Camden, London
2016 -

Set within a new public realm alongside the Regent’s Canal, the mixed-use development will deliver state-of-the-art laboratory and office space at the heart of London’s biotech cluster.

The scheme will also support vibrant retail, restaurants and residential space, offering a place to connect, innovate and relax within a network of excellence. Camden is London’s fastest-growing borough with a series of high-profile universities, hospitals and scientific and medical institutions such as the Crick Institute opening there or expanding in recent years.

Tribeca replaces a large and monolithic 1980s sorting office – previously referred to as the Ugly Brown Building by its occupants, and will feature six mixed-use buildings connected by pedestrian routes and public space that will also reopen access to the canal edge for the first time in 150 years. The structures will house 73 mixed-tenure apartments, retail and leisure facilities as well as a range of workspaces including laboratory space, creating a distinct, characterful and outward-looking scheme informed by its canalside location. The residential units are located to the south of the site, carefully orientated to offer views along the Regents Canal and to the south. Each unit will seek to maximise daylight and views, with flexible layouts and generous private balconies. A mixture of high-end private sale and affordable units are proposed in a range of unit sizes in order to create a diverse new neighbourhood. The scheme has planning consent.
