Sagrada Familia Doubt

A recent video illustrating “the final stages of Gaudí’s masterpiece”  represents, we are led to believe, La Sagrada Familia completed. However, the temple is shown incomplete in this video. Where is the plaza across from the Glory façade and the main entrance steps that, according to Gaudí’s design, span over carrer de Mallorca? The plaza and entrance steps require, moreover, the expropriation and demolition of several buildings that are still present in the video.
