BT plans redevelopment of Battersea London exchange
17 May 2012

It is thought that British Telecom (BT) is working on plans to bring forward the former London exchange building as a major development opportunity.

BT plans to draw up a "major development scheme" for the site that would include a "significant" amount of residential development, before marketing the site for sale, according to Industry reporter CoStar.

The 700,000 square feet exchange building is located in Battersea, within the Vauxhall Nine Elms Battersea Opportunity Area (VNEBOA), which the Mayor, in collaboration with Lambeth and Wandsworth Councils, has earmarked as suitable to support the building of 16,000 new homes.

The telecoms company is understood to have appointed property consultants CBRE to act as its adviser on bringing forward the plans for the site, formerly the world's largest, digital international telephone exchange.

It is understood that BT will decommission the building by July 2014 and CBRE will work alongside it on drawing up a major development scheme that will include a significant residential element before bringing it to the market for sale, according to CoStar.

SoHo residents given another glimpse into South Street revitalization

Residents in London’s SoHo area are seeing a lot of change these days, particularly around the former South Street hospital lands.

For some, they are concerned about what they were hearing, and in some cases seeing, in the neighbourhood. So, the SoHo Community Association provided them with an opportunity on Wednesday (May 16) to get answers.

During the association’s regular meeting, held at the Maple View Terrace seniors’ residence, the association invited representatives of both the city and Fincore Consulting to have a discussion on the current state of redevelopment in the area.

John Fleming, director of planning, and Michael Tomazincic, a city planner, represented the city while representatives of Fincore Solutions Inc., a group that has publicly stated its desire to help develop SoHo, originally accepted, backed out last minute.

Southwark promises 1,000 new council homes by 2020

A borough in south-east London is promising to build 1,000 new council homes by 2020 which it says will provide homes for locals in overcrowded flats.

Southwark has 20,000 people on the waiting list for a council property.

Since 2004 only 450 new council homes have been built across the whole of London.

And despite tens of thousands of affordable properties being built, demand is still outstripping supply.

I don't think so....There was an agreement with the developers of Strata Tower ('the razor') to re-clad the adjoining tower.

Looks like it's finally started..

David Cameron told: Put people first and build the estuary airport

18 May 2012

Residents of west London today urged the Government to “put people first” as they backed plans to build a new airport in the Thames Estuary to solve Britain’s aviation crisis.

Pressure is mounting on the Government after BAA chief executive Colin Matthews warned David Cameron that Heathrow would be reduced to a “local airport” by 2027 if it is not allowed to expand. It is at maximum capacity and cannot accept new routes.

The Conservatives promised not to pursue plans for an expansion of Heathrow in September 2010 but are being urged to reconsider.

Today local residents insisted “no means no” and called on the Prime Minister to build a new airport in the Thames Estuary instead.

London housing crisis: should we build on the green belt?

Some believe the growing capital will have to expand outwards. Others are not so sure

Within the M25, there are 110,000 hectares of green belt land. Even if we built on a third of it, we could provide more than 1 million new and affordable homes. First-time buyers could have a chance to get on the housing ladder, we could restore some sort of sanity to London's crazy housing market and, most importantly of all, we could at last house the poorest and most vulnerable Londoners, instead of sending them off to Stoke and other northern districts...

London has simply run out of space and its out-of-date green belt is the culprit. This is the real story behind the Newham's social cleansing story, and unless City Hall is prepared to face up to the need for London to expand, I can guarantee that we will see more shock and horror stories highlighting London's housing crisis over the coming months.

Great Portland sells £100m of London assets

PROPERTY firm Great Portland Estates sold three buildings for over £100m in London’s West End and Midtown districts yesterday as it continues to recycle capital into its major London schemes.

The company said it has sold 184/190 Oxford Street, Buchanan House in Holborn and a portfolio of properties at Portland Place for £106m, and 23 per cent above their September 2011 book values.

The Oxford street building, which is leased to retailers including Aldo shoes, was sold to CBRE Global Investors for £38.5m while Buchanan House, a 67,000 sq ft office and banking hall let to HSBC, was sold to Orchard Street UK for £20.5m.

A subsidiary of Amazon properties bought Park Crescent East for £47m from GPE’s joint venture with a Capital & Counties.

Chief executive Toby Courtauld said the sales continue its strategy of recycling capital into “recycle more meaningful opportunities.”
