"When it opens this week, Granary Square will be one of the biggest public spaces in Europe – a focal point for the regeneration of King's Cross, a neglected part of London.

It will be managed as part of a private estate of 10 plazas and parkland in the area near the rail hub. A street sign makes this clear. 'Welcome to King's Cross,' it reads. 'Please enjoy this private estate considerately.'

Over the past decade, large parts of Britain's cities have been redeveloped as privately-owned estates, extending corporate control over some of the country's busiest squares and thoroughfares.
