St Pancras International
Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner, but I'm very excited about the recent opening of the renovated St Pancras Station. The striking 19th-century Gothic train station in north London had been sitting in a serious state of disrepair for many years 'til Eurostar came along. And we've been waiting for its reopening for a very long time.
St Pancras needed a better use than occasional movie appearances. (Being way more photogenic than the real deal, it doubled as Kings Cross for the Harry Potter flicks.) In November, after 11 years of cosmetic surgery (as well as 30 miles of tunnelling, new track and signalling, costing a staggering $12.3 billion in total), it reopened for business. And by all accounts, it's pretty stunning.
