They are, at long last, starting to demolish the Swiss Centre (10 Wardour Street, the building on the north-west corner of Leicester Square). A crane was sighted there yesterday (but went home) and it has less windows than it did before. I'm not entirely clear what will be there afterwards: some generic glass and steel building I guess?

Yet it retains curious signs of habitation : the glockenspiel which was a novelty at first, is still active (and apparently is to be resited nearby, unfortunately); and a discount ticket store is occupying the southern face of the building still, even as workers start to dismantle bits of the tower.
