Bennetts scoops King’s Cross supermarket role

  • Comment

Bennetts Associates has been appointed to design a 2,700m² megastore for upmarket supermarket chain Waitrose in London’s King’s Cross

The £18 million building is the latest development to be announced for Argent’s 27-hectare King’s Cross regeneration programme.

Transforming the grade II-listed Midlands Goods Shed and East Handyside Canopy, the retail scheme will sit close to Stanton William’s recently opened Central St Martins campus and a proposed Aga Khan university by Fumihiko Maki.

Bennetts’ proposal includes a supermarket, 280m² cooking school, café and 2,300m² of offices. The project will not include a dedicated car park but customers will be permitted to use a planned multi-storey car park nearby. Argent plans to include 46,500m² of retail on its £2 billion regeneration of former railway lands surrounding King’s Cross station.

A reserved matters planning application is planned to be submitted in May with construction expected to start later this year and completion due in Spring 2015.
