Building S2 is a Grade A office building overlooking Lewis Cubitt Park and Handyside Street. Handyside Street is the main commercial thoroughfare to the north of the canal and is easily accessible by bus, bike or car. Six tube lines, two mainline stations and Eurostar are all within an eight minute walk.

Nearby Amenities

Just across Lewis Cubitt Square is the eclectic mix of shopping and eating around the Coal Drops. The heritage buildings and cobbled streets here will be buzzing with daily food markets, special seasonal markets, street food stalls and more. Grab a bite, and head for one of the local parks – there’s Granary Square, Lewis Cubitt Park or Gasholder Park by the canal to choose from.

A short walk through the historic centre of King’s Cross takes you to King’s Boulevard where the best of the High Street will be available. And the shops and restaurants in the new King’s Cross Station and St Pancras International are seven minutes away.

A public car park will be located at the end of Handyside Street in Tapestry. While the neighbouring building, T2, is being designed to house a health club and primary healthcare centre. An outdoor multi-use games area is within a two minute walk and the new Pancras Square Leisure Centre is just across the canal in Pancras Square.

Environmental Performance

As with all the office buildings at King’s Cross, the very latest technology will reduce running costs and minimise environmental impact.

The building is being designed to meet the BREEAM standard ‘Outstanding’ and will be linked to the site-wide district heating network . This network provides close to 100% of the development’s heating and hot water needs, as well as 80% of electricity demand. The building has been designed to maximize the environmental benefits of its location. Orientation, thermal modelling and the use of thermal mass for cooling all contribute to energy efficiency as well as opening windows and sun terraces.
