Plans for four 'round' tower blocks next to Camden’s Roundhouse music venue have been unveiled.

Developer Regal London has submitted plans to Camden Council for 265 new student flats at the former One Housing HQ site in Chalk Farm Road, next to the Roundhouse.

The buildings, which will also provide affordable housing on the former office site in Chalk Farm, were designed by architects DSDHA and will range between six and 12 storeys in height.

The student flats will be located in three of the four cylindrical towers, and will be connected up to the fifth floor level.

The other ten-storey tower would provide 24 'affordable' homes for Camden residents, including family homes.

These would include six one-bedroom, 12 two-bedroom and six three-bedroom homes, all with inset balconies.

There are also plans to use the ground floor of each of the new buildings for uses including offices, cafes, and shops.

The developer says that it has positioned the affordable housing block so that it is set back from Chalk Farm Road and the Roundhouse venue, ensuring residents are more protected from noise.

The plans also propose creating new public spaces around the buildings, including widened pavements in Chalk Farm Road, and a new pedestrian route leading to the entrance of the affordable housing block.

Demolition of the existing buildings on the site will need to take place before work on the new blocks can begin.

Steve Harrington, planning director at Regal London, has previously said: “Regal London's primary goal is to ensure that the redevelopment of 100 and 100A Chalk Farm Road delivers thoughtfully designed student homes and affordable homes, complements Chalk Farm Road’s unique character, and serves the needs of both residents and the community.

“Regal London is excited to present our updated plans emphasising our commitment to invest long-term in Camden.

“These proposals will deliver a lasting social impact with new employment opportunities locally and an improved public realm along Chalk Farm Road.”

The plans can be seen in full on Camden Council’s planning portal, under reference (2024/0479/P). Comments on the application can be made until March 4.
