King's Cross

an extraordinary piece of London is taking shape

How does it work?

  • King's Cross - How does it work?

The estate is owned by the King’s Cross Central Limited Partnership. The public areas and many of the buildings will be managed and maintained by a specialist on-site team – King’s Cross Estate Services. This is an enthusiastic, professional and dedicated team who will respond quickly to any issues or concerns. This team will also be involved in organizing and managing events and activities.

The team will keep King’s Cross clean, well-maintained, well-lit and secure. One of the group’s main priorities is to establish a relationship with the people who live, own property and run businesses here. The team will also work with the wider King’s Cross community including the local councils and transport authorities at the different stations.

That means you’re never far from a lively square or street scene. But there are also plenty of restful green spaces. So whether you’re looking for a quiet moment in the park, a performance in the square or a playground for the kids, you’ll find it at King’s Cross.
