The Author Building occupies 1.1 ha of former railway lands of the Kings Cross Opportunity Area within the London Boroughs of Camden and Islington.
At the north of the triangular site our building is made up of two blocks that step up in scale from 11 to 16 storeys and provide 140 market rental homes. These sit above a generous communal amenity floor, with a private dining room, screening room, gym and co-working spaces, which spills out onto the central public garden. At lower ground floor shops and cafes front onto York Way.
