The Corporation of London has submitted plans to demolish the Richard Cloudesley School and surrounding buildings and replace them with a new school alongside a fourteen storey tower block consisting of 66 social rented flats.
The site lies just north of the Golden Lane estate, and comprises various low rise buildings that lie within both the London Borough of Islington and the City of London. Half of the proposed social units will be for the City, with the other half going to Islington.
Hawkins/Brown architects are behind the designs, opting for a deck-access block giving every flat dual-aspect. The residential component sits on top of the new two-form primary school, which also features a new three storey building in addition to a new sports hall.
