Attic Self Storage, an England self-storage operator with two facilities in the Greater London Area, has created an interactive information guide to King’s Cross, a popular inner-city district of London. Created for tourists and those looking to relocate, the guide can be accessed via the operator’s website, under “community” in the top navigation bar. It covers local restaurants, music venues, parks and other places to visit. Complete with 360-degree imagery, it also features a map with pins for an enhanced user experience as well as details on new housing developments, according to a press release.
“When we first opened our new store on York Way, we were amazed at how much the local area had changed over the past few years,” said CEO Frederic de Ryckman de Betz. “We felt it would be useful to have a local guide for people moving to King’s Cross, Camden and the surrounding area as much as for visitors. We can’t wait to update the guide as this vibrant neighborhood continues to grow, and we hope you find it as inspiring as we did.”
Highlights of the guide include restaurants near Granary Square, a public plaza that features more than 1,000 choreographed fountains, and Kings Place, which contains two concert halls, galleries, a waterside restaurant and conference center. The map also spotlights Skip Garden, an urban garden in Lewis Cubitt Park, and a sculpture of Platform 9¾ at the King’s Cross Station, which pays tribute to the “Harry Potter” fantasy series.
Attic supports the community through several initiatives. Last summer, the company hosted an exhibit at its King’s Cross facility to showcase work by artists of Artbox London, a nonprofit supporting people with learning disabilities. The event’s success inspired the storage operator to keep the art on display permanently.
The same facility also contains an outdoor, interactive art space on the side of its building. Last year, Attic partnered with two local art schools to launch Market Road Gallery, which allows artists to book time to paint on the 213-foot “canvas” on the back wall of the storage property.
Founded in 2006, Attic operates a second facility in Bow, a district in London’s East End.
