Drummond Street is a north London neighbourhood centre with a distinct cultural identity, with several of the businesses established by first generation Indian- and Bangladeshi immigrants. Drummond Street is an important cultural and economic asset to an area of London that features in the top 10% most deprived areas in England, but with it’s strategic location, it also contributes to London’s identity as a global multicultural city.
The neighbourhood is facing significant challenges, mostly as a consequence of high speed rail construction works around the adjacent Euston Station. Disruption is detrimentally affecting the environmental quality of the area and severing key strategic connections with the wider urban context.
Our strategy for the regeneration of Drummond Street set out a number of complementary actions to transform the high street into a successful and vibrant neighbourhood centre with a unique identity. Funding has now been secured and the project has moved into implementation.
Phase 1 was completed in June 2021, introducing the Drummond Streatery to provide safe outside dining space for indepenedent restaurants in the wake of the COVID pandemic. The modular system occupies former car parking spaces and can be re-configured and re-deployed to accommodate roadworks. Come dine with us!
