Letting Agents in Kings Cross London N1
Historically a commercial area, Kings Cross is moving up in the world as a residential area.
Of course, this has always been a busy place. The station - stations, as St Pancras looms over everything here - dominate the geography, as does the Regents Canal. Transport, of goods and people, has always been its watchword. This has brought both positive and negative things. Negatively the Kings Cross area is busy and chequered, but these are fast becoming things of the past as redevelopment moves apace.
The redevelopment of Kings Cross has several aspects. One of course is the regeneration of the station itself as Kings Cross plays host to the Eurostar. This has added to an already impressive list of facilities. The area was already stocked with shops and bars, as well as a huge array of restaurants catering to every taste - but the new International station is a wonderful place to walk and meet people whether you're traveling or not, with its high ceilings and glass walls making it feel enclosed, but open, all at the same time.
The station's redevelopment is tied in with a huge modernization and expansion all around. The station area has long been a place of flats - flats above shops, blocks, conversions - and this is now being pushed into the modern era. There are lovely developments of flats hugging the now-fashionable Regents Canal area. More and more this is not the preserve of the boring commercial property, it's now a place where the media and creative circles mix with the loyal locals to make an area of real colour that also has everything the modern home owner could look for.
The King's Cross Central project, which is spearheading the growth of cultural venues, of loft-style flats, eating and drinking in the area around the station, is still pushing ahead. As it does, the flat-dominated nature of Kings Cross is changing, moving upmarket and into the 21st Century; the apartments that throng its streets and the canal are now sought after by those in the know, and this is now not just a place for transport, but a destination for those looking to live and have fun.

That idea may be hard to sustain amid the skyscrapers of the city or Canary Wharf, or the endless Portland Stone white mews of the west end. But Balham may just have a hint of this vibe.
