Craig White, senior project director at Argent, said: “We have set out to foster a community of shopkeepers and restauranteurs that are connected by a commitment to quality, craft and innovation. This is very much now taking shape, with the four exciting new signings today very much displaying these qualities. With over 50 new stores, each an experience, and all set in the heart of King’s Cross, the opening of Coal Drops Yard will be like nothing else.”
The quarter will feature over 50 stores, restaurants and cafés that will be housed in a set of reimagined historic buildings and arches directly adjacent to Granary Square and Regent’s Canal. The different areas of the development will offer space for large statement stores as well as a range of smaller pop-ups and experiential shops.
Coal Drops Yard was originally established in 1850 to handle the eight million tonnes of coal delivered to the capital each year.
Retailers already signed to the scheme include Paul Smith, Tom Dixon, Samsung, Cubitts, Universal Works, Maya Magal and Le Chocolat, as well as restaurants Barrafina, Casa Pastor and wine bar The Drop.
In addition, fashion and homewares retailer S120 will be expanding from its Islington base to open a second, larger location at Cola Drops.
