Last week, Buy to Rent at King's Cross topped out, with the final precast slab sliding into place on the highest floor level.

The development for Argent Related is their first BTR scheme in the UK and features residential buildings by FCBStudios and David Morley Architects as well as leisure space and a managed ecology garden by Haptic Architects and Jan Kattein.

FCBStudios’ building, W1, is located at the north of the triangular site and is made up of connected blocks that step up in scale from 11 to 16 storeys at the northeast corner. The building provides 140 rental homes that sit above a generous communal amenity floor which spills out onto the central public garden.

The project is due to complete next year.
