When it is opened, New Islington station will be the first stop on the new Piccadilly–Droylsden (and eventually Ashton) line. It is situated adjacent to Pollard Street; this view is taken from Pollard Street; the "Chips" development is behind the station.

Designed by Will Alsop, Chips (LinkExternal link )is promoted by developers Urban Splash as “one of the area's most significant buildings”. The ground floor is commercial space, whilst the floors above contain 142 residential apartments. The building is surrounded by canals on three sides and canals are highlighted by the names emblazoned on the side.
