Maiden Lane, Camden

The Maiden Lane project is located on York Way in the London Borough of Camden (LBC).

The scheme proposes to partially demolish parts of the existing Maiden Lane Estate and to construct 265 new dwellings, a range of ground floor commercial units along York Way, a new Energy Centre (in block J) and associated external works including a new public square at St Thomas Place.

Designed by PRP Architects, the Maiden Lane project aims to reconcile the low rise buildings to the North with the larger emerging buildings of the Kings Cross master plan, culminating in a 20 storey residential tower to complement the Kings Cross cluster on the other side of York Way. The redevelopment also includes a mixed-use development of retail and offices to front York Way, which will revitalise the street frontage.

Maiden Lane is a flagship project for the London Borough of Camden and forms part of the council’s innovative Community Investment Programme, a 15 year plan to invest over £400 million in Camden’s housing, schools and other public services.  Proposals have been developed for Maiden Lane that will deliver much needed affordable housing and provide investment to revitalise the estate and link into the wider regeneration of this part of Camden.

Axis M and E UK Ltd are providing the Design and Installation of the complete Mechanical, Electrical and Public Health services across the whole scheme. The scope includes a CHP Energy Centre and a District Heating Ring feeding the 10 residential blocks. Work commenced in January 2014 and the scheme is scheduled to be complete by April 2016.
