Islington Square Development

Islington Square Development - London's New Neighbourhood

Islington is one of London's most popular boroughs. Since 2011, the local population here has increased by 11%, and 3% annual increases are expected between now and 2029. If you've ever spent any time in Islington this probably won't come as much of a surprise. Cosmopolitan and ridiculously well populated with eateries and amenities - yet with a surprisingly local feel - this part of London is somewhere that people tend to want to put down roots. Before now, Islington has been very much known for its terraces, not all of which are in great shape. The new Islington Square Development is something totally different and, as Islington letting agents, we're excited about what it offers to anyone lucky enough to live in it.

The history of Islington Square Development

Not that long ago, the Islington Square Development was the North London Royal Mail sorting and delivery centre, a useful but not especially glamorous or welcoming location. It has since been redeveloped to create 263 new homes and 108 serviced apartments, as well as 170,000 square feet of retail, dining and leisure amenities. The development is just a 10 minute walk from Angel Underground station and has quick connections to just about anywhere in London thanks to its prime central spot.

Why we love it

  • The aesthetic. From the penthouses to the studios, the homes in this development come with tons of character. The original sorting office dates back to Edwardian times and many of the properties have kept their original features.
  • The variety. The Islington Square Development offers a wide range of different types of properties, from affordable one beds through to the lavish penthouse spaces.
  • It's very London. If you really want to feel like you're living in the heart of the city this development is for you - it combines the elegance of London a well as an industrial edge thanks to the warehouse aesthetic of many of the apartments.
  • The convenience. It's not just the fact that this development is incredibly well placed that makes it so appealing - wherever you work or socialise in London will be only a short journey away - but also the amenities on site. Think Covent Garden style shopping, cinema, a gym and great coffee all just a few steps from where you live.
  • It has great heritage. Living in Islington means taking up residence where many other famous faces and culturally relevant people have before you, from Charles Dickens to Charlie Chaplin.

Residential lettings
We pride ourselves on being genuine industry experts, providing a positive experience, from enquiry to after care. Storeys focuses exclusively on lettings, and we value properties, we don’t just list them. Knowledge and innovation mean we can be competitive on costs while also delivering an individually tailored service.
Property management
Storeys is a bespoke offering based on the fundamental principle of value for money – we want happy customers. Paperless tech and eSigning deliver efficiency and convenience, no high street office minimises costs. The result is a streamlined service nimble enough to tailor what we do to suit your needs.
Aesthetics, natural light, building quality, and overall finish – these aren’t ‘extras’ in a Storeys valuation, they’re as much a part of the process as size, condition and location. We look at individual property potential, not generic criteria. Factors like space for modern living arrangements, such as flexible working, are incorporated too. Our valuations are all the more accurate and successful for it. There is a perfect tenant for every property if you know how to find them.
Short-term lettings
Providing value for tenants and continuity for landlords, Storeys short-term lets run from 4 weeks to 6 months. We work with major London relocation teams and a global contacts network to match international tenants to perfect London properties.
Vacant property Management
We can manage your vacant property in-between tenancies or refurbishment, giving you peace of mind that the property is being looked after and inspected on a regular basis.
Superior Marketing
There is just no comparison between static photos and VR when it comes to property marketing. VR allows tenants to do a virtual walk around and get a realistic feel for the property - their expectations are grounded in reality, and properly managed. This makes VR a very effective tool, not just for generating interest and viewings but also converting those to offers. That’s why we partner with VRPM to create a virtual reality perspective for every property we handle.
Airbnb Management
We can manage your Airbnb account and make sure each booking runs smoothly, keys are always available for handover and the property is ready for the next occupation. This can run very well alongside our short-term corporate letting service.
Rent Protection
If your tenant defaults on the rent, Storeys have you covered. We also cover your legal expsenses and pay you rental income if your property is vacant whilst we remarket for new tenants. Don’t worry Storeys have your back.*ask a member of the team for more info. This service is included for every Storeys managed property.
