Opening date confirmed for Coal Drops Yard development

Coal Drops Yard, the new shopping and leisure district in London’s King’s Cross designed by Heatherwick Studio, has confirmed its opening date. It will welcome the public on Friday 26th October 2018.

Four new retailers have been confirmed at the venue: Tracey Neuls, Studio One Twenty, Morty & Bob’s, and The Sports Edit will be opening stores. There will be more than 50 stores, restaurants and cafes at Coal Drops Yard, which is set in a set of reimagined historic buildings and arches adjacent to Granary Square and Regent’s Canal.

Footwear and accessory designer Tracey Neuls, known for her stores curated as galleries, will create a store heavily inspired by Coal Drops Yard’s history. The Coal Drops Yards store will feature a specially designed ‘Bagley’s’ shoe in honour of the London nightclub of the same name, previously located on the site.

“With so much sameness in the world, we enjoy offering a different viewpoint from shoes to shop,” says Neuls. “Coals Drop Yard’s history and mix of old and new was very appealing and a natural match for us. We are always challenging the norm and will continue exploring the different feelings that a retail space can evoke, developing a unique and inspirational venue in keeping with our personality.”
