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.
