If all skyscrapers in London were concentrated in the city, London would have a worldclass skyline

Ive decided to leave the forums for a while. Coming every day to a site and getting my hopes up that there is going to be something new is getting a bit depressing, as im not seeing tons happen. I'm hoping that by the time i come back there will be more construction and more proposals in London. Bye for now!

Heron Tower to start in Summer 2007

Heron Tower seeks investors
By Jenny Davey

GERALD RONSON is seeking to raise 125 million to help to finance development of his Heron Tower, which he hopes will become the first six-star office scheme in London.

CB Richard Ellis, property adviser to Mr Ronsons Heron Corporation, has circulated a confidential document to a limited number of potential investors with a view to raising 90 per cent of the equity required to fund the near-800ft skyscraper, to be built in the City at Bishopsgate.

According to a report due to appear in Property Week magazine today, Heron hopes to raise 125 million from up to four new partners and will invest about 20 million itself. The balance is likely to be financed through bank loans.

Mr Ronson has already put the Heron Tower project into a Jersey property unit trust, an offshore limited partnership that will own the building. Heron will manage the project and will lead the development.

Stephen Hubbard, deputy chairman of CB Richard Ellis for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, said that the move underlined Mr Ronsons commitment to develop the tower without tenants lined up. Mr Hubbard said that the completed scheme would be worth about 500 million and Heron was keen to spread the risk by bringing in new partners.

Heron Tower will have a concierge, rather than a reception, and travel facilities and top-class catering facilities. The scheme is also intended to be the most environmentally friendly in London.

Construction will begin in summer of 2007 and be completed in 2010. By that time CB Richard Ellis hopes to secure rents for the best office space of 75 per sq ft. The last time rents of more than 70 per sq ft were achieved in the City was 1999.
