So long as London remains the favoured city of the global rich, the boom in luxury residential construction will continue.


London is the world’s top city for multi-millionaires
http://www.cityam.com/article/london...i-millionaires

LONDON is home to more residents worth over $30m (£19.2m) than any other city in the world, but the richest cities in China are catching up fast, new figures reveal.

The UK’s capital is home to 4,224 people with net assets worth $30m or more, excluding the value of their main house.

And more than four in ten of the country’s millionaires are situated in London, compared to the seven per cent of American millionaires based in New York City. There are 281,000 millionaires in London in total, more than either Paris or Frankfurt.

But London is beaten by New York and Moscow when it comes to billionaire residents, and Chinese centres Beijing and Shanghai are climbing the tables, figures from WealthInsight show.

Between 2012 and 2020, the research group expects China as a whole to have almost trebled its number of millionaires to become the second-biggest nation of millionaires behind the United States, leap-frogging Japan and Germany.

In the space of just eight years, the UK is set to fall from fifth to sixth place in the rankings, overtaken by India despite gaining a net 245,000 new millionaires, the research suggests.

The explosion of wealth in China has already been displayed in Forbes’ latest rich list, which in March found 29 new billionaires in the country, the highest number of newly-minted super-rich residents of any nation in the last year.


Top 10 Cities Billionaires

01) New York - 70
02) Moscow - 64
03) London - 54
04) Hong Kong - 40
05) Beijing - 29
06) Bombay - 26
07) Istanbul - 24
08) Shanghai - 23
09) Paris = 22
10) Los Angeles - 19


Top 10 Cities Ultra High Net Worth (ie $30m+)

01) London - 4224
02) Tokyo - 3525
03) Singapore - 3154
04) New York - 2929
05) Hong Kong - 2560
06) Frankfurt - 1868
07) Mexico City - 1850
08) Paris - 1500
09) Osaka - 1450
10) Beijing - 1318

Chinese business park could be built on historic docks

Plans to create a multi-million pound Chinese business park in London's Royal Docks have been revealed as the preferred option to redevelop part of the historic area.

Advanced Business Park, based in China, have drawn up plans to turn the 35-acre site into the European headquarters for hundreds of Chinese firms.

The Greater London Authority, which owns the site, said The Royal Docks has £22bn worth of development potential.

Work could start within 18 months.

The Royal Docks is a stretch of land in east London running from Stratford down the River Lea to the Thames, and is already home to the ExCeL exhibition and convention centre and London City Airport.

British Land and AHMM to develop huge London scheme

Developer British Land and architect Allford Hall Monaghan Morris are working up plans for 22 new buildings in Shoreditch, according to reports.

British Land overcame competition from rival developers including Resolution Property to buy the 300,000 sq ft Shoreditch Estate site from the City of London corporation, according to the Financial Times.

The site is in the heart of east London’s Tech City and near Derwent London’s Tea Building, the Truman Brewery on Brick Lane, and Spitalfields Market.
