Sainsbury’s £100m King’s Cross office approved

  • Comment
Allies and Morrison’s new office block for supermarket giants Sainsbury's at King’s Cross Central has been approved
The ‘store support centre’ is the first major office within the huge redevelopment to win detailed planning.

Described by the architects as reflecting the ‘strong warehouses and transit sheds’ around it, the building will provide 53,000m² of office space plus retail and small business units, a gym, and food research and demonstration workshops.

The building will be plugged into the site-wide combined heat and power plant and contain rainwater harvesting and greywater recycling systems.

Construction is due to start in May this year and expected to take around three years.

Allies and Morrison developed the masterplan for the area in association with Porphyrios Associates. The King's Cross redevelopment will eventually house 450,000m² of office space and 2,000 new homes.

The new home of Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, also in the Eastern Goods Yard area, Kings Cross, was granted planning permission last April.
