Seven Pancras Square has an unrivalled location at the gateway to King’s Cross. In a design by Studio Downie Architects, a new build office wraps around the existing Grade II Listed Stanley Building. The building is being developed by The Office Group to provide serviced offices, club rooms and meeting space.
The building is approximately 19,700 sq ft net over 5 floors. A typical floor is 3,900 sq ft. A striking lightwell links the old and new buildings and brings the original Victorian roof terrace back into use. Goods and services are delivered below street level via a shared access route. The target completion date for this building is 2016.
As with all the office buildings at King’s Cross, the very latest technology will reduce running costs for the occupiers and minimise environmental impact.
The building will meet the BREEAM standard ‘Excellent’ as a minimum and will be linked to the site-wide district heating network. This network will provide close to 100% of the development’s heating and hot water needs. The building has been designed to maximise the environmental benefits of its location. Orientation, solar shading, the use of thermal mass for cooling and passive ventilation systems all contribute to energy efficiency.
The shops and restaurants in the new King’s Cross Station and St Pancras International are just steps away. While the best of the High Street will be available on bustling King’s Boulevard.
The building is located on Pancras Square with its terraced water feature and outdoor seating areas – the perfect place for a business breakfast, al fresco lunch, or after-work drinks. And a three-minute walk takes you to the boutique shopping and eating around Granary Square and Regent’s Canal. A public sports centre with two pools and a public library will be located on Pancras Square.
