The facility will fund the acquisition of a development site to be used for the construction of a luxury, 22-storey residential tower comprising 54 units in King’s Cross, north London.
The development will include ground-floor commercial space and cycle storage facilities.
LBS Properties will oversee the tower’s construction as development manager.
Work is due to begin in the first half of 2020 and expected to be completed in just over two years.
