$163m London project targets UAE investors



UAE investors are to be given the first opportunity to purchase property in a new luxury AED600m ($163m) London real estate project.

Property agency Chesterton said it will be launching Barratt London's Queensland Terrace project located opposite the Emirates Stadium in the Borough of Islington, North London prior to a global launch.

Investors in the UAE are being invited to a roadshow at Emirates Towers on June 21-22 to view the homes which start at AED1.7m.

The Queensland Terrace development offers 375 open plan suites, one, two and three-bedroom apartments and three bedroom penthouses.

In some cases maybe. Otherwise that's the biggest load of crap I've read all week. Many rich people are rich off their own backs. And owe you nothing. If anything, society owes people like the aforementioned millionaire... People like that, patron these great 'free' public institutions.

A deal has been struck which is set to bring the world's biggest brands to Newham.



Silvertown Quays will be the base for a number top companies to show off their products in an innovative brand park after the Greater London Authority signed a £1.5billion deal for the area's dramatic regeneration.

The scheme also includes 1,500 homes, as well as restaurants, cafes, galleries and leisure facilities.

Elliot Lipton of The Silvertown Partnership, which is the consortium between Chelsfield Properties and First Base behind the scheme, said: "Stand-alone brand pavilions have been built for the last decade around the world but this will be the first time that a brand park has been developed."

A brand park is a number of pavilions where potential customers can try out and view new products before buying online.

The Silvertown scheme will also see a bridge linking with Excel and the Custom House Crossrail station.

Mayor Boris Johnson said: "The confirmation of this deal to return Silvertown Quays to its former glory will bring thousands of new homes and jobs back to east London."

He said it could be worth over £6bn to the London economy and see 9,000 new jobs.

Work is expected to begin over the next two years with the first businesses arriving in 2017.

A planning application is to go to Newham Council next year.

A cross-party coalition of City Hall politicians has urged Boris Johnson to defer his decision on plans to demolish an exhibition centre in west London estimated to be worth around £1.25billion to the capital’s economy.

The Mayor is due to make his decision over proposals to redevelop Earls Court Exhibition Centre, which will see 8,000 flats rise up in its place, by July 4.

But representatives from three out of four of the parties on the London Assembly have signed a letter telling the Mayor it is “imperative” he holds off until December this year.

They argue the economic case for keeping the exhibition centre, which attracts an estimated 1.5million visitors annually, has been “understated”.

The letter adds there is also a strong case for saving a rail depot set for demolition under the plans, which have been submitted in a joint application by Hammersmith & Fulham and Kensington & Chelsea borough councils.

Dalian Wanda, controlled by billionaire Wang Jianlin, plans to develop a 160-room hotel, the first Wanda hotel outside China on the site, which is part of the One Nine Elm redevelopment project. The existing scheme includes development of a 205-meter tower, which would be the tallest residential tower in Europe.

Previous owner Green Property, the Irish developer, has already received planning approval to build towers of 43- and 58-stories on the site. Green Property netted £90 million from the sale, according to published report.

"I warmly welcome Dalian Wanda's investment into London as part of our plans to dramatically transform Nine Elms into a stunning quarter of the capital, providing thousands of new jobs and homes," said London mayor Boris Johnson.

Can you not post articles which have previously been posted. It's really frustrating.

And if you know what renders are the correct ones, you should post them here by simply and kindly saying like hey guys these are latest renders of this or that project and i am sure people will appre iate your effort and contribution. However, what you are now doing is that you check out this thread just to criticise and discover someone's mistakes and then you throw all the nasty comments and harsh criticisms at that person. Please be friendly in this online community.

No-one makes money entirely independent of the society they live. And what more can society "owe" the millionaire? We already glorify money and those who have it, and endow them with higher social status and respect, when actually it should not give any of those things. Making people pay their fair share of taxes does absolutely nothing to stifle people's desire or capacity to earn more money, but it does mean that services can be paid for which many other people require to live on and to themselves take advantage of opportunities. I heartily support people patronising institutions, but does that mean they should be exempt from paying taxes? No.

... To get back to some semblance of construction commentary, bonquiqui is absolutely right, those apartments seeking UAE investment are awful. Both the colour and the shape of those top segments jar with the rest of the building.

you are a regular contributor to the London forums, and i appreciate your stuff, but if you are a regular contributor, surely you must be a regular reader and realise these news stories have already been posted when they were breaking?!

Siemens pulls out of race for £1bn London Crossrail carriages contract
Friday 5 July 2013 13.42 BST

German company's withdrawal is major boost to Bombardier and Hitachi, who are expected to build trains in UK if they win

The German engineering group Siemens is pulling out of the race to build carriages for the London Crossrail project in a boost to two rival bids that hope to construct the £1bn order in the UK.

The company had been favourite to win the rolling-stock contract and its withdrawal is a major boost to Bombardier and Hitachi, who are expected to build the trains in Britain if they win. Siemens had already pledged to build the trains in Germany.

Winning the Crossrail contract is seen as make or break for Bombardier, which runs the UK's last train-making factory in Derby, employing 1,600 people.

Bombardier cut 1,000 jobs in 2011 after it was denied a £1.4bn Thameslink contract by a rival bid from Siemens – a deal that was confirmed last week. Unions and local MPs have been urging ministers not to repeat this decision to safeguard jobs at the Derby factory. Japan's Hitachi is building a plant in Newton Aycliffe, County Durham, to manufacture the next generation of intercity trains.

Approved plans for £20m Camden estate regeneration includes new affordable homes
Friday 21st June 2013 - 10:03am

The London Borough of Camden has approved plans for a £20 million regeneration of the Tybalds Estate in Holborn, which will create new affordable and private homes in the area.

Camden Council is to develop the new housing directly, with work expected to start next spring.

The Tybalds Estate sits between Theobald’s Road and Great Ormond Street Hospital, and comprises 360 homes in nine residential blocks built in the '50s and '60s.

The plans include:

• Providing 93 new homes in new buildings, and side, rooftop and underbuild extensions to existing blocks, 68 of which will be affordable homes.
• Significantly improving the public realm, landscape and open spaces within and around the estate, including new courtyards and new granite paved urban square.
• The amount of useable open space will be increased by around 12%.
• Improvements to the two existing community spaces on the estate. Overall there will be a 21% increase in community floorspace.
• Creating a new street and shared surfaces areas, as well as reorganising vehicular access.
• Improvements to existing residential blocks, with new brick overcladding and insulation to replace the grey corrugated metal cladding added 20 or 30 years ago to the ends of a number of blocks and staircases.
• A contribution to the council’s Community Investment Strategy (CIP) that will be used to improve a range of housing, community facilities and schools within the borough.

That's a tiny part of it. The whole project covers a large area, into two boroughs.

Don't patronise me. And its hardly just me, is it? Many people expressed their annoyance with his troll posts.

He posts a lot of old stuff, he posts a lot of stuff full of rhethoric designed to bait other forumers, he posts it everywhere except the UK forums. He's a troll.
