Lying within the borough of Camden, Cadence is nestled in King’s Cross, the best-connected area in the capital. The former industrial area has been under major regeneration to become a thriving district. Now, the neighbourhood is bustling with creative energy, flourishing businesses, and world-class eateries. If you are in need of some shopping therapy, Coal Drops Yard is the perfect destination for you. A 5-minute walk away, this mall bursts at the seams with over 50 shops and restaurants in a majestic alfresco setting.
There are plenty of charming green spaces surrounding the new complex. Right on the doorstep is Lewis Cubitt Park, a small beautifully landscaped area suitable for a yoga session or a tranquil walk. Mere minutes away, Gasholder Park offers a leafy waterside sanctuary with lovely canal views. There is also a large city plaza with over a thousand choreographed fountains that attract numerous visitors. If you feel up for a little picnic with your friends and family, Bingfield Park will be a great pick. Away from the buzzing Granary Square and Coal Drops Yard, the park provides some peace and quiet alongside a grassy area for picnics, a tarmac ball court, and basketball hoops.
As a major rail hub, King’s Cross provides unrivaled transport connections. Whether you travel around the city or outside the country, there are plenty of links for you to choose from. Thanks to Eurostar, mainland Europe is less than 2 hours away. In addition, all five of London’s airports can be reached in less than an hour if you prefer travelling by plane.
Cadence comprises a 6-sided perimeter block with a courtyard at the centre. The new complex includes 2 towers of 11 and 15 storeys with an intermediate 4-storey shoulder. Presenting a modern take on classical architecture, the striking red-brick façade features Bézier curved arches at the ground and top levels of Cadence. The landmark structure is peppered with an array of different-shaped floor-to-ceiling windows that are arranged in a playful way. Complementing the unique style of the new development, the Juliet balconies sport simple straight-line railings.
The focal point of the new development is a beautifully landscaped central courtyard. Sheltered from the buzzing streets, the leafy area comes with a tranquillity water feature that creates a serene atmosphere for all residents to enjoy. Upon arrival, you are greeted with a double-height, vaulted entrance lobby that boasts stunning terrazzo floors, warm brass tones, and refined black stained oak, accompanied by bespoke integrated post boxes. For some peace and quiet, you can head to a comfortable residents’ lounge overlooking the courtyard or visit the 10th-floor terrace that offers panoramic views of the city. In addition, there is also a fitness space, equipped with exercise bikes, weights, and mats, if you need to let off some steam.
Cadence comprises a total of 103 units, ranging from studios to three-bedroom apartments, designed by Alison Brooks Architects, while the interiors are provided by Conran and Partners. Some homes come with private terraces, where residents can enjoy some fresh air or have lunch while basking under the sun. Bathing in an abundance of natural light, the living areas are designed to create an elegant and cosy space. The kitchens benefit from a collection of state-of-the-art Siemens appliances, which includes a hob, an oven, a microwave, a dishwasher, a fridge/freezer, and a washer-dryer. Meanwhile, the bathrooms come with high-quality brushed stainless-steel brassware and terrazzo vanities made of marble fragments. The master en-suites are equipped with walk-in showers, while the main bathrooms feature baths.
