Curated For The Cyclist


Commuters in the city are finding alternative ways to travel to work in lieu of public transport, and the biggest hitter of all comes with little surprise as the bike. As health conscious beings we endeavour to better ourselves and what better way to do that than by getting some exercise in before heading to work.

What's more, with cycle lanes expanding, TFL is also setting out to expand its bicycle hire scheme – sponsored by Santander, with the aim to produce eight more docking stations in the capital and 1,700 more Santander Cycle bikes, an increase of nearly 15%.

May proved to be the best in London’s cycle hire scheme’s 10 year history, with 1,120,620 hires in May alone. May also held the record for the highest ever number of hires in a weekend, with 132,979 on 30-31 May. The scheme has seen a rise in the demand of free hires by NHS staff, with 30,000 free journeys made since the offer was made available in March.

Angela Walsh, Sales & Marketing Director at FEC, comments: “There are always a variety of factors which determine whether a potential new home is right for you and your family, and we believe out teams are highly skilled at objectively guiding and supporting potential buyers – however cycling demands certainly appear to be a top priority in buyers right now.”

She adds: “Given its location to the city, schools and North London greenery, as well as the cycling facilities on offer, we’re confident Hornsey Town Hall will be the first choice for young people, downsizers and families; especially when considering their new home in the city, while city life as we know it continues to evolve.”

The revival of the Town Hall includes a creative arts and work space for the community, a new hotel, roof top bar with views over London and new homes in the Town Hall grounds.

The collection of one, two and three-bedroom apartments are spread across two new build blocks, a mews building and a carefully restored Broadway annex in the Town Hall grounds. Make Architects has ensured that the new buildings capture the spirit and style of Hornsey Town Hall, which will be evident in the façades, where layered brickwork and carefully crafted geometric metal balustrades come together to reflect the Town Hall’s original Art Deco features and modernist aesthetic along with the distinctive concrete pattern from the Hornsey Library.

The homes will be finished to the highest standard throughout, with some featuring floor-to-ceiling windows and chevron timber flooring which has been designed in keeping with the original flooring in the Town Hall. Most will feature balconies, terraces or gardens, opening up from either the living areas or master bedrooms. Designer kitchens will feature fully integrated appliances, while bathrooms will offer a contemporary take on Hornsey Town Hall’s modernist aesthetic.
