King’s Cross plans go for approval

Planners will today begin reviewing designs for the first phase of the £2 billion King’s Cross redevelopment in north London.

While applications for the bulk of the £600 million stage still need a green light from Camden Borough Council, Kier is preparing to undertake the first construction work on site.

Developer Argent has already obtained planning consent for one element of the project - an arcade through the Great Northern Hotel built by Kier subsidiary Wallis.

Argent construction director Tony Giddings said remaining plans in the first phase of the development include a 4,000-place university and a 23,000 sq m office.
