A huge development in King’s Cross is nearing completion after almost twenty years of work. The 67 acres of land was derelict, formerly used by the railway. Argent took on the project, hiring Roger Madelin for the design. The plan was to create a thriving mixed-use neighbourhood. This is now almost a reality.

New builds

The scale of the project is incredibly impressive. The Brownfield land has become 20 new streets home to 50 buildings and 26 acres of public space including parks and squares. In total there will be 1,900 homes as well as restaurants, bars, a retail hub, and an art school in a former Victorian warehouse.

The flagship developments on the site are new residential blocks within the iron gasholder frames. These structures were part of the heritage of the area and have been restored carefully. As a result they remain an important part of the feel of the area.

Older homes

It is not just new homes drawing people to King’s Cross. There are also several streets of older homes, including Victorian villas with beautiful flat fronts and terraces. Some Georgian homes are available and there are more in neighbouring areas. People also love the warehouse conversions and how they combine old with new.

Renting potential

King’s Cross is very popular with renters because it has incredible transport links. Wealthy students are common, particularly those studying at UAL’s Central Saint Martins or UCL. People working in the tech industry also choose homes in the area because a number of notable businesses have offices nearby. The largest is Google.
