King's Cross Area Guide
London’s biggest transformation story. In just six years, King’s Cross has transformed from a shabby and grim area to become the hottest property ticket in town. The numbers say it all - when the project is completed there will be a total of 2,000 new homes, 67 acres of derelict land reclaimed, 50 new buildings, 20 new streets, 20 heritage buildings restored, 10 new public squares, 26 acres of open space and even a new postcode, N1C. This newly emerging neighbourhood has risen phoenix-like from what was the old railway badlands behind King’s Cross station. Now it is a vibrant district, energised by the creative students of the Royal College of Fashion, making the area lively and stylish.
