Skanska confirmed for Axa's £115m City scheme

6 Bevis Marks, designed by Fletcher Priest Architects, is set to be completed in September 2013. The 170,000 sq ft speculative office scheme is being developed by AXA Real Estate in partnership with private equity real estate investment advisory company MGPA. Total development cost is estimated at £115m.

Skanska’s appointment follows its completion of the project's demolition phase.

The design includes floor plates ranging in size from 6,000 sq ft to 13,000 sq ft, making the development suitable for a broad range of clients either on a single or multi-let basis. It is targeting a BREAAM ‘Excellent’ rating and is designed to be 80% more energy efficient than the building it replaces. It also reuses more than 50% of the original structural mass that is part of an extensive sustainability agenda that shortens the construction programme, and helps avoid risks in the ground, the developers say.

Harry Badham, AXA Real Estate’s UK Director of Development said: “This development, with its spectacular sky-garden on the 16th floor, will provide one of the most exciting additions to the skyline in the City’s tower cluster, alongside the Gherkin and the Heron Tower. We believe Bevis Marks will provide an exceptional workspace and is being delivered at a time when new build space will be in short supply, further emphasising our ability to source innovative assets which have the potential to create significant value for our clients.”

Skanska managing director Paul Heather said: “To be appointed as principal contractor for the construction phase of this innovative 170,000 sq ft new build development is a challenging prospect, but one that we relish and we are confident that, alongside AXA Real Estate and MGPA, we can deliver an outstanding and highly sustainable new office property onto the market."

Catching Up With Vauxhall Square
Published on 14-02-2012 by Skyscrapernews.com
Quote:
Vauxhall Square is an Allies and Morrisons designed project for CLS Holdings that has been submitted as a planning application for London's Lambeth council to pass judgment on.



Set in 3 acres of space on Wandsworth Road and Vauxhall Bondway, the project will contain 15,231 square metres of grade A office space in a 7-storey building, 604 apartments of which 15% will be affordable, 416 student bedrooms, a new hotel, likely to be four stars, with 438 bedrooms and an a restaurant, plus ground floor retail, a four screen cinema intended to serve as a community cinema rather than a big brand multiplex, and two new public squares.

Of the new homes planned, the 510 private ones will be contained in two towers of 168 metre tall each. 85% of these will have their own private mini winter garden. There will also be a concierge service and rooftop gardens.

The square footprints of the towers afford the architects the opportunity to create the most efficient use of internal space possible, with a central core serving each of them. They are intended to be almost identical in design, with projecting horizontal bands of reconstituted stone creating a sense of repetition. Within each of these bands will be dozens of vertical stone fins with the glazing of the buildings sitting behind them.

The 94 affordable apartments will be located in a 20-storey tower situated on Wandsworth Road where Wendle Court currently stands. The student housing will also be in shorter towers than the private residential space of 15 and 25 floors respectively.

Great development Its good to see new housing being constructed rather than unwanted office space and especially during a rough economy developments like this one make sense.

Lend Lease unveils final masterplan for Elephant & Castle’s Heygate Estate
Wednesday 22 February 2012
Quote:
The latest proposals for the development of nearly 2,500 homes and dozens of new shops on the site of the Heygate Estate have been put on public display by Lend Lease in advance of an outline planning application to Southwark Council.
This week's announcement is the latest stage in a process which included exhibitions in July and October of last year.

The masterplan, drawn up by Make architects, provides a framework for the transformation of the Heygate site – which currently has around 1,100 council homes – to include more than twice that number of homes, mostly for private sale.

Although seductive computer-generated images have now been released, it is important to remember that none of the buildings shown have actually been designed yet.

Once outline planning permission is granted, different architectural practices will be appointed to draw up detailed plans for each block. Lend Lease promises a consistent but not homogeneous approach, with a shared palette that leaves scope for different approaches.

If the outline permission is granted, the north-west corner of the Heygate fronting New Kent Road will be one of the first sections to be developed, with completion of plot A due in five years' time. After that it will take almost another decade to see the plan through to completion.

Several aspects of the overall plan have changed since the last exhibition. The position of some of the larger proposed buildings has been tweaked to protect important local views, such as the spectacular view of St Paul's Cathedral from Camberwell Road.

The height of the tallest proposed new building on the Heygate footprint has been cut from 37 storeys to just 30 storeys. The three towers proposed for New Kent Road – indicated as 27, 22 and 16 storeys at October's exhbition – are now 25, 24 and 18 storeys.

