The hotel (pictured above) will be built off site in a factory in Bedford, with work set to begin on site to create foundations and a concrete core.
The scheme was designed by architects tp bennett.
“This is [a] thriving area surprisingly short of hotel spaces, so we’re delighted to be working with Tide Construction and Vision Modular Systems, who have been leading the way in off-site construction,” said Nenad Manasijevic, principal director at tp bennett.
“Our key brief was to make a real impact on the public realm by opening up the building to make the streetscape more hospitable.

- Development lenders still wary about funding modular housing schemes
- Councils ignoring modular have 'little chance' of tackling housing crisis
“By embracing BIM [building information management], we’ve also been able to really prioritise sustainability as part of the design process, and this will pay dividends down the line for the hotel operator.
“Finsbury Park has an immensely rich heritage and we’re confident this new hotel will anchor further investment, creating future heritage for north London.”
Ronan Farrell, design manager at Tide Construction, added: “This exciting new hotel will help rejuvenate a busy corner of north London.
“We’re delighted that Islington Council has recognised the benefits of off-site construction and the timeframe for delivering this project will be halved by our ability to build it in Bedford and transport modules to the site from our factory.
“Architects at tp bennett have done a fantastic job creating a design that helps [to] breathe new life into the streetscape and we are confident this new destination will become part of a vibrant and fast-expanding neighbourhood.”
