Fit for Kings

photo(5)The Jacksons sale has begun but that’s not the only indication of change that will reinvigorate this part of town.

The crane in the distance is a better clue.

The refurbished offices at Abbey Gardens South, Kennet House being turned into flats, 100 King’s Road being turned into serviced apartments and the likely developments in the pipeline for King’s House and King’s Point along with a host of smaller schemes will bring so many new customers for the shops and restaurants along there that the future has got to be among the brightest outside of the station area.

There will be at least 164 new flats for either temporary or permanent use on a stretch of no more than about 500 yards.

If anyone was looking to set up a new business, there is some promising new footfall to be found here.
