Simply too early to tell. For most of these projects, a large sum of money has already been invested, through the purchase of the land or whatever. Most of the big projects under construction here are on the very first pages of this thread in previous guise for example... These things take time to realise, and doing nothing is unlikely to be the best option in the face of Brexit uncertainty. It is similarly going to be problematic to sell the land on without uplifting its value. So if you have a chunk of land in London, that means developing. If anything then, there is a bit of a race to develop as no-one wants to be caught with an undeveloped asset if it does all go pop.

In short, the current activity tells you very little about any negative Brexit effect longterm. Up stream, at feasibility stage, there has been a marked slowdown. This could be the sign of something dramatic down the line, but equally I would have to accept that it could be a sign of not very much at all...

It's just a wait and see approach. Brexit will have far less of an effect than both sides in the debate want you to believe, but it will have an effect. And the effects will also vary from region to region, and sector to sector.

It's also a good bet to assume it will affect London more than anywhere else in the UK, for so many reasons too numerous and obvious to list here.

If you're planning any sort of major British investment, why not just wait six months or a year now that Article 50 has been triggered just to see how it's going, and if you need to adjust.

For comparison, real estate investment in major American cities dips in election years, and dips more with new Presidents (4 or 8 year cycle).

ok i understand its too early for talking about brexit effects...
its samely about economic strategy or policy......
When positive measures are taken, the effects arrive only 2 or 3 years later..

Heathrow secures £650m for post-Brexit airport upgrade

http://www.constructionenquirer.com/...sting-airport/



Quote:
Heathrow Airport has revealed plans to invest an extra £650m in expanding existing facilities over the course of 2019.

International investors in the airport will fund plans to ramp up spending to pave the way for expansion of Terminal 2 and a new access tunnel.

The plans send a strong signal that Britain continues to be open for business in the eyes of international investors.

With the UK set to leave the European Union in 2019, the planned investment aims to further boost passenger experience at the UK’s hub airport and improve Heathrow’s operational resilience.

Initial plans for the new investment include the possibility of enabling works for the expansion of the award-winning Terminal 2 and planning works for a new southern access tunnel for road traffic to the Central Terminal Area.

No issues, construction is on schedule.

The excavation has been pretty extensive, as it's the deepest hotel basement in London.

There is some opposition to highrises in London. But the type, tone and nature of that opposition is very different to that of Paris.
