Description of The Lighthouse Building

The Lighthouse is a mixed-use building on the corner of 285-297 Pentonville Road and 372-380 Gray's Inn Road in London WC1.

The site is situated opposite the entrance to Kings Cross St Pancras Station.

Completed in 2016, the building provides 17,000 sq ft of Grade A offices.

The building got its name from the distinctive lighthouse structure on its roof which is thought to be a legacy of its Victorian past when the ground floor was occupied by Netten’s oyster bar. The local legend is that when fresh oysters arrived the Lighthouse beacon was turned on.[1]

The video and entertainment platform Vevo will be moving into The Lighthouse building in London’s King’s Cross.

Nick Capstick-Dale of UK Real Estate said: “This important building was on the listed buildings ‘at risk’ register when I acquired it. Throughout the development process my focus has been to build a new building behind the listed façade which delivers the quality and style of offices sought in the marketplace today. Its views over the regenerated King’s Cross station are spectacular.

“The tremendous demand for new space at the King’s Cross Central development has shown the potential for the area, and we believe that The Lighthouse is one of the best office buildings in this rapidly-evolving neighbourhood. We are delighted that a business as vibrant and multi-national as Vevo has decided to make the Lighthouse its London home.”

The offices were marketed through Levy Real Estate and Gerald Eve.