The Walworth Road side of the site has also been tweaked to retain the line of mature trees along the eastern pavement from Elephant Road to Wansey Street.

This section will be lined with shops. "It will make a good connection from the shopping centre to the other shops on the Walworth Road where you've got a gap at the moment," says Cllr Fiona Colley, Southwark's cabinet member for regeneration.

Sunshine in Southwark
22 Feb 2012
Quote:
Most Londoners must have near them a new block of flats with acid green balconies or orange steel panels plastered all over it. These colourful attempts to enforce jollity on unsuspecting residential districts are like a rictus grin, a kind of maniacal outward expression intended to distract attention from the dearth of real design thinking in housing in the UK. It's not just the fault of architects: it's the pathetic budgets and opportunistic, bottom-line-driven housing development community that has encouraged the proliferation of cheap and grimly cheerful materials.

So it was with some trepidation that I visited the latest colourful addition to Southwark's social housing stock on Brandon Street in SE17, on the southern fringes of the notorious and soon-to-be-demolished Heygate Estate at Elephant and Castle, as part of the area's 15-year £1.5billion regeneration. The £2.45million Brandon Street building, which will be managed by London & Quadrant Housing Association, is one of two recently completed in the area by Shoreditch-based Metaphorm Architects, along with a £5.3million, 40-apartment development in Library Street near Waterloo that mixes social and private housing.

Southwark council commissioned the architects for these two buildings as part of a broader scheme (which consists of 15 buildings in total) to encourage better design in housing and to provide somewhere to go for the people all now evicted from the 1,260 homes of the controversial Seventies Heygate Estate. That project is now coming to fruition, although many of the buildings will be completed too late for the displaced Heygate residents already settled elsewhere in the borough. By some estimates, less than three-quarters of the social housing units knocked down at Heygate will be replaced by affordable housing in the immediate neighbourhood.

Landmark London site to get 2,000 new homes
Thursday 23rd February 2012
Quote:
A landmark site in London has received planning permission which will result in nearly 2,000 new homes on the south bank of the Thames near what will be the new American Embassy.

Wandsworth Council has approved a scheme by Ballymore for a 15-acre residential and business development in the Nine Elms regeneration zone.


The Embassy Gardens site will provide up to 1,982 new homes alongside shops, cafes, bars, restaurants, business space, a 100-bed hotel, health centre, children’s playgrounds and sports pitches.

It would also provide more than six acres of new outdoor public space, and new infrastructure to get residents into central London quickly.

As part of the scheme’s Section 106 package, Ballymore has agreed to pay between £52.5m and £55.7m towards improving local transport and social infrastructure. Most of this money will go towards the Northern Line Extension which will connect Nine Elms to the Tube network.

Ballymore will also provide £200,000 towards an extension of the ‘Boris bikes’ scheme, £300,000 towards a local employment initiative and six car club parking spaces.

Unusually, a ‘super-profit’ provision has been built into the scheme. If the value of the development improves during the build period the developer has agreed to share up to £40m of the extra profits with Wandsworth Council.

The funds would be used to provide more affordable homes across the regeneration zone.

Property agency Knight Frank expects values in Nine Elms to rise 140% by 2016.

Planning green light for outer London offices in Staines
23/02/2012 08:44:30
Quote:
Ashby House in Staines, which contains outer London offices across several floors, is to be replaced by a new development.

Surrey Council has given the green light to Bell Hammer and LaSalle Investment Management for an 86,500 sq ft scheme which will deliver new headquarters offices for businesses to let.

At present, Ashby House offers offices across the ground floor, first north, second north and second south levels.

Bell Hammer's Joel Hawkins said Staines is seen as an important location for new corporate space because rents have remained robust in the Thames Valley area, supply is currently limited and occupiers from both overseas and the UK are interested in having a base here.

The Ashby House site's strong transport connections to the M25 and central London means tenants will be attracted to the new outer London offices, LaSalle added. Total office space at present stands at more than 34,000 sq ft.

O’Rourke backs first privately funded council homes
Mon 20th February | 15:10
Quote:
London’s Barking and Dagenham Council has signed off an innovative deal to privately fund 477 new council homes at two sites in the town centre.

Working alongside Laing O’Rourke, its investment arm Explore Investment, and institutional asset developer Long Harbour, the council has secured £76m of private funding for two big council housing projects.

