Coal Drops Yard

King’s Cross in central London is London’s newest creative quarter. The 67-acre neighbourhood is rich in history, and much of this industrial archaeology has been woven by the developer, led by Argent, into a mix of office, education, retail, residential and leisure space. The retail element is focussed around Coal Drops Yard, a complex of Victorian brick arches which is due to open in 2018. It will be a destination which draws from the quirky, creative and global spirit of this new city quarter and nurtures one-off, independent retailers.

Opera has provided strategic advice and retail delivery project management, working in close partnership with Argent and the close to 60 individual retailers to create processes, offer advice and generally support the new shop tenants until they are up and trading.
