The building of the Victoriagate centre is well on the way.

I took this photo on September 23 2015 while holding my camera against a metal meshed viewing point in the security hoarding on St Peter's Street. It's deceptive as it does not show what is still a largish 'clear' area between the centre and the mass of materials. Millgarth Police Station would have been in the front. It's already getting hard to recall what the area looked like!

The Victoria Gate is soon to be opened so I thought with it being fairly quiet on Secret Leeds recently that I would post these 3 images showing the site on August 29 2014, 2015 and 2016 (today!) which I have taken from the Victoria Gate webcam archive.

Noticing that today's image (Aug 29 2016) does not show the black security hoarding that has been there for ages and knowing it was there recentlyish I've looked at the image archive and found that the hoarding was taken down on August 27 2016.

Apologies for the large size of the images. I did not realise they would be so big. :shock:

These 2 photos show the change of view looking across Harewood Street in one I took on October 11 2013 and one I took from about the same spot on January 10 2017. The Victoria Gate centre has completely changed the view across Harewood Street but is much better than the old eyesore car parking area.
