We think "Heritage Buildings Register" must refer to the register of Listed buildings, maintained by English Heritage 2006-15 and then by Historic England.

N16, Albion Street, 154

We've marked this as 'lost' because Google Street Views shows it up to April 2019 but by September 2020 it had been removed.

The Listing entry points out that this is one of a pair, the other being 156, attached and facing west.

From Victorian Web: "One of Thomas Cubitt's first investments was a parcel of plots in Stoke Newington in 1821. In spite of being so close to the City, this area was then quite undeveloped. Cubitt laid out wide roads and built 70 or so substantial houses here, both before and concurrent with his better-known housing developments in Belgravia and Pimlico. He worked here until about 1837."
