Development partnership the King's Cross Central Partnership has submitted detailed plans to Camden Council for one of several new office buildings proposed at London's Kings Cross Central development site.

Under the proposed scheme, an 11-storey office building would be built at the northern end of the new Pancras Square. The building, named Four Pancras Square, would be one of seven Grade A office buildings planned for the new square, to the south of Regent's Canal.

A total of 22,000 sq m of floorspace has been proposed within the building. The ten above-ground floors would house office space, with retail space proposed for the ground and lower ground floors. The plans also include basement cycle and motorcycle parking and a decked roof terrace with water pools and planting.

The development partnership said that the Eric Parry Architects-designed building would be connected to the local district heating network and would "meet the BREEAM standard 'Excellent' as a minimum".

Pancras Square forms part of the 260,000 sq m Kings Cross Central development on former railway land to the north of Kings Cross Station. Outline planning permission was granted for the comprehensive mixed-use redevelopment of the wider site in December 2006.

The Council has set a target date of 17 February for the determination of the application.
