King’s Cross: a commercial guide for businesses looking for office space in London
Ian Kitchener:

King’s Cross is a northern part of central London, built around King’s Cross and St. Pancras stations. Communications have always been really keen to the area, starting with canals, but then tubes connecting to all over central London, and rail links to major industrial centers including places like Cambridge and Edinburgh and Hull and Leeds. The area used to be full of deprivation, it was a bit of an industrial wasteland, but the catalyst that really got King’s Cross going was when they decided to connect St. Pancras through Eurostar to the Channel Tunnel, and that was a real game changer. Since then the area has become one of the biggest urban regeneration schemes in Europe and there are all kinds of mixed developments introducing, not only offices and residential and retail and cinemas, but also schools. A real area with a real postcode, which from memory is N1C.

The kind of offices people look for there would be some big corporate buildings, but also buildings with a strong design input. There have been some really interesting buildings built in King’s Cross. There’s the Francis Crick Institute, King’s Place, which is home to the Guardian newspapers in central London. People like Google, the French advertising conglomerate, Havas, have made King’s Cross their home and had a building actually built for them.

My favorite spot in King’s Cross is probably the Eurostar arrivals in St. Pancras. I think it’s a really inspiring way to enter into the UK.

About King’s Cross

Office Space in King's Cross

King’s Cross is the inner city area north of Holborn, built around King’s Cross and St Pancras International stations. Historically  a major transport hub connecting the national railway network with the Grand Union Canal.

The area houses some iconic architecture. King’s Cross station itself was designed by Lewis Cubitt, who built the station just in time for the Great Exhibition.

Alas, by the latter part of the 20th Century, with the long decline of established, yet dated industries, the area to the north of the station had become a derelict wasteland. And the area immediately around the station was particularly shabby and acquired a reputation for vice!

However, over the past 2 decades the area has been dramatically transformed as demand for office space in central London has grown unabated.  This transformation has been facilitated by simplified land ownership, the continued domestic transport importance of King’s Cross and the development of St Pancras International to provide direct, high speed Eurostar trains to and from Europe. And of course the refurbishment and re-opening of iconic Great Northern Hotel. It’s now one of  London’s best connected commercial areas, making it highly sought after by businesses – large and small alike.

Today King’s Cross is one of the largest redevelopment sites in Europe providing new homes, offices, shops, schools, restaurants and leisure facilities to create a new area, which even has its own new postcode – London N1C.

Large amounts of high quality leased office space in King’s Cross have been developed – both new and refurbished – to meet the demand of large and small office occupiers. Huge brands such as Google and the media multinational Havas have had state of the art offices in King’s Cross built to meet their specific requirements.

Companies such as The Office Group & other flexible office providers are catering for start ups and other smaller businesses. These centres are making serviced offices, meeting rooms &  coworking offices available to rent in King’s Cross to meet sharply increased demand for flexibility.