The homes will be built by Laing O’Rourke and Jerram Falkus under a deal that is entirely self-financing from the rents paid over the term of the lease.

At the end of the lease period, all the properties in the William Street Quarter site and the Eastern End of the Thames View will automatically transfer into full council ownership.

Cllr. Phil Waker, cabinet member for Housing at Barking and Dagenham Council said: “This is a tremendously exciting and innovative scheme, which will deliver much needed new homes for the people of this borough.

“The Council Cabinet made a manifesto commitment at the last local election to deliver real and lasting investment in housing, despite the chill economic winds that have buffeted our area – and this announcement is another highly visible example of our determination to deliver on that promise.

“Not only will we see almost 500 new affordable homes built in prime sites which local people can and will be able to afford to rent, we are one of the very few local authorities that is currently building council housing under our own investment programme. We believe we have a strong record to be proud of.

“I want to pay tribute not only to our own council officers for working so hard on this deal, but also to our partners – Laing O’Rourke and Long Harbour, both of whom have shown real commitment to Barking and Dagenham and an innovative approach that has helped deliver what is the first totally privately funded affordable social housing scheme anywhere in the UK.”

Lutfur’s £300m Tower Hamlets budget passed
Thursday, February 23, 2012
Quote:
Labour opposition councillors at Tower Hamlets in east London found themselves in an unplanned alliance last night with the controversial independent Mayor Lutfur Rahman which got his £300 million budget passed.

The mayor accepted seven Labour amendments in their alternative proposals at the council’s annual Budget meeting.

His move was in the face of the Conservative-led Government’s spending cuts which was forcing £100 million savings on Tower Hamlets over the next three years.

It was also a slap in the face for the Tory opposition group on the council when he rejected their alternative budget proposals out of hand.

“We’re all facing very difficult times,” the Mayor told the packed meeting.

“No leader before me has faced what I am having to—£100m of devastating cuts that no local authority leader should have to face.”

He turned to Labour group leader Joshua Peck and told him: “I am happy to accept some recommendations as amendments to my budget.”

These include cuts in redevelopment, council promotional advertising, taxis for councillors and staff, back office services and the Olympics ambassador.

Money saved would make way for Labour’s proposals to give pensioners a £50 rebate on their annual council tax, giving bonuses to the council’s low-paid staff, restoring funding to the Docklands Festival, keeping the victims’ support programme going and finding £50,000 for a full-time counsel for a project helping women victims of serious crime.

Embassy Gardens Wins Approval

Quote:



Embattled Irish developer Ballymore has secured planning permission for their residential-led development around what will be the new American Embassy To The Court of St James in London.

The planning application includes outline approval for between 1,626 and 1,982 new apartments, plus a new 100 bedroom hotel, offices, retail, landscaped spaces, and even a car show room.

Called Embassy Gardens, the scheme has gradually evolved since the United States purchased five acres of the site from Ballymore in 2009 for their new embassy. As a result, the whole thing has been masterplanned by Farrells to fit together coherently. Previously it was a brownfield site owned by DHL serving as one of their main distribution depots in London

Detailed design work has been split between three firms, FLACQ, Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, and Fielden Clegg Bradley.

Included in the development are two mid-rise courtyard blocks, with tower elements on the corner positions up to 23 floors in height that will be able to offer a greater degree of privacy and security that those working in the Embassy would perhaps appreciate.

With planning permission now secure, and the Embassy also a go, Ballymore's next step will be to start marketing the apartments. No doubt particular attention will go to the American market here.

East Wing external refurbishment – preliminary plans

Quote:
The East Wing has been a feature of the Westminster skyline since the 1960s. As the home for our busy accident and emergency department, intensive care and cardiac wards, it's a crucial part of the St Thomas' site.





The essential refurbishment involves a full recladding of the external façade. This will provide significant improvements in energy consumption, a lasting solution to water penetration, and improved access.

We have appointed the Hopkins/ISG partnership to deliver the project and the detailed design process is now underway. As the team also responsible for the Olympic Velodrome and the architects of our own Evelina Children's Hospital, we can expect both an exciting and a functional result. The design, which reflects the building's materials of slate, teak and stainless steel, also creates two full height atria for the building, enhancing the building internally and externally.

See the East Wing external refurbishment presentation (PDF 3.35Mb) which outlines our preliminary design plans. The plans will be updated as they develop over the coming months.

For more information about this scheme or other 2020 vision developments, please email [email protected].

