Description of P2 King's Cross
P2 is a mixed-use scheme in King’s Cross, London N1.
The development will contain a 600-seat theatre, 193,621 sq ft of office and 18,267 sq ft of retail space.
The building is situated on the corner of Handyside Street and Wollstonecraft Street, adjacent to Lewis Cubitt Square (to the east) and London’s new shopping destination Coal Drops Yard and Gasholders London to the south.
Alongside the theatre, with its associated bar and front and back of house facilities, P2 will offer nine floors of flexible office space with a fifth-floor wraparound terrace. The ground floor on the south side will be dedicated to retail space, further expanding the Coal Drops Yard complex.
The building façade is comprised of honed precast concrete panels which create shadow and depth, and allow for extensive use of large format glass. The building has been designed to the high standard of BREEAM Excellent with dedicated cycle access and a large cycle parking facility, with space for 238 bicycles as well as lockers, showers and a drying room.
Construction starts November 2018 and will complete in 2021
