In a bid to establish London's Leicester Square as one of the world's leading entertainment centres, Westminster City Council has asked EDAW to produce a strategy for a major revamp.The proposals, to be finalised within a couple of months, could include the replacement of the central gardens with an open piazza with al fresco dining and space to host open air events. The council is also considering refurbishment of the square's North Terrace, and is consulting with local property owners.Council leader Simon Milton said the vision was for Leicester Square to become the jewel in the crown in the capital's renewal. 'If we are successful, Leicester Square will become the centerpiece of London and symbol of regeneration equivalent to New York's Times Square with, we hope, similar positive benefits, making it a symbol of London's civic renewal.'