Hammerson Rises on $981 Million Disposals Plan: London Mover
February 25, 2012, 12:12 PM EST
Quote:
Feb. 24 (Bloomberg) -- Hammerson Plc, the third-largest U.K. real estate investment trust, will sell its 624 million- pound ($981 million) office portfolio and reinvest the proceeds in shopping malls. Its shares rose the most in more than a month.




The stock gained as much as 4.2 percent. Hammerson plans to sell its 548 million pounds of existing office buildings, mostly in London, over the next three years, Chief Executive Officer David Atkins said on a conference call. Hammerson will proceed with office projects in progress, valued at 75.3 million pounds at the end of last year, before selling them as well, he said.

“This specialization will benefit shareholders, providing them with a credible 100 percent retail-focused alternative to Capital Shopping Centres and enabling management to generate superior returns,” Oriel Securities analyst Miranda Cockburn said in a note to investors. She has an “add” recommendation on the shares.

Offices represented 11 percent of Hammerson’s 5.72 billion pounds of assets at the end of last year. Atkins announced the shift in strategy as the London-based company reported a 2.2 percent decline in full-year profit excluding items. The company has two office developments in London’s main financial district: 99 Bishopsgate and Principal Place.

Hammerson was up 2.4 percent at 395 pence at 9:07 a.m., the biggest gain on the FTSE 350 Real Estate Investment Trust Index. Hammerson advanced 9.6 percent in London trading in the three months through yesterday, exceeding the 8.6 percent gain for the 11 members of the FTSE 350 Real Estate Investment Trust Index.

London’s Battersea Power Station Going on Sale, Broker Knight Frank Says
Quote:
By Jesse Riseborough - Feb 25, 2012 5:10 PM GMT

Battersea Power Station, the London landmark slated for a 5 billion-pound ($7.9 billion) redevelopment, will be offered for sale on the open market for the first time, Knight Frank LLP said.

“As one of the U.K.’s most recognizable landmarks, Knight Frank anticipates considerable interest” in the site, Stephan Miles-Brown, head of residential development, said in a statement yesterday on the property broker’s website.

The sale of the Grade II-listed building on the south bank of the River Thames will be advertised globally starting next week, Knight Frank said.
The 39-acre (16-hectare) site was valued at 500 million pounds, developer and controlling shareholder Real Estate Opportunities (REO) Plc said on Oct. 26.

REO was given planning consent in 2010 to redevelop the site, which is 2.2 miles (3.5 kilometers) by car from the Houses of Parliament.

Next generation HQ offices for Staines

Green light for new 86,500 sq ft development



LaSalle Investment Management and development partner Bell Hammer have obtained planning consent for the construction of 86,500 sq ft of new office space in Staines, Middlesex.

The new headquarter office building will replace the existing Ashby House in the town centre. With an outstanding sustainable high specification modern design the new building is aimed at national and international HQ occupiers.

Mark Beckham of LaSalle Investment Management believes tenants will be attracted by the prominent town centre location, low running costs, large flexible floor plates and close proximity to Heathrow and the M25.

Joel Hawkins of Bell Hammer has targeted Staines as a priority location for new development in the Thames Valley as supply is restricted, rents have held up well and it attracts occupiers from the UK and overseas.

Knight Frank is advising.

LaSalle and Bell Hammer are also currently working together on the final stages of development of new office space in West London at The Stanza Building (pictured). Scheduled for completion in Q3 2012 the striking new headquarter building will comprise 81,000 sq ft of Grade A office space in Uxbridge.

London’s new bus enters service
February 27, 2012 By Martin Hoscik
Quote:
The first of London’s new buses enters service today, four years after Mayor Boris Johnson promised a new bus designed specifically for the capital.



Eight of the new vehicles will eventually run on route 38 between Victoria Station and Clapton Pond, though just one bus will enter service today.

The new bus was a 2008 manifesto commitment by Johnson who has previously hailed it as “the latest, greatest masterpiece of British engineering and design”.

Speaking on Monday the Mayor said: “The green innards of this red bus mean that it is twice as fuel efficient as a diesel bus and the most environment-friendly of its kind.

When ordered in greater numbers it will make a significant economic contribution to the manufacturing industries, while also helping deliver a cleaner, greener and more pleasant city.”

In October TfL’s surface transport director Leon Daniels told the London Assembly the bus needed “thousands of miles” of in-service testing and would not go into full production until at least the Summer.
