Really nice attention to detail for all the exterior spaces in the Kings Cross development. The area looks to have a great feel to it.

Wonderful, just hopping that they don't destroy old landmarks to build those buildings.

A lot of London's mid-century towers are being destroyed, however. There's only a handful left in their original state.

I understand why it's happening but I think it's a great shame that this building will go as part of the London Bridge station redevelopment.

I personally think it's good to protect old buildings but I think people go overboard with it I think.

I think many would see that as a good thing to be honest! We have some post war towers listed which are significant but styles come and go and at the end of the day it's beneficial in many cases to the users of the building to replace it with a modern building.
