BAM set to start on King’s Cross scheme as designs approved

27 Aug 14 Designs for the latest office development at King’s Cross have been approved by Camden Council, opening the way for BAM to build the scheme.

It will begin construction of Three Pancras Square this year, with the building expected to be completed in summer 2016.

Three Pancras Square, designed by Porphyrios Associates, is an 11-storey building occupying a prominent position on the King’s Cross development. The building will be largely office space (160,000 sq ft) with shops and restaurants at ground level (13,000 sq ft).

Three Pancras Square will sit at the corner of King’s Boulevard and Goods Way, overlooking the Regent’s Canal, with its main entrance on Pancras Square. There will also be an entrance on the building’s eastern side.

Argent partner Nick Searl said: “We are creating an attractive and accessible work place, 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 building will contain ten floors of offices, built around one single core to make the most efficient use of space. The central core contains all six passenger lifts, the stairs and services. This design enables all of the offices to have windows around the perimeter.  The ground floor of Three Pancras Square has glass fronted retail spaces.
