First contract awarded for King’s Cross mixed-use scheme
VolkerFitzpatrick has been awarded a £29M contract by Reef Group, to deliver The Apex, one of six mixed-use new builds forming the ‘Tribeca’ development in the heart of King’s Cross.
Following initial works in June to demolish the former Royal Mail building on St Pancras Way, the team will separate the structural slab from its neighbouring plot and then construct the new seven-storey Apex building.
The ground floor level will feature reception, cafe and retail areas, while levels one to six will have the flexibility to be used as either laboratory or office space. The building will also include a basement level with changing facilities, bicycle and plant storage and a roof with a plant enclosure to service the floors below.
The project is scheduled for completion in early 2023.
