Huge King's Cross masterplan moves forward

  • Comment
The vast redevelopment of King's Cross in London has taken another substantial step forward.

Developer Argent yesterday submitted its final amendments to the outline planning application for the massive site, which was masterplanned by Dimitri Porphyrios and Allies and Morrison.

The amendments represent a series of significant changes to the original plans revealed last year.

These amendments include:

nearly 100 more homes, including more three- and four-bed family homes;

a new primary school, primary healthcare services, a Flux park, children's centre and sports facilities (including a swimming pool);

new plans for the surface transport to serve King's Cross and St Pancras stations, including options for the Cross-River Tram and an 800-space cycle interchange;

reduced building heights, including the proposed Gas Holder triplet redevelopment;

combined heat and power, brown and green roofs and wind turbines; and

a new park and an increase in open and green spaces.

A statement from Argent said the amendments, submitted to Camden and Islington councils, are the result of further extensive discussions with the two councils, London mayor Ken Livingstone, Transport for London, English Heritage and others.
