SE9 and Core Rising. Excellent work in updating the London list of projects. A couple of observations:

Arrowhead Quay. Revised proposal for two buildings 183m/55 floors and 170m/50 floors Application submitted to Tower Hamlets December 2012. Can’t find which architects are behind this proposal.

City Pride/Landmark North. Architect on revised scheme is Squire & Partners.

She looked happier when she was waving to the public who were waiting outside for her, though.

Amazon today unveiled a new multimillion-pound central London office.



Quote:
The online retailer is moving to a 12-floor building near Smithfield Market that will eventually provide a base for more than 1,600 staff. But it was careful not to describe the 210,000sq ft glass and steel block as its “head office” as controversy continues over its ability to avoid paying vast sums in corporation tax by claiming to be based outside the UK in Luxembourg.

The company refused to say whether it would now formally be based in the UK for tax purposes

The firm, which MPs criticised as “evasive” and which has paid only £5 million of tax on UK turnover of £527 million in the past two years, has signed a deal to occupy the building in Holborn Viaduct.

A spokesman refused to disclose details except to say the deal was worth “millions of pounds”. The building is due to be completed in September and “several hundred” staff are expected to move in by the end of the year.

Foster Designs New Luxurious City Residences

Adding to the growing amount of new residential developments in the City of London could soon be revised plans for Sugar Quay, or Waterside City as it was previously known.

Past proposals featured an office building between Lower Thames Street and the River Thames of approximately 21,000 square metres but these plans have now been dropped for a residential-led development that will have 165 apartments within it spread over the part nine, part eleven storey building. The ground floor will contain commercial space, namely a new riverside restaurant, on its southern side.

In addition to the new plans there's also a new architect - David Walker Architects have been replaced by Foster + Partners.

As one would expect the building is planned to step up in height away from the river with the southern half of the H shaped footprint stopping at the lower level. This also opens up views across the Thames for the upper penthouse levels.

The height, 44 metres on its northern portion, pushes the limits allowed by the sightline from the Monument to Tower Bridge, but the architects argue, that it is no more visible than the northern gatehouse of Tower Bridge whilst the lower southern level whilst the lower half with a height of 37 metres improves the visibility of part of the northern area of the bridge.

Externally the materials are dominated by roach stone, polished stone and matte stainless steel but the real star of the showing is the glazing that riffs off the classic bay window of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. The architects hope this will help create an expansive feeling of space for residents, as well as improve the already impressive views further.

It all contributes to what will be some of the most luxurious accommodation in London with facilities for the residents including a swimming pool and gym, a library, a lounge and a function room.

London office building generates £1.1bn for regional economy

London construction projects generate twice as much revenue and job opportunties for areas outside London as they do for the capital

Private construction projects in central London generate twice the economic benefits outside London, according to a new study by PriceWaterhouseCoopers.

According to the report, which was completed for London First, the capital benefits by £0.6bn annually from large construction projects, yet the further contribution to regional economies is almost double that, at £1.1bn a year.

Furthermore, construction work in central London supports twice as many jobs outside London as it does in the capital. The 12,200 jobs supported in London annually are dwarfed by the 22,400 supported outside the capital, according to the report, which studied projects undertaken by nine large developers which have been completed since 2008 or have an expected completion date by 2016.
