The North London Mail Centre was established in 1904

Sager bought the 500,000 sq ft North London Mail Centre for £30m in 2003. The site is now a £370million development called the 'Islington Square Project' providing nearly 43,000 square feet of green space across rooftops in the heart of Islington. The Islington Square project will become a luxury complex of 356 homes alongside shops, cafes, restaurants, offices, a health club and a cinema.

Model of how it will look when completed

I visited here 3 times in as many months with a few different people, skeleton key, adders, monkey and gabe if I remember rightly. We went up the crane twice, up on the roof of the main building, and down into the bowels of the construction site. It's a big playground with a few things to do. The main building although completely stripped out looks as though it will have it's exterior retained. The site is also home to a live royal mail depot so there is always some activity down below. Here's a few pics from all over the site.

The centre of the main building
