Leicester Square, a construction site[edit]

Leicester Square is undergoing a major redesign that has been planned for the upcoming Olympic Games. As of today, the Square is nothing more than a building yard, and a tall fence (which has "Getting ready for 2012" written on it) forbids public access. According to the sign there, the Square will be under construction until March 30th 2012. I think this info has to be put somewhere in the article. --188.39.25.248 (talk) 22:12, 25 July 2011 (UTC)


of possible interest[edit]

Apparently there was a plan to build an opera house there at one point:
