Who’s developing King’s Cross?



King’s Cross is being developed by the King’s Cross Central Limited Partnership

The partnership is the single land owner at King’s Cross, making development and delivery easier. Many of the people working on the project have been involved from the beginning. This brings an unusual level of continuity and commitment. The partnership brings together two groups:

Argent King’s Cross Limited Partnership

Backed by Argent, one of the UK’s best respected property developers, and Hermes Investment Management on behalf of the BT Pension Scheme. Argent is the asset manager for King’s Cross. Argent has developed Brindleyplace in Birmingham and Manchester’s Piccadilly.


Australia’s biggest superannuation/pension funds run only to profit members. The Fund manages more than $AUD91 billion of members’ assets on behalf of more than two million members from across 210,000 businesses. One in 10 working Australians is a member of AustralianSuper. King’s Cross is its first direct London investment and only its second in the UK.
