I think that north quay will also get built when there is need for the space and city pride being reside tail should have no trouble getting funding.

Someone commented in the skyscraper section that the Riverside south towers will not be built beacuse GP Morgan does not need additional office spaces in CW. I aint sure its true though ..

The ones to watch are Heron Quays West in Canary Wharf alongside other residential towers. But as previously said you've got the likes of Baltimore Wharf within spitting distance that is being prepped.

£1bn ($1.5bn) Asian Business Port | Royal Albert Dock E16

London forum thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1350521

Royal Albert Dock by My-Trusty-Instamatic, on Flickr



Boris Johnson to seal £1bn docks deal with Chinese developer
Financial Times
29 May 2013
Quote:
Boris Johnson will on Wednesday seal a £1bn deal with a Chinese property developer to turn a historic London dock into a 21st-century “Asian business port”.

The scheme, which will see Advanced Business Park create a 3.5m sq ft office complex at the Royal Albert Dock, is the London mayor’s biggest commercial property deal and one of China’s largest investments in the UK.

Mr Johnson said the 35-acre east London project would create a third financial district in London after the City and Canary Wharf and would be a beacon for Asian investors looking west.

“For centuries the waterways of east London were the throbbing arteries of UK trade and commerce. This deal symbolises the revival of that great era,” said Mr Johnson.

No tenants have yet signed up for the scheme, the developer’s first outside mainland China, but ABP is targeting Chinese and other Asian banks seeking access to London’s international markets. Visiting representatives from 20 Chinese banks are expected to attend a signing ceremony on Wednesday at City Hall before visiting the site.

Great News! That area needs some more investments. Lots of free land.

It looks nice in places now anyway. Next to Excel, Aloft hotel, UEL, but some neglected gaps in between. I am actually more concerned about south side and that abondand elevator or mill. Are there any plans for that?

You can't really compete with Rotterdam as Rotterdam is serving the whole continent of Europe including France, Netherland and to some extend Germany, where London can only surve UK which, of course is smaller combined to the whole Europe.

That is partially correct. However. Shipments coming from the America's could port at London with incentives more so then Rotterdam, but Rotterdam would still receive a lot of shipments from this batch anyway.

Main trading routes are still Asia<->Europe so would be difficult to compete...

London's gateway is also home to Europe's biggest logistic park.

This has huge implications on it's capacity and use.

This allows goods to be stored on site reducing travel time, distance, emissions and so on.

Many global companies will save a lot of money by this and with Asia and BRICs being the new emerging markets.

London could certainly become one of the largest ports in Europe and the world.

Still not sure how this is going to work. I work in Marine industry (before closely related to merchant ships and now not so much) so pretty much know that for Europe routes to Asia are the busiest of all.

Container ships are coming to Rotterdam and everything gets unloaded to trains and lorries and gets delivered across Europe. If you do it through London, it will have an extra leg of shipment across the Channel anyway, so it's again time of loading this on ship or train (ship would be cheaper but slower), spending half day of getting it to Europe and unloading again, so won't work.

That's why DHL have their main hub in continental Europe as well.

What logistic park you have in mind? I didn't hear that before.
