    Iconic North London Landmark Hornsey Town Hall springs to life

    17 April 2023

    FEC is delighted to have welcomed its first residents to Uren House at their iconic Hornsey Town Hall development.  This exciting milestone marks the first of many towards the much-anticipated grand opening of this legendary Art Deco Grade II* Listed North London landmark, in the heart of Crouch End

    With over 70 residents now residing in their new homes in the grounds of the Town Hall, this community-centred development will offer a vibrant destination to live, work and create, having undergone meticulous restoration in recent years.

    Proving hugely popular, 80 per cent of homes have now sold, 90 per cent of which are owner-occupiers. Drawn to its location in the heart of one of London’s most loved urban villages, which has just been named The Sunday Times Best Place to Live in London 2023, purchasers range from first-time buyers to downsizers, impressed by its notable heritage, modern living as well as its rare arts and culture facilities.   

    Up against several other London boroughs, Crouch End was crowned London’s overall winner by a panel of judges last month that assessed its amenities and praised its cultural scene, supermarkets, independent businesses, green spaces, cafes and restaurants, lido and location.

    Reginald Uren, was commissioned as the lead architect to design the Town Hall in the early 1930s which would house Hornsey Borough Council. It is one of the earliest and most iconic examples of modernist architecture in Britain. The original features have been resorted and retained, to include the grand staircases, terrazzo flooring, original ironmongery and metal balustrades.

    FEC is restoring The Town Hall and Town Hall Square, transforming it into a destination address and vibrant addition to North London’s property market. John Connolly, Head of UK Development at Far East Consortium, commented: “We are delighted to see the first residents move in. It’s wonderful to see a true London landmark starting to take on a new lease of life.  We have honoured Hornsey Town Hall’s distinguished legacy while creating new uses, which has proved a perfect combination for buyers. Once fully open, owning a home here with its heritage, culture and community spaces will enable people to enjoy this much-loved London building for generations to come.”

    It’s not just the stunning new homes and the buildings rich history that makes this development so special, but the community spaces. The development houses a new Arts Centre operated by Time + Space, café, restaurants, roof terrace with stunning views of Alexandra Palace, co-working space tailored to creatives and Dao by Dorsett Hotel. Taking this much-loved landmark into a glorious new era.

    Award-winning Make Architects, the inspiration behind the architecture and Design of Hornsey Town Hall, have not only restored the unique period features found throughout The Hall, but channelled its distinctive modernist style into the apartments.

    Spread across three newly built blocks and the restored annex building there is a selection of one-and two-bedroom homes still available. All featuring the highest specification, they benefit from open-plan living areas and airy bedrooms with floor-to-ceiling windows flooding them with natural light. Referencing the Town Hall, Art Deco themes run throughout homes from chevron timber flooring in the halls and living areas to balconies lined with detailed metal balustrades. All homes feature balconies, terraces or small gardens.

    Centred around The Broadway and its 19th-century Clock Tower, Crouch End is an artsy residential community favoured by creatives and families.  Streets are lined with coffee shops, eateries, boutiques and bookstores. Nearby Hampstead Heath and Highgate Wood are the perfect places for walks and picnics, and with Alexandra Park to the north and the landscaped gardens of Finsbury Park to the south, Crouch End sits in between some of the city’s best-loved green spaces.

    Crouch End is well connected to London and beyond. Stopping outside Town Hall Square the W7 bus runs to Finsbury Park Underground Station, with connections into central London via the Victoria line, and National Rail services across the county. While Hornsey Rail Station, a short walk from the development provides trains to The City in 25 minutes.  

    Prices start from £494,950 for the remaining homes. For further information please contact Patrizia at the marketing suite on 0797 2000 253 or email
