10 NEWS MIXED USE W Zone at King’s Cross gets go-ahead


Kings Cross Central Limited Partnership (KCCLP) has been given the final go ahead by Islington Council for one of the final schemes in the King’s Cross Central (KXC) development. The W Zone, located off York Way and Randell’s Road, will comprise three mixed-use buildings, known as W1, W2 and W3, positioned around a central podium garden.


The site masterplan, developed by David


Morley Architects, includes a mixture of residential, across a range of tenures, as well as leisure space, plus a managed ecology garden with a focus on education and community engagement, to be known as the Habitat Zone. Buildings W1 and W2, which together


include 218 residential units, have been designed by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios and David Morley Architects. The buildings were granted reserved matters planning approval in June 2016, with minor amends recently approved by Islington Council in March 2019. The recent amends to Buildings W1 and W2 were made with the intention of increasing and improving the shared residential facilities within the scheme, while the number of homes remains the same as the original planning permission. W3, designed by Haptic Architects, is set to be a leisure-focused building, featuring a gym, nursery and cafe. The three buildings will be accessed from York Way. Designed by Jan Kattein Architects in close collaboration with educational charity Global Generation, the Habitat Zone is situated to the north of the three buildings and will include four small, single-storey educational buildings – a community kitchen, a classroom, an admin building and a ‘growing tunnel.’ Central to the proposal for the Habitat Zone is a 1,097 m2


ecology garden, featuring a wildlife


meadow, an orchard, fruit and vegetable planters, and a wildlife maze. Building W1 is split into two blocks of 11 storeys and 16 storeys respectively, which will comprise 140 open market residential apartments with a single retail unit at street level, fronting York Way. Meanwhile, Building W2 is an eight storey mixed tenure building featuring 36 social
