Kings Cross and Google – A Match Made in Silicon Heaven

Google’s proposed headquartered at Kings Cross has been much talked about. A £650 million scheme providing 1 million square feet of offices and retail, forming part of the wider 67 acre Kings Cross development scheme.

Subject to approval, works will begin in early 2014 with completion duue late 2016 through to 2017. The new headquarters will house all of Google’s london based staff under one roof.

Combined with the new St Pancras International and Kings Cross Stations and the local vision to create potential for growth and employment, the Kings Cross area is rapidly transfroming. So much so that Google have chosen Kings Cross to embark on their first purpose built headquarters anywhere in the world.

Dan Cobley, Google UK’s Managing Director said, “building our new headquarters in King’s Cross is good for Google and good for London. We’re committed to the UK and to the regeneration of this historical area.

The 1m (gross) sq ft building will provide 725,000 sq ft of offices and around 50,000 sq ft of retail at ground level.
