Camden Council has given the go-ahead for the next phase of office buildings at King’s Cross.
These are the two remaining buildings within the site’s Zone T, adding to the 323,000 sq m of office space approved at King’s Cross to date.
Both mixed-use buildings have been designed by Bennetts Associates and include office space, with retail at ground level, fronting onto a new street called Canal Reach.
King’s Cross is a 27 ha regeneration site being developed by the King’s Cross Central Limited Partnership – developer Argent is the asset manager for the project. The site is also home to the £1bn Google London HQ, which Construction News revealed in June has begun moving forward again after a three-year delay.
Construction News understands Argent has approached a number of companies to see if they will bid for the project, with some of the UK’s top contractors including Mace and Sir Robert McAlpine understood to be interested in the scheme.
