Hyde New Homes completes its Islington community with the unveiling of the final phase of Packington Square


Hyde New Homes and Rydon are delighted to announce the launch of the final stage of the Packington Square development. A blend of classic modern styling and elegant design, with plenty of interior comfort, the properties offer a perfect living environment, as well as being conveniently located on the doorstep of the Regents Canal, just a short walk from Angel Station and all that Islington has to offer.


Underfloor heating runs throughout each property, ceiling-to-floor windows offer unbroken natural light and thermally broken double glazing which keeps the heat out when it’s hot and in when it’s not, saving on heating costs throughout the year. Living rooms have been designed with flexibility to accommodate all lifestyles and generous balconies provide views over an attractive landscaped garden square. Glass balustrades further enhance the sense of space.


All apartments have video entry systems with colour monitors, and award winning Hyperoptic broadband provides for the convenience of ultrafast broadband speeds. The bedrooms boast built-in wardrobes, and large mirrored cabinets with concealed LED lighting, framed by large-format porcelain tiling are standard to every bathroom and en-suite. Contemporary light grey kitchens with soft-close handleless doors and quartz stone worktops provide understated interior design luxury, combined with a functional environment for cooking and entertaining.

With a heritage traceable to the times of Tudor England, life in Packington Square is woven into the history of Islington, but delivers an entirely new residential quarter. London’s first ever farmers’ market is just down the road, City hubs Shoreditch and Clerkenwell are less than a mile away and the trail-blazing Old Street Roundabout is just a little further.


Entertainment opportunities in the area are abundant, with no fewer than four theatres, a plethora of independent and vintage stores and of course the famous Screen on the Green cinema. An 18th Century census listed some 56 ale houses on nearby Upper Street and the area has upheld the tradition, adding in gourmet versions of almost every cuisine from Ottolenghi to French Frederick’s and Afghan Kitchen.


The on-going ambitious and progressive regeneration scheme developed in partnership with the Hyde Group and Rydon has seen over £170 million invested into transforming this area of Islington, to create a new and vibrant, rich and diverse community. The last of six stages of the demolition and rebuild programme Packington Square joins the almost 600 new homes that have been delivered to date.


The starting price for a one bedroom apartment is £485,000 – two bedroom apartments start from £685,000. To find out more or register your interest, please call Sales Agents JLL on 0207 2267439, visit or follow us on Twitter #PackingtonSquare.
