Canary Wharf Group has restarted work on 1 Park Place

The construction project in Docklands which was put on hold two years ago, having submitted fresh plans for a new (1.1m sq ft) 35-storey office tower.

CWG has lodged a Squires & Partners-designed reserved matters planning application with Tower Hamlets council for an office scheme of up to 1.1m sq ft to replace previously consented proposals.

The new development, which will deliver a maximum gross internal area of 1.1m sq ft and a minimum building size of 430,000 sq ft, will comprise two basement levels, a ground floor level and 31 upper storeys, as well as the construction of a new pedestrian link. The building will rise to 568ft AOD.

Canary Wharf Group said an outline planning permission on the site would provide a “significantly more attractive offer for potential tenants, providing certainty on the use and quantum of development that can be delivered on the site, while allowing for flexibility for tenants to create a building that best meets their specific needs through the reserved matters process.”

The site was previously occupied by the Littlejohn Frazer building, an 53,000 sq ft office building which has now been demolished. Planning consent was obtained in 2008 for the development of 1.2m sq ft of floorspace designed by Horden Cherry Lee Architects.

Croydons Galaxy House | CR9

Official website: http://galaxyhouse.co.uk.gridhosted....Boards_web.pdf

image hosted on flickr


Make Architects has designed a new residential project for part of Cherry Orchard Road, a development hotspot in the London Borough of Croydon.

The project comprises of a quartet of residential buildings that range from 9 to 19 storeys in height with a total of 141 one bedroom apartments, 118 two bedroom apartments, 31 three bedroom apartments on what is currently a defunct glazed 12-storey office building called Galaxy House that is particularly prominent from the railway station.

The project is massed to have the tallest buildings on the southern part of the site, with Block A connecting to the 19 storey block B that should reach roughly sixty metres in height. Block C will be 15 storeys and connects with Block D that is set at only 9 storeys.

These are designed to help provide a transition between the low-rise part of Cherry Orchard Row and the planned towers Cherry Orchard towers that will stand near the entrance of East Croydon Station.

Further to this, the architect has opted for laying the buildings evenly along Cherry Orchard Road and situating a private share private garden at the back of blocks C and D creating a buffer between them and the nearby railway line.
Dominating the exterior of the buildings will be brick, a material that displays the residential nature of the project, presumably as opposed to glass that would be associated with office use in the area.

The scheme is a joint venture by Redrow Homes, one of Britain's major house builders, and Menta who are already particularly busy in the area with other tower plans.

Stratford Skyline Set For More Towers | E15

image hosted on flickr


Helping to cement Stratford's emergence as London's third tall building cluster is a residential project by Galliard Homes on the site of 2-12 Stratford High Street.

Located at the southern end of Stratford's main thoroughfare just north of where it connects to Bow Road, the project named Capital Towers will host 191 new apartments, all aimed at the upper end of the market and in particular workers at Canary Wharf who would be only a few tube stops away.

It should prove a popular proposition for potential purchasers if it follows the success of Stratford Plaza, which has recently sold out off plan despite having barely risen above the ground.

They will be split between two towers, City West Tower that will stand to the south of the site and rise to 14 floors, with the 34 floor Sky View Tower on the northern part that will stand a little over 100 metres tall, a substantial scaling up on the original plans by Stock Woolstencroft.

One unique feature of the project will be the communal roof garden on the fourth level that creates a skybridge between the two towers and the façade wrapping around them providing contrast with the lighter cladding that frames the floor to ceiling glazing.

Further to this outside space, there will be a residents lounge in each other, and the area at ground level will be renovated too creating a natural environment next to the nearby canal-side.
Work has already begun on site, with the first residents able to move in during 2016.

God I love London, so many new towers, so many new clusters, in three or so years, when all these towers and clusters are built, London is going to look epic. The great banner that core rising took of London a few weeks back, it would be cool to take another photo from that same vantage point in three years, that would make the best London banner ever. As always thanks NWTS for your valued updates, much appreciated.

