Feeling privileged to live in Kings Cross

Plimsoll is well designed and a joy to live in. We also benefit from Argent being a very responsible and far-sighted developer, who is crucially thinking of the wider picture for the developments role in the community.
Facilities are good , and life is made to be very easy for residents here with 24hr concierge , good security in the building and the surrounding development and plenty of parking availability for guests and residents.

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

Kings Cross is an incredible place to live , and N1C is a real oasis . It’s surprisingly quiet as we are quite a way from any main roads in Plimsoll, and we have the great landscaping , shops, restaurants, facilities that are here in the Redevelopment zone , as well as views over the Canal.

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

Surprised how amazingly easy it is to get everywhere – can walk to the city or west end in 20-30mins , tube there in 5mins – pretty much everywhere in London is accessible in 30 mins or less- and of course when we can, go to Paris ( or even Nottingham to watch my football team ) in a couple of hours .

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

There is still considerable building work going on in the redevelopment zone ( including the new theatre that we are excited about) , but this was always known about when we purchased so we have no complaints.

The building is managed impeccably. There is an efficient concierge service. The car park is easy to access as is the garbage system. I tend to enter mainly through the car park entrance as that is more convenient so I don’t get the full benefits of the beautifully designed front entrance. The common parts are always kept clean.

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

This is a unique part of London which has been enhanced by thoughtful development. I love living here, just do t like it that the secret is out!!

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

Once you live here it’s even better than you imagined

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

The building management have always been very helpful

You can tell that design and amenities were front of mind for the builders of Plimsoll Building – it feels more like a high-end hotel than an apartment block, which isn’t a bad thing! To name a few of the facilities, there’s a gym with most equipment you could need, a bike storage room, and an observatory with a terrace. The 24/7 concierge support is also fantastic in terms of package delivery and overall safety, and the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful.

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

Love being a few steps away from Coal Drops Yard & Granary Square, and a ~12 minute walk to King’s Cross tube stations.

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

The walls are quite thick – we rarely hear noise from our neighbours through the walls.

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

The landlord has been slow to fix maintenance issues, but that’s not the fault of Plimsoll.

I absolutely love the Plimsoll Building – it’s light, beautifully designed, and modern, with facilities like a gym, a winter garden with 12th floor balcony, a reading room with piano, a conference room, and more.

Apartments are well spaced and specced, and the fittings are all top class: down-lighting that’s stunning (and nourishes plants), built in dishwashers, and heated mirrors in the bathroom so they don’t steam up. The designers thought of every little detail.

The building is wonderfully maintained and is stocked with friendly concierge staff. I love it here.

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

Being so close to Coal Drops Yard the area has a great selection of upmarket shops and many great restaurants. With the regents canal so close there are lots of opportunities to go for runs, or walks, and there are a few small parks (Gasholders Park is great) for walking dogs or picnicking in.

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

The council tax is on the higher end of the scale (£150-200/month for a 1 bedroom), so one definitely pays for the nice area we’re situated in.

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

We’ve really struggled to get our landlord (actually the managing agency) to fix our dishwasher. It’s been 6 months of emails, and nothings actually been done.

The new developments at kings cross have come up in the recent few years showing great attention to detail and finishing. Ive been fortunate to live here for the last year after experiencing living in various neighborhoods around London and this has been the most enjoyable.

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

The only downside to living in a newly build development would be the weak internet service provided and the fact that none of the major companies supply here

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

If I had known the area would be booming as it is, I would have made more investments in the areA

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.

This is a great place to live around. I been living here around 3 years. It is very close to my university CSM. It in quite central of London. So it is close to go anywhere. The area has been developed very nice. There are parks around and shopping centre.

I Like how this place it in the Zone 1. It is very convenient

I love living in central London but also being so close to the Kanow with the beautiful walks

Quite a quiet neighbourhood at the moment. Lots of construction sites around at the moment so one does need to be careful when walking around, especially when it’s very windy, which is one of the problems of living here. Very convenient Waitrose close by, as well as Coal drops Yard which should start having pretty good shops in the near future.

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

+: Convenient Waitrose, good restaurants close by like Kimchee
+: Very close to the tube
-: High wind speeds

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

High wind speeds can sometimes be a problem, but actually it was mostly as expected
