Crowndale Road

London is full of these bizarre little sites that at first glance seem un-buildable, but then you look closer...

We employed a brilliant young architect to look at this site who found a way of getting an exciting town house on a funny shaped bit of land owned by Camden Council. Unlike the small Brighton house project (which we estimate costs roughly what it's worth to build and therefore many not be interesting to people who are motivated by profit), this site has a clear surplus.

It's not plain sailing though. It is right next to a conservation area, so the planners may get twitchy. There could be right to light issues with the neighbours and there'll be a bunch of other issues to contend with, as with any building project.

This is just one tiny example of the thousands of 'Greyfield' sites in Camden or tens of thousands in Greater London that we will identify, catalogue, map and hopefully redevelop on behalf of the landowner.
