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.

Upon completion in 2021, the building will offer nine floors of flexible office space, set to house Facebook, with a fifth-floor wraparound terrace, and retail space at ground level to the south. The ground floor on the south side will be dedicated to retail space, further expanding the Coal Drops Yard complex.

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.
