New Kings Cross square plans submitted

Network Rail has submitted plans for a new public square in front of King’s Cross station, following a four year design process and more than 4,500 responses to a public consultation on the proposals.

The completion of the 7,000m² space in 2013 will reveal the Victorian grade I listed station façade for the first time in 150 years and will open up the space currently occupied by the 1970s concourse extension.

The new design by architect Stanton Williams incorporates more trees than the original and a combination of traditional Yorkstone and granite paving. An area suitable for displaying large scale art installations has also been identified.

The submission of the planning application follows further progress on the station redevelopment this week, as a new road alongside the station opened in recent days.
