The adverts then were better IMO but some of the buildings are lovely

Wow wonderful panoramic shot of the skyline there

Love how despite all the new developments the 60s post office tower (or is it BT now?) sticks out. Also like the way the eye frames that building

Looking at the redevelopment of some parts of London creating new communities around square it's a pity that it isn't repeated in some of our other big cities to spruce them up

Islington just across the road did this very same procedure very successfully at the nearby Market Estate. Shockingly poor estate that was demolished in sections and people re-housed in the new build as it appeared. Much more pleasant environment now even if the overall quality of architecture is below par, this scheme looks like it will have a higher build quality perhaps inspired by the Kings Cross lands developments next door.
