Once a desolate thoroughfare littered with empty warehouses, Kings Cross has been transformed over recent years into a pedestrianised oasis – a melting pot of industry, academia, and culture with large open spaces in which to eat, drink, shop, and unwind. Little wonder then that this urban playground with fantastic travel links has become one of the most popular locations for office space in London, home to the likes of Google and Facebook, Louis Vuitton and Debenhams, and The British Library and The Francis Crick Institute.
Possibly the hottest tech neighbourhood in London, costs of office space here can differ dramatically between the poor and good quality office space. With new developments popping up all over the area and with continued occupation by names like Facebook and Google, office space prices here continue to increase.
