Planning consent in Camden 26.02.21

Camden Council’s planning committee has voted in favour of a linked application for Belgrove House and Acorn House for client Precis Advisory.

Located on Euston Road opposite King's Cross and St Pancras stations, Belgrove House is a new-build specialised laboratory and office building for the life-sciences sector to be occupied by MSD as a UK Discovery Research Centre and HQ.

The scheme is targeting a BREEAM Outstanding rating. It is designed to be innovative, highly sustainable and an example of carbon emissions reduction in construction, operation, and future refurbishment. Operational energy is reduced through a 'biophilic' double-skin facade allowing natural ventilation and providing a zone for planting.

It is a green building with numerous planted terraces and an extensive landscape plan to bring trees and plants to the surrounding streets. The project offers an excellent opportunity to dramatically enhance the surrounding area, bringing active facades where there are currently blank walls, by removing street clutter and bringing greenery to all four sides of the building.

Acorn House, on nearby Gray’s Inn Road, replaces a 1960s office block with a residential-led mixed-use scheme that includes 33 affordable homes, affordable workspace and retail units.

Work is expected to start on site later this year, subject to approval by the Mayor of London and issue of full planning permission.
