Nick Searl talks about the success story story of London's King's Cross

As Portugal continues to grow its enterprise and start-up scene and with a renewed focus on research and innovation, learn about how King’s Cross in London became a melting pot of art, science, education and commerce with architecture, new and old that responds to the varied and dynamic public realm.

We hosted Nick Searl, Managing Partner of Argent LLP and Partner at Related Argent to discuss the tremendous success story of King’s Cross, one of the UK’s most successful regeneration projects in recent times. The 67-hectare mixed-use site came to life as a public-private partnership whose strategy attracted leading academic institutions and innovative corporates, underpinned by the area’s connectivity , the group’s stellar placemaking, and quality public realm.

Hear more about the key lessons learnt on a project of this scale and how King’s Cross serves as a valuable inspiration for the future of Edu Hub Lisbon
