Argent Related has started construction on its first UK Build-to-Rent (BtR) development at the Triangle Site on York Way, King’s Cross.

The new development is set to complete in 2023 and will feature 218 rental homes across three buildings.

Argent Related's pipeline is close to 8,000 homes including c.3,000 BtR homes which form part of its mixed-used developments: Triangle Site in King’s Cross, Brent Cross Town and Tottenham Hale.

The buildings will comprise 1, 2 and 3-bedroom homes created by a leading group of architects and interior designers including David Morley Architects, Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, Haptic, Project Orange and Conran and Partners.

The scheme will include world-class service and a mix of amenities including a residential fitness centre, screening room, dining area, retail and a crèche along with the benefit of King’s Cross’ retail, restaurants, leisure and public spaces all located nearby.

Ken Wong, COO of Related Companies commented: “When we started our new company in 2015, one of our foundational commitments was to bring Related’s industry-leading BTR platform, long pre-eminent in New York City, Boston, Chicago and San Francisco, to London. We are delighted to embark on this project at the Triangle site which will showcase, within the amazing King’s Cross campus, our decades-long expertise in BTR- specific building technology, unit design, programming and amenities, customer service, and proprietary technology tools. Our Argent Related team has done a fantastic job integrating these ideas with their deep local expertise in a way that will be uniquely London and King’s Cross.”

Tom Goodall, Partner and Head of Residential at Argent Related added: “We are focussed on creating the most exciting places in London for people to call home. The King’s Cross Estate is already a very desirable place to live. With the completion of the estate and leading international companies such as Google and Facebook bringing more jobs into the area, we anticipate that demand for professionally managed rental homes at the Triangle Site will be very strong.”

Argent Related is developing the site in partnership with the King’s Cross Central Limited Partnership (KCCLP), the freehold owner of the King’s Cross Estate. KCCLP brings together pension fund AustralianSuper, clients of the international business of Federated Hermes and Argent investors.

Midgard is the appointed contractor for the development.
