Electronic liquidity provider XTX Markets today announced plans to move its London HQ to the heart of the 67-acre King’s Cross estate.
The King’s Cross Central Limited Partnership (KCCLP) has entered into an Agreement for Lease with electronic market maker XTX Markets to lease 28,208 sq ft – three floors – in the office building R7, designed by Duggan Morris and located on Handyside Street, adjacent to the University of the Arts London.
The building is now fully let ahead of practical completion in July 2017, with only ground floor studio space and restaurant space remaining.
Speaking about the partnership with XTX Markets, Will Colthorpe, Partner at Argent, said:
“XTX Market’s commitment to the site marks another milestone for King’s Cross. R7 is now substantially let well ahead of PC. It demonstrates the broad appeal of the site, which is continuing to draw a diverse range of tenants away from core West End locations.”
Barney Lewis, Partner at Allsop, commented:
“We are delighted to secure such high quality space in one of Central London’s most exciting and forward-thinking developments. R7 was selected as the building that best suits XTX’s needs and will allow them to continue to grow and develop alongside tenants from a diverse range of industries.’’
Allsop acted for XTX Markets; Savills and Cushman & Wakefield acted for KCCLP.
The next office space to be unveiled at King’s Cross, N1C, is in two new buildings in the “T-Zone” on Canal Reach: T2, with 235,888 sq ft of offices and T3, with 170,310 sq ft.
