Louis Vuitton ditches West End for King's Cross HQ

Luxury French fashion brand Louis Vuitton is set to ditch its West End base and move its headquarters to King’s Cross.

The fashion house, famous for its monogrammed luggage and fashion accessories, will join a raft of firms including Google and Fortnum & Mason that are moving to the area.

Following the extensive overhaul of the international rail station, a number of regeneration projects have helped transform the image of the area once famous for crime, poverty and prostitution.

Louis Vuitton has signed a 10-year deal to take the fifth floor of One Pancras Square, which sits between King’s Cross and St. Pancras stations and was designed by David Chipperfield Architects. 

Nick Searl, at property company Argent which manages the King’s Cross development, said to the Standard: “We have worked hard to create an exciting and varied place that appeals to a broad range of businesses.”
