Description of Vantage Point
Vantage Point is a 17-storey residential tower in Islington, London N19.
Essential Living has converted Archway Tower from a vacant office building to a residential building.
The development comprises 33 studio, 58 one-bedroom and 27 two-bedroom apartments, all designed and constructed specifically for renting.
Ca 7,000sqft of social spaces - a lobby, drawing room, library, private dining room, roof terraces and games room.
Archway Tower, built in 1963, was occupied by various Government departments until it became vacant and lay empty for a number of years in the 1990s. Between 2001 and 2012 it came back into use as the home of the Office of the Public Guardian and the Court of Protection. In 2012 both of these occupiers were relocated as a result of central government policy.
Vantage Point is located immediately above Archway Underground Station, at the junction of Archway Road and Holloway Road.
Construction works started in 2015 and the redevelopment involved internal refurbishment throughout and over-cladding of the existing façade.
Vantage Point is Essential Living's first development with units available for rent, and it launched in September 2016.
