Been lurking on these forums for over a year now. Particularly the shard thread and this one.
There was me thinking London was down and out getting over taken by developing countries. It seems to be doing very well.
Where do you find all these updates?
Keep up the good work fellas

London commercial property investment 'highest since 2007'

The commercial property market in London enjoyed a strong year in 2012, with investment reaching a five-year high.



According to a recent report from Cushman & Wakefield, the sector saw £12.57 billion ($20bn) worth of Central London transactions over the course of the year. The figure represents a 25 per cent increase on the £10.9 billion total recorded in 2011.

Overseas investors made up significantly more commercial property transactions towards the end of the year, accounting for 70 per cent of City commercial property transactions by the fourth quarter of 2012.

Bill Tyser, head of City investment at Cushman & Wakefield, commented: “With continued macro-economic political unrest and the secure nature of freehold investment property in the UK, coupled with a relatively weak pound and our transparent and easy access into the property market, it is likely to ensure this international interest will continue into the foreseeable future.”

Among the major transactions that took place were the sale of St Martin's Court, Paternoster Square and London Wall. The former was sold by Legal & General Investment Management to Oxford Properties for £110 million, while London Wall was sold to Invesco on behalf of China Investment Corporation for £245 million and has been occupied by Deutsche Bank.

Have developers looked into altering some of the neighboring rail lines, such as putting stretches underground to reconnect the street grid? I'm sure its prohibitively expensive, but it would kinda suck to look out at a rail line? Also, considering that mega projects in NYC such as Hudson Yards and Atlantic Yards are being redeveloped, is there any talk of building over certain stations or rail yards in London? Even San Francisco is looking into redeveloping its King Street rail line. Just curious will all this stuff going up.

Regarding the rail termini of London, most of them are expansive arch-structures and won't be built upon. Many of them are listed, which means that they can't be changed architecturally, because their design is part of the national heritage.

Here are the above-ground termini that either will have, or already have office developments directly above the station:

Charing Cross
- Status: Office development complete (1990)


Cannon Street
- Status: Office development complete (2012)

Fenchurch Street

Euston
- Status: Proposed

Most of London's major stations are wonderful. I remember being in awe of St Pancras the first time I saw it after the redevelopment.

The Shard isn't built on-top of London Bridge station, it's to the side of the station.

The station itself doesn't have anything above it.

Those 'New Euston' images may be sexy, but I believe they date from the time before the HS2 proposal.

The Euston HS2-rebuild plans are not yet public, so far as I am aware.

Yes.

Yeah, I don't think any design has been chosen yet. Before HS2 came onto the scene there were already plans for rebuilding Euston, of which I believe the above design was in response to. Basically, Euston is going to get rebuilt either way, but HS2 changes the scope and scale of the redevelopment.
