LSE students who stayed at Urbanest student accommodation at Tower Bridge, along with the new intake at The London School of Economics will be able to live at the brand new Urbanest Kings Cross. This is part of a new development which will be one of the largest new developments in London, including the new Central St Martin’s College (see the video tour of the new CSM campus here: http://www.csm.arts.ac.uk/contact/kings-cross-tour/), the new HQ for Google in the UK (see this article:http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-21074951), as well as a ton of places for eating out.
There is a huge amount to read about on this area and regeneration – the clearest indication of what is going on is here: http://www.kingscross.co.uk/
It’ll be interesting to see the area develop as the winter finally ends (!) Relaxing on Regents Canal or walking down the tow path towards Camden – likely to become one of the most vibrant areas in London’s zone 1.
It will be an important area for students; there is not only the new Central St Martins College (4-5000 student campus), it is a few minutes to Bloomsbury and several of the major London University campuses, the new Centre for Ismaili Studies will be opening a residence at Kings Cross and there will also be the new urbanest property, a part of which has been reserved for LSE students, (see here: http://www2.lse.ac.uk/lifeAtLSE/accommodation/forStudents/residentialHalls/KingsCross/kingsCrossHomepage.aspx)
