Business in Kings Cross
During the Victorian period, King's Cross was an important industrial hub. By the end of the twentieth century, it became dominated by railway lands and disused buildings and warehouses. The arrival of Eurostar rail service to mainland Europe starting in the 1990s and the redevelopment of St Pancras International in 2007 have helped transform King's Cross. The area is also home to King's Cross station, a major terminus for rail services between England and the North of England. A major regeneration effort in the area is King's Cross Central, a mixed-use development on a 67-acre site north of King's Cross and St Pancras.
The former railway lands are being transformed into residential, commercial and leisure spaces using a combination of new and restored buildings. New parks, squares and streets are also being laid out. The Central Saint Martins campus of the University of the Arts London is one of the new quarter's first occupants in 2011. New restaurants and shops have also opened and the Great Northern Hotel was refurbished.

Universal Music and Louis Vuitton are also relocating to King's Gross. In total, 3.4 million square feet in 19 new and refurbished buildings will provide new workspaces for businesses in various sectors.
Other office buildings in King's Cross include Kings Place. In addition to seven floors of Grade A office accommodation, the development includes music and visual arts venues. Located at 90 York Way, Kings Place serves as the London offices for global IT and management consultancy CGI. Serviced offices are available at 344-354 Gray's Inn Road, a restored building with meeting rooms and furnished spaces.

About King's Cross
The area now known as King's Cross was once farmland until it was developed following the construction of New Road in 1765, which was renamed Euston Road. The construction of the Regents Canal in 1820 industrialised the area. Centred on a bustling train station of the same name, King's Cross hosts an array of theatres and restaurants that are increasingly attracting crowds to the area. It was traditional known for its seedy reputation and was once a red light district, although regeneration efforts starting in the 1990s have helped transform King's Cross.
The area is named after King's Cross station, one of the major gateways to London from the North of England and Scotland. Completed in 1852, the high-speed services to the North East, Scotland and Yorkshire arrive and depart from the grand terminus. King's Cross is also known as the station where Harry Potter and other Hogwart's students boarded a train from platform 9 3/4. Next door is St Pancras International, which re-opened in 2007 as a terminus for the Eurostar service to continental Europe. The elegant Victorian style building first opened in 1868. King's Cross Central is also helping to update the area as former railway lands north of King's Cross and St Pancras stations are redeveloped.
