London Gets Half of Mideast Commercial Property Cash in Europe
Bloomberg
28 August 2013
Quote:
London was the destination for almost 50 percent of Middle East investment in European commercial property in the first half as political stability and growth prospects attracted buyers, CBRE Group Inc. (CBG) said.

The Middle East accounted for 9 percent of all commercial real estate bought in Europe during the period, up from 6 percent a year earlier. The region’s share of foreign investment on the continent increased to 21 percent from 12 percent. North America was the biggest investor, with 13 percent of the total and 24 percent of the forieign share.

“London remains the destination of choice for foreign investors due to its solid growth potential and its status as a global financial hub, alongside its stable political environment and a transparent legal system,” Nick Maclean, Middle East managing director at CBRE, wrote in the report.

Almost half of the Middle East investment in Europe comes from the region’s sovereign wealth funds, according to the report. Foriegn investors accounted for 44 percent of all European commercial property transactions, up from 40 percent a year earlier. Cross-border investments within Europe declined to 16 percent of transactions, compared with 20 percent through 2011 and 2012, CBRE said.

Some updates from the other forum that aren't posted here I don't think

HTA gets go-ahead for Wembley student housing





Quote:
Scheme uses a prefabricated system developed by the practice

HTA Design has won planning consent for student housing in Wembley, London.

The 19 storey building on North End Road will provide 450 rooms of student accommodation.

Karma House is part of Brent Council’s wider aim to improve and increase student accommodation in the Wembley area.

The project is designed to be built using a prefabricated construction system developed by HTA, which features pre-cast concrete floors and steel panels.

The technique can create towers over 20 stories in height, erected at a rate of eight modules a day.
