Two New Open Spaces for King's Cross

TWO NEW OPEN SPACES FOR KING'S CROSS

Two new connecting public open spaces at King's Cross Central have been given planning permission by Camden Council. The park will have gently sculpted landforms to create 3 sub-spaces for relaxed, informal outdoor recreation and will be flanked by an avenue of London Plane trees on one side and groupings of ornamental trees on the other. The trees provide a visual connection between the spine of spaces that run on the north south axis throughout the development. The square has been designed in collaboration with Olin Landscape Architects comprises high quality granite finishes, planting and a substantial water feature. The space is intended and to complement Granary Square, which opened to the public in 2012.

The park and square are due to open in early 2015.
