Urban Wandering: a return visit to the north of King's Cross

Having been hugely impressed with what I discovered on my previous Urban Wander to the north of King's Cross, and with the weather as good as it was during my first visit, I decided to make a return trip. I am fascinated by the building in the middle of this picture, but have absolutely no idea what it is. I found something similar in Tower Hill which turned out to be a hydraulic accumulator tower, but I'm not sure this is the same at all.

And here we have the mystery building again, but from the other side. If anyone knows what this might be, please shout.

Further along the Regent's Canal, past the now completely redeveloped Granary Square, which I blogged about last time, I spotted these two buildings which were presumably part of the former King's Cross goods yard. The red roofed building on the right looked particularly impressive from a distance.

Unfortunately this was the nearest I could get to the red roofed building from the other side as the site is all boarded up as part of the ongoing King's Cross redevelopment.
