The Aga Khan IV is in advanced talks to create a centre for Ismaili studies and cultural affairs at London’s £4bn King’s Cross scheme.
It is thought that the Aga Khan Foundation and King’s Cross Central — the joint venture between Argent, London & Continental Railways and landowner DHL-Exel – are finalising details of an agreement to develop the proposed centre at the 67 acre site.
Property Week understands that plans to build student accommodation for students attending the centre have already been agreed. The final details of the centre which will have a museum-type element are yet to be concluded between the Aga Khan, who is thought to be advised by BNP Paribas Real Estate, and King’s Cross Central.
