About Islington Square

Islington Square is a 4.5 acre mixed-use regeneration project transforming the former North London Mail Centre into a new place to live, shop and spend time.

Fronting Upper Street, just by the Almeida Theatre, Islington Square will contain leisure, residential, restaurant and retail space intended to add to the diversity of independent and national retailers in the area.

The Festival of Culture is a celebration of history, culture, family and the future – everything that Islington Square will embody.
