Planning permission has been granted for two new skyscrapers in north London, UK, to UK-based Benson & Forsyth.

The 21-storey mixed-use towers will include 355 flats, shops and office space.

The £30m ($46.5m) scheme will be the area's biggest project and is part of a five-year regeneration project in Islington.

The 46,000m² buildings will be located on the soon-to-be-demolished City North Islington Trading Estate.

Benson & Forsyth beat John McAslan & Partners, Panter Hudspith, Flacq and Studio Egret West to win the design competition in 2008.
