The 67 acre development at King’s Cross is one of the largest regeneration projects in Europe. This new neighbourhood is built on a vision of inclusivity, drawing on the area’s rich and diverse heritage and strong sense of community.
Close to 2,000 new homes are being developed here. Everything from four-bed family homes, to student studios and supported living for the elderly. In time, some 7,000 people will live in this new neighbourhood, reflecting the spectrum of London life.
A significant proportion of the homes at King’s Cross are affordable. Our affordable housing partner is One Housing Group and homes are already available in Rubicon Court, Saxon Court, Roseberry Mansions and ArtHouse with further apartments soon to be available in Tapestry. Affordable rented homes are available in The Plimsoll Building via the Dolphin Square Foundation. Find out more about affordable housing at King’s Cross.
While the homes at King’s Cross are of different types and tenures, something they all have in common is intelligent design and the highest quality materials and finishes.
The residential buildings are designed by some of the UK’s leading architectural practices and no two are the same. Everything is carefully considered to make the most of the views, space and aspect. Equal care and attention-to-detail goes into the interiors and finishes as well as the terraces and gardens.
Parking for cars and bicycles, storage, waste and recycling have all been meticulously thought through. Where ever possible, apartments are designed as “lifetime homes”, allowing people to adapt their homes when circumstances change.
Each apartment is connected to a low-carbon district heating system and the buildings are aligned to make the most of solar orientation – comfortably cool in the summer and warm in the winter. So far, we are achieving Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes.
The homes at King’s Cross are set within a framework of lively streets and squares and beautiful new parks and gardens. The old sits along side the new here, with award-winning modern architecture rubbing shoulders with restored Victorian structures. This gives the neighbourhood a unique character and sense of place.
With a university campus at its core, world class transport on the doorstep, a whole host of galleries, museums and cultural venues as well as a burgeoning food and drink scene, King’s Cross is fast becoming one of London’s most desirable new neighbourhoods.
