History

The apartments were sold out in summer 2022.

Also known as Brill Place Tower. Designs by dRMM won the planning consent. Stiff+Trevillion has worked on the building since.

2020 March - Investec Structured Property Finance agrees to provide Brill Place Limited with a £35 million multi-tranche loan. The loan funds the acquisition of a prime development site in Kings Cross, North London, and subsequent delivery of a luxury 22-storey residential tower.

Planning permission was obtained in October 2016 (ref: 2015/2704/P) for a comprehensive scheme comprising 7 development plots, together with significant improvements to the quality of the open space, play facilities, landscaping and connectivity. Brill Place Tower forms Plot 7 of the consented masterplan.
