Despite being located next to some of the best transport connections in London, the area of Kings Cross has been waiting for a long overdue redevelopment. The Regents Quarter project was set to regenerate the rundown area around the station. And finally, after 150 years of industrial use, King’s Cross is now being transformed and becoming a desirable place to live and work.
What was an underused industrial wasteland just a decade ago, has now become a completely ‘new’ part of London with its own postcode. Through creative refurbishment of the nineteenth-century buildings and new contemporary architecture, the new urban quarter shows an outstanding commercial success.
