Square dance

  • Comment

Astragal hears that hot on the heels of the completion of the Norman Foster pedestrianisation scheme for Trafalgar Square North, Westminster City Council is thinking about a radical new design for Leicester Square.

Londoners and visitors will know that the square is a major magnet, but the experience of using it is far from satisfactory; too many gloomy trees, too many railings, and not enough open-air use.

That could be about to change - to a continental-style piazza, without the trees. Perhaps the forthcoming redevelopment of the now-dowdy Swiss Centre to designs by Bryan Avery will help things along.