I went past that bit of London a few weeks ago and there are lots of towers going up around there which I haven't seen on this forum before, there are also many newly completed towers that I didn't know about. As for the towers u/c or in the final stages of prep, there are some nice 100m+ towers but also a good number of mid/high rises 50-100m u/c. It's all more construction for London and more density

The new Stratford tower says that work has begun, it also says the taller tower is over 100m tall, it should be in the high rise section of the international section. Also the lots road towers (115m/90m u/c) and the lexicon tower (120m u/c) and 2-12 stratford high street tower (100m+ u/c) should all have threads on the high-rise part of the international section. It would be good to open three new threads for these towers in the high-rise part of the international section, hopfully someone will do it, otherwise we will have to wait until I get my new desktop to do it myself, if anyone has the time, pls open threads for those three towers u/c, thanks

Google's London HQ architects to design Metropolitan police building

Allford Hall Monaghan Morris wins Royal Institute competition to create Whitehall replacement for New Scotland Yard

The firm of architects behind the vast Google headquarters currently being built in the King's Cross area of London has been chosen to design London's new police headquarters, which will replace New Scotland Yard.

Allford Hall Monaghan Morris won a competition organised by the Royal Institute of British Architects to find the most suitable and financially viable proposal for the Curtis Green building on the banks of the Thames, the former Whitehall police station.

The Metropolitan police will move there in 2015, with the New Scotland Yard building on Victoria Street in Westminster being sold.

The winning design envisages a police headquarters that will be more open and accessible and will help the Met reconnect with the public, while respecting the heritage of the Whitehall conservation area in which it is sited, the police and other authorities said.

Key design features include a new public entrance pavilion, extensions to the building itself and the creation of public open spaces. The revolving sign will be retained as well as the Eternal Flame and Roll of Honour.

Work begins on new luxury housing development

St George West London's Sovereign Court, Hammersmith

Builders have commenced work to redevelop a car park and office block into 418 luxury apartments.

St George West London was given planning consent this summer to transform the Kings Mall car park in Glenthorne Road, Hammersmith.

One, two and three-bedroom flats and penthouses have been designed by architects Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands with buildings arranged around landscaped courtyards.

Workers entered the site last month and an information and sales centre has opened in Beadon Road.

Demolition of the car park is due to begin in January and the former West 45 office block will be knocked down next summer.

The first residents are expected to move in during summer 2016 with the final phases should be completed by the end of 2018.

Mayor Boris Johnson welcomes 10 Chinese businesses as they sign up to London’s £1bn ($1.6bn) Royal Docks project



The Mayor, Boris Johnson, has today welcomed pledges from ten Chinese businesses who have committed to office space in the much anticipated £1bn Asian Business Port development in London’s Royal Albert Dock.

This takes the number of firms currently set to move into the new business park to 57, and is expected to account for around 600,000 sq ft of the development. The latest ten firms include electrical manufacturers, commercial real-estate, water conservancy, educational training and fashion and textiles firms.

Speaking at a meeting with ABP chairman Mr Xu Weiping in Beijing, on day three of his six day trade mission to China, the Mayor also discussed plans to work with the UK government to revamp Enterprise Zone business incentives for the Royal Docks. In 2015 the current benefits are up for review, and the Mayor wants them extended to encourage even more Asian businesses to locate themselves in London’s historic docklands, creating an eastern trading hub in the capital.

London to become centre for trading in Chinese yuan
CBC
15 October 2013


Quote:
Beijing agreed Tuesday to make London a centre for handling investments denominated in yuan, making it the first financial centre outside of China to handle the tightly controlled currency.

The announcement came Tuesday in the middle of a five-day British trade mission to China led by Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne.

Beijing has ambitions to expand use of the yuan for trade and investment.

London is now ahead of any other financial centre in the race to become an important hub for yuan trading, after the Chinese central bank granted London-based institutional investors a quota of 80 billion yuan ($12.7 billion) to invest in Chinese stocks.

China, which holds $1.3 trillion in U.S. treasury bills, is said to be deeply angered over the U.S. shutdown and threat of default.
