Derwent gains planning for two London schemes

http://www.constructionenquirer.com/...ondon-schemes/

Quote:
Developer Derwent London has gained planning permission from Westminster Council for two projects totalling 443,000 sq ft.

The first is for a major mixed-use development at 19-35 Baker Street W1 and the second for a significant retail-led project at Holden House on Oxford Street.

19-35 Baker Street W1 is held in a joint venture, in which Derwent London has a 55% share, with The Portman Estate. This scheme will comprise 293,000 sq ft of net lettable space.

Holden House at 54-68 Oxford Street will comprise a 150,000 sq ft redevelopment behind a retained façade.

I agree with Darjole, I do think Sadiq Khan is doing a very good job, it's funny that he didn't really provide evidence to back his claim between brexiters and Sadiq Khan.

What a bizarre response to photos of Sadiq Khan attending a groundbreaking ceremony, having been invited by the heads of Google.

If it's a question of popularity, it's worth noting that:
  • Proportionally more Londoners (57%) voted for Sadiq Khan in a multi-choice poll, than voted for Brexit (40%) in a binary poll.
  • Sadiq Khan won the biggest personal mandate in British political history, amassing more votes than Boris Johnson had ever managed [-]
  • Londoners believe that Sadiq Khan is doing a better job than any mayor before him [-]
  • Sadiq Khan has maintained a continuously high approval rating, and is the most popular senior politician in the UK [-]

A prominent politician held in high esteem, which is a rarity these days. You'll be seeing him invited to more prominent groundbreaking ceremonies in future.

Ardmore swoops on luxury resi deal in Covent Garden

http://www.constructionenquirer.com/...covent-garden/

Quote:
Ardmore has landed the main contract at Londonewcastle’s Parker House development in the heart of Covent Garden’s Seven Dials Conservation Area.

The project has been designed by architect Robert Partington & Partners and will see the existing brick façade retained while the remainder of the building is demolished to create a new basement and six-storey residential block and new mews houses.

Keltbray has already completed the majority of demolition work.

The scheme is due for completion in mid-2019 and will provide 40 new high-specification private apartments and three affordable units within the mews.

We will see if he manages to pedestrianise Oxford Street. If not, he is just typical populist who can talk but cannot walk. Because so far he has delivered array of broken promises:

- Fares
- Housing
- 2 MLN trees
- Zero days of stikes

And so on.

Something tells me that Oxford Street won’t be pedestrianised before 2020.

It's not hard to verify, a 1-minute Google search will suffice. The Brexit vote simply had a far higher turnout than any mayoral election. 2.3 million Londoners voted for Brexit, whereas only 1.14 million Londoners gave Sadiq Khan their first round vote. This rises to 1.31 million once second choice votes are included. So it's fair to say that far more Londoners voted for Brexit than for Sadiq Khan, indeed more than twice as many as Khan's first round votes. However it's a slightly bizarre claim. So what if more voted for Brexit than Khan? They're different votes for different things, and it's perhaps worth mentioning that more Londoners voted remain than have voted for anything else in history.
