London’s Vibrant Quarter Expands: King’s Cross Welcomes Build-to-Rent Apartments

Developer Related Argent has introduced the newest rental homes in the King’s Cross area, marking the final phase of a 20-year transformation of 67 acres of formerly derelict railway lands into a vibrant neighborhood in London.


Named Author King’s Cross, the scheme offers 182 apartments in three build-to-rent (BtR) blocks located on York Way, with prices starting from £3,045 per month.

The move-in date for tenants is set for later this summer.

Architecturally Diverse Development

Surrounding a beautifully landscaped courtyard, the trio of buildings in Author King’s Cross varies in height, ranging from three to 16 storeys.

Each block has been designed by a different architectural practice, with David Morley Architects, Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, and Haptic all contributing their unique perspectives to the development.


Olayan, the project’s investors, are collaborating in the delivery of this exceptional project.

Luxurious Amenities for Residents

The furnished apartments in Author King’s Cross consist of one, two, and three bedrooms, and residents will have access to a wide array of shared amenities.

These include a fitness centre, lounges, workspaces, a creche, a private dining room, a coffee and wine bar, and a garden kitchen that opens onto the courtyard.

Additionally, a 24-hour onsite team, led by a general manager, will be available to assist residents with services like laundry, cleaning, and receiving deliveries.

Commitment to Enhancing the Rental Experience

Tom Goodall, the managing director of Related Argent, expressed his excitement about the launch of Author King’s Cross.


After spearheading the redevelopment and rejuvenation of the area over the last two decades, the developer is now proud to offer these rental homes.

Moreover, Related Argent aims to revolutionize the rental experience in the UK for the better and has plans to expand their BtR homes across various large and smaller sites throughout the country.

Ambitious Plans for the Future

Related Argent envisions delivering a total of 3,000 BtR homes in London, not limited to King’s Cross but also including Tottenham Hale and Brent Cross Town.

These ambitious plans demonstrate their dedication to creating more high-quality rental housing options in key areas of the city, catering to the diverse needs of residents and contributing to the ongoing transformation of London’s housing landscape.
