I'm not usually a fan of huge construction sites, but this one is actually making good use of an area that was not going to be green any time soon and the open public spaces are interesting and inviting. The one in front of the Granary Building, which holds both an art college, a bar and a restaurant, has very cool fountains that seem to be dancing to unheard music. All around are benches, tables and chairs under trees and, along one side, are street-food vans serving all kinds of interesting dishes. It's a feel-good place workers want to go to. And, as an extra bonus, the Regent's Canal runs there and steps down for both getting to the water and sitting in the sunshine, have been installed. A place to go check out even if you have no business there.
