Each building if you look at it is not worth much since there are many more in the same city and even more in whole Europe, but it's the understanding of history and street design of that whole group of buildings that makes them unique and quite valuable.

Same situation you have in many other cities, such as New York;



A single house is not worth much, but that series of buildings and the way they are built is the reason why they are iconic and more popular then some larger buildings.

Coal Office, King's Cross, London
The whole King's Cross area is undergoing a massive revitalization.
Nearby the Coal Office, the Coal Drops Yard (another Victorian-era brick industrial building) is being transformed by Thomas Heatherwick.
I'll post it on here when it's completed.

GREAT !!! One of the best conversion in the last 20 years or more. I quote this to see it again on the current page. Especially I love this because it was built in a poor continent - Africa, and in a poor country ! Big win for South Africa!

Definitely. Heatherwick turned that stark industrial building into a work of art, both inside and out, all while retaining its industrial character. There are two similar old silos in my city Toronto that could use this as inspiration for conversion.
