Climb the King's Cross Viewing Platform

Though Central Saint Martins moved to their new buildings at Granary Square in 2011 and the new King's Cross concourse opened in Spring 2012, much of the area is still building site. In fact, it is one of the largest areas of urban redevelopment in Europe, as you can observe from a specially-installed viewing platform at the junction of King's Boulevard and Goods Way.

A friend recently told your author that the installation of viewing windows on building sites is evidence of the progress of humanity and perhaps this platform is evidence of an even more civilised development. The Goods Way viewing platform is made of old shipping containers you can peer into building sites to the south and east, or look north and across Granary Square and the canal to the UAL Central St Martin's buildings or west to Camley Street nature park.
