Planning application for Building R4

Camden borough planners have received the application to develop Building R4 in Kings Cross Central, a sloping site between York Way and the future ‘East Street’ and ‘East Lane’ (not their eventual names). The Forum had a presentation on the design for this block in the autumn. Now the final planning application is out for consultation. The application is here.

The application is to erect a 15 storey building within Development Zone R4 to be used for residential purposes from upper ground level to level 14 (comprising 117 units in total, consisting of 78 general needs social rented, 24 shared ownership and 15 mental health supporting housing), internal cycle parking and services area at lower ground floor level and retail/café /bar/takeaway uses (classes A1-A5), office (Class B1) and/or potential community and leisure uses (Classes D1-D2) at ground floor level on the York Way frontage, together with adjacent public realm and new road junctions. The application number is 2010/0389/P.

    The view of this building from the east side from York Way is very hard edged. It does not add grace to the area. Amenities do exist but they are too few. 50% balconies are too little and the roof garden too small.
