Approval granted for Niall McLaughlin King's Cross project

  • Comment

The Niall McLaughlin Architects-designed green building at the site of the King’s Cross Central redevelopment has won the green light

The project at 1-3 Canal Street in London will provide the energy centre for the site, complete with a combined heat and power plant and primary electrical substation. It also will feature 102 homes, a multi-use games area, cafes, bars and multi-storey car park.

Niall McLaughlin Architects won the competition by developer Argent in August 2007, seeing off Sheppard Robson, Patel Taylor, FLACQ and Make to win the design of the 31,000 square metre mixed-use building.

Niall McLaughlin said: ‘Our principal concern has been to make successful new public places in this emerging area of London. We have designed residential squares, canal-side café terraces, roof gardens and balconies looking over the old Gasholders and the spires of St. Pancras International. This is just one part of a really interesting emerging urban quarter. We believe that the unanimous support of the Council reflects the high quality of this environment.’
