First look: King's Cross unveils plans for Coal Drops Yard

Proposed design for Coal Drops Yard

The developers behind the transformation of London’s King’s Cross have revealed what the Coal Drops Yard would look like as a retail destination.

Built in the 1850s to transfer coal from rail wagons to road carts, the split-level buildings were later used as workshops, studios and nightclubs. The King’s Cross Partnership, led by property developers Argent, plans to create 60 retail units in the space, subject to approval.

The proposals, designed by Heatherwick Studio, will establish Coal Drops Yard as a retail destination, with close to 100,000 sq ft of shopping, leisure and events space.

French multi-brand store Merci is understood to be planning its UK debut in a 15,000 sq ft store in Coal Drops Yard.
