Rubicon Court

The first homes at King’s Cross were completed summer 2012, and residents arrived in early July 2012.

Of the 117 affordable homes in Rubicon Court, 78 are social rented apartments, 15 are supported housing apartments, and 24 are available as shared ownership homes.

Designed by PRP Architects, the apartments are arranged in small clusters, allowing communities to develop on each floor. Almost a third of the homes are suitable for families – with three or four bedrooms. More than half have generous balconies and many have stunning views across the city.

All are designed to meet Lifetime Homes standards.

Funding support for Rubicon Court was provided by the Homes and Communities Agency.

Saxon Court and Roseberry Mansions

Designed by Maccreanor Lavington Architects, Saxon Court and Roseberry Mansions are part of the second residential scheme to be delivered at King’s Cross. 143 affordable homes are now available.

Saxon Court provides 63 social rented apartments and 40 affordable shared ownership homes.

Roseberry Mansions provides 40 apartments designed for the active elderly. These homes allow older people to live independently while also having access to the care and support services which they may need over time.

One Housing Group owns and manages the homes for sale and rent in both Rubicon Court, Saxon Court and Roseberry Mansions.
