Demolition update regarding Ludgate House


McGee to start tearing down Ludgate House
constructionenqurier.com
1st September 2017

Quote:
McGee has been given the green light by development manager Native Land to start the structural demolition next month of Ludgate House on the south side of Blackfriars Bridge.


The Ģ4.2m demolition package marks a significant step in 1.4m sq ft redevelopment plans for the area by an international consortium comprising, Temasek, HPL and Amcorp Properties.

Initial enabling and demolition works were completed last October by McGee who will now carry out the deconstruction and demolition works of the existing 10-storey 1980’s commercial building.

The building is expected to be down by March 2018.

Nope - this will be the upcoming "Spire London" development which is in Canary Wharf, but a separate scheme to the Wood Wharf project

So?

If the result of the EU referendum was the disaster that many predicted it would be, the London property market, both commercial and residential, was supposed to have been in meltdown for the last 12mths and the 'remoaners' on SSC, of which there are plenty, would be gleefully listing all the cancelled/mothballed projects to prove their point. That hasn't happened, much to the 'remaoners' disappointment, no doubt.

We've seen an unprecedented surge in residential development over the last 3-5yrs in London, which will no doubt slow down for a few years as part of a natural cycle of a notoriously hot or cold property market in the UK, just like it's always been for one reason or another.

We probably won't see a similar level of construction in London again until a few years into the next decade.

London will go on regardless of any Brexit blowback, with both good and bad times ahead, just as it did for nearly 2000 years before the EU existed.

Many of the schemes frequently updated by myself and others, were under construction with contracts signed before the ref. It's only been 18months but the departure of the EBA and EMA and Samsung opting for Berlin, is the thin edge of an otherwise huge iceberg. Is things staying the same a really cause for celebration given that Brexit advocates promised a land of milk and honey ?
