The Enquirer understands that the contractor has sealed its latest win in Islington with the 85 Canonbury Road job.
Work will involve demolition of the existing building and structures on the site and the construction of two buildings – one five storey facing onto Canonbury Road and one four storey facing onto Compton Avenue containing 90 apartments
The plans have been scaled-down from an original seven-storey scheme which was rejected by planners after complaints about its scale from local residents.
Ardmore is believed to have beaten off competition from United House, Galliford Try and Higgins.
One source close to the project said: “Nothing has been made public yet, but it looks like Ardmore has got this one.”
Work is scheduled to start on site next month.
