The Argent interview
Interview: Anthony Peter, Senior Projects Director (infrastructure), and Tom Goodall, Senior Projects Director (residential) for Argent, with David Michon, journalist.
In recent years, King’s Cross has become a byword for successful development in London. Led by Argent, it has proved beyond a doubt that high-quality buildings, a long-term approach to infrastructure and an intelligent approach to phasing can create a destination that becomes a focus for public life, and that uses its green spaces, water frontages and the ‘blue infrastructure’ itself to maximum effect. In this talk they will explain the success at King’s Cross, as well as their upcoming plans to transform Tottenham Hale.
