The Council (London Borough of Islington) has identified this site as having the potential to act as a catalyst for the regeneration of the wider Finsbury Park area. Proposals will need to improve the quality of public spaces, as well as provide a range of land uses including residential, retail, offices, conference space, restaurants and cafes in order to diversity the existing mix of uses.
Selection will take the form of a two stage process which at stage one will invite expressions of interest. A shortlist of 5 architects will be drawn up and invited to produce concept designs.
Anyone interested in being considered should contact the RIBA Competitions Office for a preliminary briefing paper.

The deadline for expressions of interest is Tuesday 29th January 2008.
