Maiden Lane Estate’s redevelopment will provide 265 new homes for the London Borough of Camden when completed in 2017. They have been sensitively designed by PRP to blend with the modernist 1970s estate. The scheme reconciles the low rise buildings to the north with the larger emerging buildings of the King’s Cross masterplan, culminating in a 20-storey residential tower to complement the King’s Cross cluster on the other side of York Way. The redevelopment also includes retail and workspace to front York Way, which will revitalise the street frontage.
