Argent, the developer behind King’s Cross Central, last week announced a £250m investment package to drive forward construction of the 67-acre development

Argent, London and Continental Railways and DHL Exel Supply Chain will provide a combined £150m and a further £100m will come from the University of the Arts London. Work on the scheme is set to continue throughout 2009. However, Argent said it would not build any schemes without pre-secured lettings.
