Houses and flats in King's Cross
King’s Cross is an area that has changed dramatically over the last few years with the development of the old railway lands. With careful planning an extraordinary new part of London has been taking shape with 50 new buildings, 2000 new homes, 20 new streets, 10 new public squares, 67 acres all accessible to the 45,000 people who live, work and study in the area.
The King’s Cross development area has a new postcode, N1C. Knight Frank has been involved with the residential development throughout N1C and has been instructed in the selling and renting of the first three residential buildings ArtHouse, The Plimsoll Building and Tapestry Apartments.
King’s Cross has been redeveloped to house luxurious apartments that have the artistic touch. All three residential buildings have been designed to be economically and environmentally friendly but also in keeping with the style of the neighbourhood and its urban culture.
The first phase ArtHouse has proven to be a popular choice with tenants and purchasers due to its fantastic location next to Granary square. There is a demand to not only live in King’s Cross due to the phenomenal transport links but to buy into the exciting concept being developed by King’s Cross Estate.
With a mixture of modern, period, houses and flats King’s Cross appeals to both domestic and International markets. New build apartments for sale and rent are in high demand and command a premium due to the additional amenities such as gyms, resident’s lounges and 24 hour concierge.
One and two bedroom apartments are typically the most sought after, they appeal to corporates and young professionals and this is certainly the case in King’s Cross. With the arrival of companies such as Google, Louis Vuitton and Guardian Media Group this demand is only expected to grow. The University of the Arts (UAL) is based in Granary Square so there is a high demand from both domestic and international students looking for flats that are within a close proximity to campus.
