NLA AWARD 2018 WINNER FOR BUILT PUBLIC SPACESWe are delighted to accept recognition for Public Spaces BUILT WINNER award for Canal Corridor, King's Cross on behalf of our KX team!
The Canal Corridor is a series of interlocking spaces along the Regent's Canal extending through the historic core of the King's Cross Development, connecting Maiden Lane Bridge at York Way to the east and the railway bridge accessing St Pancras Station to the west.
The design respects the history of the site, enhances biodiversity and provides inclusive access to the towpath and the new public squares and gardens along the canal. Two new pedestrian/cycle bridges have been installed over the canal to improve east/west connections between Camden and Islington.
The scheme brings sustained social and environmental benefits to the King's Cross area and supports London as an international exemplar of how regeneration can respond to aspirations for a greener and healthier city.
