Redwood Consulting has been appointed by Sager Group and Cain Hoy for Islington Square, the £400 million redevelopment of the former North London Royal Mail centre.

Redwood will coordinate the marketing and communications for the mixed-use development in one of North London’s most vibrant and growing boroughs. The conversion of the Edwardian buildings, which have been closed for over a decade, will provide 170,000 sq ft of retail and leisure space, 292,000 sq ft of residential space and 38,000 sq ft of office accommodation. Construction is already underway on the site, which spans 4.5 acres.

As well as overseeing and streamlining communications for Islington Square, the Redwood team is supporting the leasing teams as they work to secure aspirational brands for the development by leading all of the retail marketing and communications. The Lounge by ODEON and Third Space Health Club have already agreed to take space in Islington Square, with discussions well underway with a number of other leading brands.
