Area Guide by Estate Agents in King's Cross N1

King's Cross N1C Area Guide: Even the most optimistic of regeneration champions could not have predicted the success of the transformation of King's Cross as twenty years ago, the district wrapping around the train station, was blighted by coal yards, railway sheds and disused freight depots.  

An entire new district costing £5 billion has been built and given a new postcode, N1C with 2,000 new homes, 20 new streets, 10 new public spaces, 20  restored heritage buildings, oceans of new offices including a headquarters for Google, retail space and restaurants.  The new campus for Central Saint Martins art and design college is an architecturally stunning 21st-century "warehouse of ideas" for 5,000 students.  Together, all this innovation brings diversity, vitality, commerce and creative kudos to a part of London many had written off.  It
 is a rapidly-developing area in London, known for its rich history and exciting new developments.

One of the biggest draws of Kings Cross is its location in the heart of central London, with easy access to the West End, the City, and the rest of the capital via excellent public transport. It's also home to Kings Cross St Pancras Station, one of the busiest transport hubs in London, connecting six London underground lines and the Eurostar and other national rail services. 

Situated north of Fitzrovia and south of Camden, Kings Cross is just on the edge of North London, but still benefits from being a short distance into the centre as well as an easy stroll to the glorious expanse of Regent's ParkIn recent years, Kings Cross has seen a resurgence in its local culture, with an influx of independent shops, restaurants, and bars. Several historic landmarks, including the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel and the British Library, are worth visiting for their architectural and historical significance.

The property market in Kings Cross is diverse, with something to suit every taste and budget. Many of the properties in the area have been beautifully renovated and feature original period features such as high ceilings, sash windows, and fireplaces. There is a mix of modern apartment buildings, converted warehouses, and Victorian terraces.

Kings Cross is home to luxury developments such as 
Coal Drops Yard and King's Cross Central. Coal Drops Yard is a trendy and vibrant new development which is a unique blend of old and new, with a focus on creating a lively and bustling atmosphere. It was originally used for the storage and sorting of coal in the 19th century and the development has been built around the existing Victorian architecture, preserving the historic character of the area while also adding a contemporary twist. It features a variety of shops, restaurants, and bars, as well as open spaces for visitors to enjoy and a number of public spaces, including the Granary Square, which boasts fountains, playgrounds, and a variety of seating areas. The development also features events throughout the year, such as pop-up markets, festivals, and live performances, making it a lively and exciting place to visit.

From post-industrial to artistically-inclined, a new quarter with landmark homes, designer shops and a stylish buzz has risen from the sooty dust of derelict warehouses. It has become a chic, desirable modern hub, complete with convenient national and international transport connections.  It’s a place to live, work and play; city workers wanting a short commute, students from Central St Martins and UCL, French workers seeking an easy route back to Paris and North London media professionals all flock here.
