King's Cross Central, Granary Square

PBA was commissioned to deliver an extensive 25,000sq m area of public realm for this multi-billion pound regeneration project, incorporating new utilities, a new bridge across Regent's Canal, hard and soft landscaping and refurbishment of the canal towpath.

Together, these new structures create a vibrant new canalside development.

At the heart of King’s Cross Central is Granary Square, an impressive public space with a fountain comprising over 1,100 individually controllable water jets. PBA designed the subterranean fountain plant rooms, fountain support structures and several reinforced concrete retaining walls for this feature.
