Kings Cross' Fresh Retail Offering

The Kings Cross Coal Drops Yard redevelopment is in full swing. The 3 Billion pound re-generation area is now opening retail spaces in one of the busiest, heaviest footfall locations in London. With big brands such as Sweaty Betty, Jigsaw, Nike, Carhartt and & Other Stories moving in, we went back to the Coal Drops Yard development to take a look at what's new in London's newest, happening hot spot.  

With a university campus, new housing, national and international transport links and abundant retail and hospitality spaces all in one place, it's easy to see why brands are opening experimental and experiential stores.
