LONDON HEATHROW ANNOUNCES NEW €3.5 BILLION INVESTMENT PLAN FOR 2014 TO 2019

London Heathrow Airport has announced €3.5 billion of investment – in addition to the €13 billion that has been invested since 2003.



The announcement forms part of the airport’s business plan for 2014 to 2019 – and represents one of the largest private-sector investments in UK infrastructure.

The plans include the completion of Terminal 2 and the early works on extending the building; the development of a new integrated baggage system; and the construction of new taxiways and stands which will allow Heathrow to accommodate more of the most modern aircraft.

Colin Matthews, Heathrow’s CEO, said: “Heathrow is the UK’s only hub airport and a strategically important national infrastructure asset.

“Heathrow faces stiff competition from other European hubs and we must continue to improve the service we offers passengers and airlines.

“We have invested billions of pounds in new facilities such as Terminal 5 in recent years and passengers say they have noticed the difference.

“Our plan for a further €3.5 billion of private-sector investment will further improve the airport for passengers.

“The plan represents good value for money for airlines and passengers and comes at no cost to taxpayers.”

The investment plans include priority areas such as:

New Terminal 2

Heathrow will open the new Terminal 2 in 2014.

Smoother journeys

Heathrow will build more self-service check-in kiosks and introduce new self-service bag drops.

Consistent service

Heathrow will provide additional customer service training for staff, and introduce mobile staff with tablet computers to provide greater assistance to passengers.

Improved efficiency

The airport will deliver €300 million of savings to minimise airline charges by improving operational efficiency; retiring old facilities such as Terminal 1.

Better surface access

Heathrow will extend its innovative personal rapid transport pods to link Terminals 2 and 3 with their business car parks. The airport will fund part of the Crossrail project which will link Heathrow to the City of London, Canary Wharf and the East End quickly and efficiently.

Heathrow is also promising greater punctuality; quicker connections; upgraded stands for quieter aircraft; reduced pollution.

Central London development to lure Singapore investors

Land Securities, a UK based property developer, is set to launch its Kings Gate mixed development project in Singapore on Saturday. Kings Gate is part of Land Securities’ GBP2 billion (US$3.174 billion) regeneration of the Victoria area in Central London.

Valued at GBP350 million (US$555 million) Kings Gate comprises 100 residential units, Grade A office space and retail units, and is scheduled for completion in 2015. Located within walking distance of Buckingham Palace and Westminster, Kings Gate affords panoramic views of London.

Tom Eshelby, residential director of Land Securities’ London portfolio, believes that Kings Gate’s location in the heart of Central London makes the development conveniently located for just about anything in the city.

“The prime area in Central London, SW1, is distinct from the wider area in London. Kings Gate is located squarely in prime Central London, and international investors only seem interested in owning property in the prime Central London area,” Eshelby said. “It’s a truly international marketplace.”

Foreign purchasing in London more than doubled during 2010 to 2011 to GBP4.3 billion (US$6.827 billion), according to Knight Frank property consultants.

Land Securities aim to introduce 600 new luxury residential units onto the market in the coming years and have initiated work on the Victoria Circle project, one of the largest mixed developments in Central London. Victoria Circle will boast office, retail and residential units and is set to launch in 2014.

BBC Headquarters has moved to Media City in Salford, Greater Manchester in Northern England.

The new headquarters look like this.

Cool, it's got that neighbourhood feel and it's about time Canning Town joined the building boom.

Willmott Dixon to start £250m London estate renewal



Willmott Dixon’s development arm Regen has reached financial close on the first phase of the £250m redevelopment of a major Tower Hamlet’s estate in London.

The deal with housing body Poplar HARCA will see building work start in March on the first 105 private sale homes in the plan to transform the Aberfeldy estate.

The multi-phase regeneration of the seven acre Aberfeldy will see 1,176 homes, shops, healthcare and community facilities created over 12 years.

During the course of the long-term project, over 1,000 construction jobs will be sustained and it’s also expected to bring 300 new jobs to the area after completion.

The work replaces dilapidated 1950s-era housing to provide a better living environment for residents, complete with new shops and open, green spaces for recreation.

Brian Brady, managing director of Willmott Dixon’s residential development business, said: “After a lot of work in the planning stage, we can now start on site and help turn what is an exciting vision into reality.”
