Young have recently submitted for planning, working closely with Knight Frank and Vectio Consulting the proposal completes the Masterplan of the Islington Regeneration Company (IRC). Providing an additional 178 student studio apartments within the Knowledge Quarter and with close links to several of the city’s leading educational institutions.
