For many years King’s Cross has been tainted with a reputation for being a scruffy and unappealing part of London, and has therefore been left out of the running for the most desirable London office locations.
However, this is no longer the case! King’s Cross has shaken off its ugly ducking reputation and is now one of the hottest office locations in London. Here’s 5 reasons why you should consider the area for your next office move:
1. It’s got pretty trendy…
In the last couple of years King’s Cross has had the ultimate glow up, which hasn’t gone unnoticed by the fashionable types. The area has become hotbed for companies in the arts and fashion industry. It's also home to Central Saint Martins fashion college - you’ll find hoards of art students in Granary Square.
2. Location, location, location…
A huge pull factor for having serviced offices in King’s Cross is the unbeatable location. The area is exceptionally well-connected (King’s Cross St Pancras tube station is connected by more lines than any other) meaning that it’s easy to get to for all employees, regardless of where they live.
King’s Cross is also ideally located close to the West End, and just 10 minutes from Bank, making the area incredibly versatile and well-suited to a wide range of industries.
3. It’s had a real facelift...
King’s Cross is one of the largest and most interesting redevelopment projects in London in recent years. Disused warehouses and run-down shops have been completely transformed into contemporary workspaces, stylish eateries and vibrant shopping outlets. King’s Cross is the place to be if you’re looking for large, modern and chic offices. Did someone say warehouse conversion?
The bulk of regeneration work is scheduled for completion in 2020 and prices are expected to rise then, so there hasn’t been a better time to move to serviced offices in King’s Cross!
4. You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to eating & drinking…
The regeneration of King’s Cross has brought with it a wealth of sleek restaurants and bars, transforming the area into a foodie paradise. Granary Square boasts a reputation for being an ever-so-trendy location for eating and drinking with avocado on toast and Aperol Spritzes in abundance.
Popular spots include upscale Indian restaurant Dishoom, Eat Shop Do, Caravan and locals’ favourite Frederik’s.
5. There’s heaps to do outside of work…
In King’s Cross there’s a vast array of interesting places to explore meaning you’re likely to want to spend time in the area outside of your 9 to 5. Besides the trendy bars and cafes in the area, other highlights include The British Library, which has the largest collection of books in the world and The Scala, a former Art-Deco cinema now reinvented as a popular live music venue.
The Grand Union Canal has also been extensively restored so you can enjoy scenic walks and attractive green spaces right on the doorstep!
