4 Track Cars Storm London

The BHP Project takes the BAC Mono, KTM XBow, Ariel Atom and Caterham R300 through the city streets of the English capital.



When you launch your first video filming a supercar as exotic as the Lamborghini Reventon Roadster, what do you do for a follow-up? That’s the question that has apparently riddled the guys over at The BHP Project. Their answer: a track-car run through the center of London. A few months after their first video with the Reventon, the team has assembled four of the most extreme racecars for the road that money can buy: the BAC Mono, KTM X-Bow, Ariel Atom and Caterham R300.The idea wasn't just to draw attention, though the quartet did that, too. It was also to see how the least practical cars would handle an urban environment very different from the racing circuits they were designed for. See what they found in the video below.

A close-up shot of the Leadenhall Building, nicknamed the Cheesegrater due to its triangular shape. The building was designed by Sir Richard Rogers




A view of the slowly growing Leadenhall Building situated in the heart of the City of London. Once completed the building will stand at an impressive 225 metres, making it one of the tallest buildings in the city




Due to its wedge shape, the Leadenhall Building has been given the nickname the Cheesegrater but it is hoped that this unusual design will have less impact on the protected view of St Paul's Cathedral

Assael Designs New Paddington Residential

http://www.skyscrapernews.com/news.php?ref=3267



Assael Architecture has designed a new residential scheme for Site 1 of the North Westminster Community School Site, also known as North Wharf Gardens, that sits in Paddington opposite the completed Paddington Walk residential scheme.

The project consists of 150 new apartments of which a mere 17%, or 25, will be affordable and the other 125 will be aimed at the private market, a figure that only a few years ago would have been considered unacceptable. Interestingly the entrance to the affordable housing has actually been placed on the back of the building raising some interesting connotations although the back is colonnaded and faces on to what will be extensively landscaped gardens.

The project has been effectively designed to stand as a perimeter block that will fit in with Site 2 once that is finally developed. It's massed to comprise visually of three towers of 15, 13 and 11 storeys with interconnecting blocks. It rises at roughly the same heights as Paddington Walk on the other side of Hermitage Street.

On the front of the building the tower elements are set back slightly from the street with projecting central balconies that are in line with the interconnecting blocks. These blocks have recessed corner balconies and a slightly darker cladding scheme of brick compared to the whiter taller blocks. On the upper levels of the intern connecting blocks will be step backs creating private terraces for residents to enjoy whilst the brick framed windows are abandoned for floor to ceiling glazing.

North Wharf Gardens is being developed by AMWAJ Property Ltd, and this scheme replaces, in part, previous designs by Farrells.

A Look At Chipperfields Canada Water Tower

image hosted on flickr


He's one of the most acclaimed British architects working today, but there is a serious shortage of David Chipperfield designed buildings in the United Kingdom. Here we look closer at the proposals from the award-winning architect for a landmark tower at Canada Water.

This part of the scheme will have 27,431 square metres of space, 39 floors of residential space arranged a central core with three lifts, plus a lobby on the ground floor that is shared with a restaurant. The rooftop will have a garden of 336 square metres and there will be 57 spaces for cars in the basement. In all there will be 78 one-bedroom apartments, 87 two-bedroom apartments, and 78 three-bedroom apartments.

The 145-metre height is justified partly as that of a visual way-point that can be used to roughly navigate a bend in the River Thames that marks the start of the approach towards the City of London. As well as this it acts as a pinnacle for the skyline of Canada Water by providing a truly tall building to add some soar above the proposed and constructed shorter towers.

The ancient Greeks and Romans would mark major thoroughfares with triumphal columns, and here too the building has been designed as a slender column. The balconies have even been positioned to create the subtle impression of fluting by employing white metal tubular columns that run vertically up. The columns are intended to give varying appearances depending on the angle of viewing from white to dark metal creating a sense of depth for the viewer.

The fact that London is outperforming Singapore in the arena of FDI is quite impressive considering that the Asian capital has become the premier hub for property investment of mainland China's privileged elite.

I think most of that money is coming from Europe (Russia) more so than Asia, right?

Populous’ Olympic stadium is set to become the new home of West Ham football club.

West Ham will contribute £15 million to the transformation of the stadium - five times the amount originally mooted, Newham council will invest £40 million and the government has agreed to provide up to £25 million should it be required once construction tenders are returned.

Populous will oversee the conversion of the 54,000 seat venue and works will include a new roof, corporate areas, toilets, concessions and retractable seating.

Wimbledon plan second roof on Court No 1

Plans for a second roof at Wimbledon have emerged, with Court No 1 benefiting from continued redevelopment by the All England Club.

According to the Daily Mail, the development could be unveiled next month, with construction going ahead after this summer's Championships.

It is understood that a second retractable roof at Wimbledon would also be more cost-efficient than the Centre Court offering.

As part of SW19's plans - entitled 'Wimbledon 2020' - further redevelopment includes alterations to the Royal Box, while the practice facilities and the club's indoor court complex will also be uprgraded.

The news of a second roof is signficant given that it means television would be able to cover two matches at the same time, regardless of the weather.

Helical Bar and Aviva Investors have received planning permission for their 1.55 million sq ft residential-led Brickfields development at White City in London.

Planning permission and conservation area consent were granted subject to entering into a section 106 Agreement.

The 11-acre site is based on the former Dairy Crest site just north of Westfield London shopping centre and located next to White City underground station.

The scheme will comprise 1,150 new homes, 210,000 sq ft of offices and about 60,000 sq ft of retail, leisure and community uses set within extensive landscaping.

About 20,000 sq ft of new retail space will be created around a new urban square targeted at local and start-up companies andan ecological walk and a major public garden will also be developed.

Brickfields forms part of the White City Opportunity Area, a large area of land identified as a key strategic location for regeneration by Hammersmith & Fulham Council and the Mayor of London.

Goldman gets go-ahead for 'banking factory’

Goldman Sachs has been granted approval to build a new “banking factory” in the City, ending a protracted bid to develop the site that was held up by protected murals on the existing building.

But now the investment bank has been given the go-ahead for its plan which will see existing properties demolished to make way for a new glass-fronted building on the site at Farringdon Street in the capital, around the corner from Goldman’s current headquarters in Fleet Street.

A City of London planning officer described the new building, which has been designed by architects Kohn Pedersen Fox, as a “banking factory”.

“Let’s make no bones about it,” Peter Rees said at a planning meeting on Friday.

“If there’s an area where we’re going to accommodate groundscapers this is probably the best place,” he said, adding that work could begin “almost immediately”.

Goldman is one of the largest office space occupiers in the City. Its two main offices are in Fleet Street, while the firm’s asset management division is based near the London Stock Exchange on a 200,000 square ft site in Paternoster Square, opposite St Paul’s cathedral.

Wealthy Eye London, New York as World’s Rich to Increase by 50%

London and New York will be the top destinations for the world’s wealthy elite as the number of people worth more than $30 million swells 50 percent over the next decade, according to Knight Frank LLP’s Wealth Report.

The two cities will remain the favored locations for the world’s richest people until 2023 even though the fastest wealth creation will be in Asia and Latin America, according to the London-based property consulting firm.
