Regent Quarter is situated in the heart of King’s Cross, immediately to the east of King’s Cross Station, in the London Borough of Islington. It is located on the junction of York Way and Pentonville Road and currently consists of 12 office buildings and around 20 retail and leisure units.

Regent Quarter forms a vital part of King’s Cross but has become disconnected without benefiting from the regeneration of the area and the nearby 67-acre King’s Cross development.

The characterful inherent architectural richness, unique public realm condition and prime central location are real assets for the Quarter, yet the site is currently under exploited and disconnected, surrounded by major traffic thoroughfares.

We have provided more details on the history of the site and how it sits within the wider context of the area within the consultation materials.


The overall vision for Regent Quarter is to:


  • Create a revitalised Quarter for visitors, workers and residents.
  • Celebrate and improve a unique heritage asset.
  • Establish routes through a series of vibrant interconnected yards and passages.
  • Reactivate and energise the existing courtyards and public realm.
  • Provide a variety of modern flexible workspace to attract and secure creative industries and to support new start-ups.
  • Create amenity and improvements for the local community.
  • Ensure a long-terms and sustainable future for Regent Quarter.

How have we responded to your feedback?

In our consultation with you so far, we have noted that you had concerns over several key issues, including height, local impact, security, and daylight & sunlight.

We have constantly been updating our designs following feedback from the London Borough of Islington and local residents, and some of our key commitments following these discussions are listed below:                

  • Reducing the height of Jahn Court from our earliest design proposals by 2.4 metres.
  • Toren Security Agency have been appointed to help ensure that these proposals keep residents safe and secure.
    • Improvements will be made to the proposed cycle spaces throughout the site to reduce the impact on residents and provide them with more secure parking.
    • A regular resident liaison group will be formed, to help us manage the construction and the ongoing maintenance of internal courtyards and spaces.

    We have committed to the appointment of a contractor who is signed up to the Considerate Constructors Scheme.

    We have also held one-to-one meetings with residents, and will continue to evolve our designs as we hear more from you.
