The British Library has asked Drivers Jonas Deloitte to market their 5.5 acre Colindale site as a residential development opportunity.
They decided to close the site, opposite Colindale Underground Station, and presently the home of the national newspaper collection, two years ago after being granted funding for a state of the art facility to be sited outside London. They plan to move in 2014.
Approximately two thirds of the site is developed, comprising circa 145,000 sq ft GIA of accommodation arranged over basement, ground to five upper storeys. The site is allocated for 345 residential units and retail space within Barnet Council’s Colindale Area Action Plan.
