The area is being transformed with new homes, shops, offices, galleries, bars, restaurants, schools, as well as a university.

King’s Cross (KCCLP) reviews

“I love living in the Plimsoll building the area is fantastic the views are spectacular and it’s a pleasure to be a resident there. The neighbours are wonderful and the people that live in the building are very welcoming.” – Plimsol, verified resident of the Plimsoll Building

“I love the building and King’s Cross in general. The amenities in the building are top notch. Camden is one of the coolest areas of London at the moment. Loads of restaurants shops etc. The construction is a bit of a nightmare and often poorly communicated but overall I love living here.” – Sarah, verified resident of Gasholders London

A lovely place to live in Zone 1

Review Date Mar 2020

Designed by the architects Maccreanor Lavington along with adjacent Fenman House and Roseberry Mansions, this building is in an amazing Kings Cross Location near Coal Drops Yard and a huge Waitrose with a weekend Canopy Market. I love that the flats have great views, for the most part and really decent sized rooms.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Kings Cross is a great and buzzing area which has a great number of amenities and transport connections.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

I wish I’d known that neighbouring developments would take so long to get going!

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

A larger kitchen would be great – I’d love a breakfast bar.

Great location and concierge

Building management (great concierge team) – In comparison to the other builds (supported by experience of having also lived in Fenman house) I find the concierge at Arthouse is an enormous positive, they are all incredibly helpful, welcoming, and have good chat. It was a strong draw back after having moved away briefly.

Property design – Some apartments have excellent views but on the downside some don’t have air conditioning which can get difficult in the summer with floor to ceiling glass windows that tend to retain heat.

Facilities – have on occasion experienced difficulties with the dishwashers. No other issues in facilities.

Property management – I believe this property is managed by JLL (they are the landlord middleman) – poor experience with them so far (has been a few months) with lack of communication and having to constantly chase. Used Knight Frank as agent in renting this apartment and they have been good.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Great location for all purposes – great to live in an area with lots of small businesses and creative events that entice people to return. There is always something going on! I can have friends/family over for every occasion (coffee/lunch/drinks/dinner) and one thing I find incredibly unique is there is a vast space to sit without having to buy anything which is a strong positive. One development point would be to review the shops located in the archways (below the Samsung shop) – I’m not sure they draw in as many people as they could, it’s a beautiful spot and I feel the shops just need a little tweaking.
Overall however my partner and I really do love this area and look forward to seeing it continue to grow!

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Pro – the mornings are quiet and a strong positive which I didn’t realise before we had moved to the area. There is also a lot going on in terms of events.

Cons – some apartments in arthouse do not have air conditioning and if you live off York way it can get very noisy!

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Good landlord but they use JLL to manage the property who I would avoid in the future.

A really nice place to live

Great area although a lot of it is still under development. A cinema is on the corner of the building (not related to the building) so watching movies is fairly easy and quick. Fairly noisy in the mornings due to a lot of construction (so keep the windows closed or you’re getting up early). Water takes aminute to heat up, but honestly that’s it. Bonus round: the concierge handles all post and delivery drivers, so rather than leaving the building to grab deliveroo, it just appears at your door.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Like: pretty area, Waitrose a close walk away for groceries.
Dislike: a hefty amount of construction.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

WI-FI! Setting up Wi-fi was a pain, just about no company will do it (we got in a month long fight with talk-talk about their inability to do it for us). The solution is fairly easy however, just use the routers that are already plugged in here and go to ‘See the Light.’ It’s the pre-setup company in this building. 1 phone call and you should be fine.

Nice place to live

Very nice apartment, pristine conditions and very well furnished. It is equipped with state of the art appliances and the building is very well taken care of. The down side is that it is a long walk to the nearest underground station, which adds substantial travel time to any destination. You have restaurants and lots of cafes, parks, a Waitrose all within 5 minutes walking. The area is very lively and full of activities.

Underground station is far

Great area & building

Very nice building with a high standard of fixtures and fittings. Location maybe a bit further from the station that ideal but nice to be overlookig the park rather than on a busy road.
Biggest negative is the service charge which is high given the only “facility” is a 12 hour concierge. Expensive to live here compared to other comparable new builds in London and Argent should investigate other residential managers. Area is superior to most other parts of London though.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Fantastic area with lots of restaurants and bars. Nice that Coal Drops Yard haz lots of non chain shops fo give an individual feel. Argent have done an excellent job in the estate as a whole.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Area is booming and with a big Google building under construction and Facebook moving in shows no signs of slowing down.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

Nothing to change with flat or building, just a more reasonable service charge.
