Ashburton Triangle, Islington, London

Date Built
Beside the Emirates Stadium off Holloway Road
Arsenal's Emirates Stadium was built on a triangular piece of land in Islington.  Two sides if the triangle are formed by railway lines and the base is Holloway Road.  The site covers an area of 17 acres, and the tip of the triangle was set aside for a mixed development which became known as the Ashburton Triangle.  This development is predominantly residential with, according to Robert MacAlpine the builders, 249 flats located over 12 floors.  The building encloses a landscaped communal garden and the majority of the apartments have a balcony or a roof terrace.  Apparently it lays claim to being the largest zinc clad building in Europe.  The building is also home to the Arsenal Museum and it has space for retail and restaurants.
