JPMorgan emerges as £210m underlying financer on Heron Tower

Starwood Property Trust, the US mortgage REIT, provided a £270m five-year loan as reported by CoStar News almost three weeks ago, of which, £210m was provided by JPMorgan in a LIBOR-based collateralised term financing facility, reflecting Starwood’s first non-dollar based and non-US based property funding facility.

In addition, Starwood European Real Estate Finance (SWEF) extended an additional £18m, taking the aggregate to £288m. Starwood Property Trust has retained a £60m junior investment.

JPMorgan effectively provided a corporate funding line for the Starwood’s financing of the 46-story tower located at 110 Bishopsgate, reflecting a 77.7% of the principal £270m financing loan, which finally funded on 1 October.

Thanks, but I was referring to the already-built one with the blue sheets covering it, immediately next to the Strata.

I just hope we see some of it up here in the Midlands.
Considering its fate is Atlantis a wise comparison?

The Thames Barrier is the world's second-largest movable flood barrier (after the Oosterscheldekering in the Netherlands).

The barrier was originally designed to protect London against a very high flood level (with an estimated return period of one thousand years) up to the year 2030, after which the protection would decrease, whilst remaining within acceptable limits.

This defence level included long-term changes in sea and land levels as understood at that time (c. 1970). Despite global warming and a consequently greater predicted rate of sea level rise, recent analysis extended the working life of the barrier until around 2060–2070. From 1982 until 19 March 2007, the barrier was raised one-hundred times to prevent flooding. It is also raised monthly for testing, with a full test closure over high tide once a year.

Released in 2005, a study by four academics contained a proposal to supersede the Thames Barrier with a more ambitious 16 km (10 mi) long barrier across the Thames Estuary from Sheerness in Kent to Southend in Essex.

In November 2011 a new Thames Barrier, further downsteam at Lower Hope between East Tilbury in Essex and Cliffe in Kent, was proposed as part of the Thames Hub integrated infrastructure development. The barrier would incorporate hydropower turbines to generate renewable energy and include road and rail tunnels, providing connections from Essex to a major new hub airport on the Isle of Grain.

In January 2013 in a letter to the Times a former member of the Thames Barrier Project Management Team, Dr Richard Bloore, stated that the flood barrier was not designed with increased storminess and sea level rises in mind, and called for a new barrier to be looked into immediately. The Environment Agency responded that it does not plan to replace the Thames Barrier before 2070, as the barrier was designed with an allowance for sea level rise of 8mm per year until 2030, which has not been realised in the intervening years. The Thames Barrier is around halfway through its designed lifespan. It was completed in 1982 and was designed to protect London from flooding until 2030 and beyond. The standard of protection it provides will gradually decline over time after 2030, from a 1 in 1000 year event. The Environment Agency are examining the Thames Barrier for its potential design life under climate change, with early indications being that subject to appropriate modification, the Thames Barrier will be capable of providing continued protection to London against rising sea levels until at least 2070.

£1.5bn Elephant & Castle first phase homes plans lodgedAaron Morby | Mon 21st October | 10:57

Lend Lease has today submitted detailed plans for the first 360 homes at the Heygate Estate, part of the £1.5bn regeneration of Elephant and Castle in south London.



The first phase ranges from three storey houses to a 16-storey tower with a bias towards larger family homes. All the homes will include a private balcony, terrace or private garden.

Pascal Mittermaier, Lend Lease’s project director for Elephant & Castle, said: “The homes that replace the Heygate Estate will be some of the most sustainable and energy efficient places to live in Britain and we look forward to working in partnership with Southwark Council to deliver them.”

^ That area seems like a good opportunity for deverlopers to create a new mini residential cluster like St George Wharf and other towers in Vauxhall.

Kuwait said to bid $2.4bn for London development

Kuwait has made a bid of £1.5bn ($2.42bn) to buy a London real estate development that includes City Hall, an amphitheatre, offices and shops and restaurants, it was reported on Friday.

The Gulf state is keen to buy the More London complex next to Tower Bridge in what could be Britain’s biggest property deal, The Times reported.

It said that St Martins, the property division of the Kuwaiti Government, is in discussions to buy the 13-acre site.

More London includes City Hall, the headquarters of London Mayor Boris Johnson, a sunken amphitheatre called The Scoop, office blocks, shops, restaurants, cafes, and a pedestrianised area containing open-air sculptures and water features, including fountains lit by coloured lights.

The beginning of construction at Chobham Manor, in Stratford's Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, is one step closer



Plans to build nearly 1,000 homes at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park have taken a major step forward.

A document produced by joint developers Taylor Wimpey and London & Quadrant, detailing how planning guidelines will be adhered to - known as the zonal masterplan - was approved by the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) this week.

A detailed planning application can now be submitted to the LLDC with a decision expected in the next few weeks.

Situated between the former athletes’ village, now called East Village, and the Lee Valley VeloPark, Chobham Manor forms part of the LLDC’s park-wide plans for five new neighbourhoods.

Dev Secs says London office market is bouncing back
22 October 2013 | By Vern Pitt

Developer to press ahead with second phase of major speculative office scheme in Hammersmith as demand for office space picks up



Development Securities will increase its focus on building large-scale office developments in London over the coming years, the firm’s chair has announced.

While reporting the firm’s interim results to the City, chair David Jenkins said demand for office space was “strengthening in fringe locations of Central London”, which meant the firm had to focus on the sector.

He said: “There is evidence over recent months that some of the lights are coming back on within the UK economy.

“London, with its population growth and status as a leading global city, has benefited from positive GDP growth for some time now and, with a steady influx of foreign capital and further infrastructure improvements, this seems set to continue.

“Outside of London, however, concerns remain as to whether this incipient economic recovery is sustainable.”
