Creating desirable places to live, work and visit through successful place-making

LCR’s development philosophy is centred on place-making. We maximise value by pursuing medium to long-term development projects, taking them through each stage of the planning process from strategy to implementation.

LCR often leads on scheme development, land pooling, land assembly, development partner selection and early stage implementation such as remediation and enabling necessary infrastructure.

This comprehensive approach enables us to invest in schemes which deliver homes, jobs and economic growth – ultimately realising value for the taxpayer. We have a successful track record in creating new places and must see destinations; which is exactly what we’ve achieved at King’s Cross.

The King’s Cross partnership has created one of Europe’s most exciting places to live, work, and visit – a real must see destination. We have made massive progress on the development and LCR has been at the very heart of this transformation
for almost 20 years, providing vision and early strategic leadership and demonstrating great commitment for the regeneration of what has become a new part of London.

King’s Cross, London Boroughs of Camden and Islington

King’s Cross is a critically acclaimed 67-acre, eight million sq ft central London development – the largest urban regeneration project in Europe. 

LCR owned the land along with Exel and in 2000 they selected Argent as their development partner. During the planning phase of the development up to 2007, LCR separately transformed St Pancras Station as part of the HS1 programme.

By the time LCR sold its stake in King’s Cross in January 2016, a vibrant new quarter of offices, homes, community facilities, schools, a world-renowned university and a host of shops, restaurants, bars and cultural venues had been built.

Once complete, King’s Cross will benefit from 2,000 homes, circa 3.4 million sq ft of office space and 500,000 sq ft of retail and leisure space. 40% of the development will be public space, accessible to the estimated 45,000 people who will live, work, study or visit there.
