Bam has scooped a contract to build the latest office development at Argent’s King’s Cross, understood to be worth more than £50m.
Three Pancras Square is a 160,000 sq ft office space, with 13,000 sq ft at ground level for shops and restaurants.
The contractor will begin construction later this year, with the building expected to be complete in summer 2016.
Argent partner Nick Searl said: “We are creating an attractive and accessible workplace, in a building that does justice to its surroundings.
“Three Pancras Square is the next piece of the Pancras Square puzzle and sits in close proximity to the Regent’s Canal and some of the area’s most striking heritage features.”
The 11-storey building was designed by Porphyrios Associates and will sit at the corner of King’s Boulevard and Goods Way, overlooking Regent’s Canal.
It will contain ten floors of offices, built around one single core, which will contain six lifts, stairs and services. The ground floor will be glass-fronted retail space.
Porphyrios Associates principal Demetri Porphyrios said: “One of the most pivotal places to build in the King’s Cross masterplan is the northern tip of the King’s Boulevard.
“This tree-lined street runs from King’s Cross station and St Pancras International, over the Regent’s Canal to Granary Square, home to Central Saint Martins.”
