Schemes do not commence simply when they become visible to this forum. There is often years of work on site acquisition and feasibility studies before a planning application is made, let alone construction starts.

When the referendum took place, millions of pounds had already been spent on almost all the projects mentioned in this thread. The only chance developers have of getting a return at that point is to press on and hope for the best.

In fact there is a huge potential downside in being the last man standing when the music stops. Result: build as quick as possible and reduce your exposure. Result of that: frenetic construction activity.

The question you have to ask is if the feasibility study activity up the line is just as frenetic, or dead as a dodo? I'm afraid that the truth is that, whilst not not zero, the level is pretty close to the latter.

This might recover of course, (still a fair chance that Brexit collapses altogether) but my point simply is, you cannot count cranes in London and use that to infer anything much of use about Brexit at all.

Indeed, these schemes are typically several years in the works.

60% of RIBA members have seen projects cancelled, delayed or scaled-back thanks to Brexit according to RIBA. Over a third have had projects cancelled.

One such instance: Spanish architect Luis Vidal said that unannounced plans for a major multinational's large office scheme in London have been put on hold thanks to Brexit. The multinational is now looking into build it in another EU city instead.

McGee to start tearing down Ludgate House

http://www.constructionenquirer.com/...ludgate-house/



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 £4.2m 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.

That`s what i also think. The future is uncertain. Many companies just wait until the situation is clear. Just imagine if alle EU workers have to go back. London would not need a single new apartment in the next 12 years.
