KING'S CROSS, LONDON
King’s Cross is one of the largest and most successful redevelopments in London. Over the past 20 years, what was an underused industrial site has been transformed and rejuvenated with new streets, squares and parks, homes, shops, offices, galleries, bars, restaurants, schools, and even a university. It’s a vibrant new neighbourhood with a brand new postcode – N1C – and is widely acclaimed as Europe’s leading urban regeneration project of the past two decades. It is also one of the most sustainable major developments in the UK – independently certified as carbon neutral in 2021.
Brent Cross Town, London
We are creating a new £8bn neighbourhood in northwest London – a visionary development designed around the core values of social connectivity, sustainability, health and wellness. This will be a net zero carbon town where all can flourish. The new neighbourhood will offer 6,700 homes, workspace for 25,000 people, a new high street with restaurants, shops and leisure as well as schools and community facilities. With 50 acres of parks, playing fields and state-of-the-art sporting facilities, Brent Cross Town will be known across London as a destination for sport and play.
Tottenham Hale, London
We are giving this vibrant and creative north London neighbourhood a new core, a place we now call Heart of Hale. In an area dominated by road and rail infrastructure, Heart of Hale puts people at the fore – creating a connected environment with independent restaurants, shops and cafés, flexible workspaces and a new health centre for the local community. We’ve partnered with the London Borough of Haringey to build 1,030 new homes and create the connections, activity and vibrancy that will knit the area together and celebrate the amazing open spaces nearby.
