Uh, really?? Let's see: Rome, Paris, Barcelona, Naples, Madrid, Moscow and even Istanbul, just to name a few. Plus a slew of smaller cities as well.

I think what he meant was probably in the scale of things. If you go to any of those cities not only is development rather small compared to that of London but the vast areas you see this type of mix is also minuscule compared to London where every corner is being touched for better or in some cases worse

Forget about these cities. Even the largest city in the US does not come close to London in terms of total value of foreign investment, attractiveness and safety. This is why New York Times recently wrote an article about London becoming the global reserve currency for the rich, tycoons and foreign investors.

We all love London, but tone it down a bit. A bit of modesty goes a long way.

And I will never understand why you're happy with that last one. Property prices rise of 10% in a month is just outrageous. Imagine if house prices were lower, how much happier everyone in London would be and how much more they would be able to enjoy the city, instead of spending time commuting from the other side of the earth because this is where they could afford to RENT, let alone buy which will not ever happen.On the other hand, can you imagine how ridiculous property price rises are in the case of people who've been trying to save money for years and years to buy a house, but prices go up faster than they save? Forget foreign investors, if they wanna invest they can open up businesses and create jobs, build new houses etc. What's happening shouldn't be called an investment, this is pure exploiting of a situation.

The main part has been cleaned and the windows replaced, although that doesn't come across very well in the photo posted. You can see the effect more clearly here. But, yeah, I'd have liked something better. I guess the budget was limited.

True but NYC remains the leader in global real estate investment by quite a margin so it doesn't need as much foreign investment.

That said I'll also agree with one of the above statements, what's with the constant city vs city comparison in this forum, seems like that's always the case when I check this forum out. Sucks cause this is one of my favorite on this site.

Those graphs you provided are for "numbers" of foreign investments which I already conceived London is ahead, not "amount" of investments money-wise invested in a city as a whole. You can research the figures for global real estate investment anytime but for 2013 NYC is king. I'll stop there cause I don't wanna complain about one thing and do that exact same thing, I'm sure there's an appropriate forum for this discussion.

Grosvenor buys London resi project for £51m

Grosvenor Britain & Ireland has sealed a deal to assemble a 12-acre development site in Bermondsey for a new major residential-led scheme for London.

Under the deal the developer has bought a 10-acre site at a former biscuit factory from Workspace Group.

The site, known as the Tower Bridge Business Complex scheme, was granted hybrid planning consent earlier this year for 800 new homes, affordable housing, a new public park.

Grosvenor will also deliver new offices for Workspace on its retained 2.4 acre site providing Southwark with its largest hub for small businesses.

Peter Vernon, Grosvenor Britain & Ireland chief executive, said: “This is a very exciting opportunity for Grosvenor to help transform two currently underused sites in a vibrant London location, through a mix of new homes, community facilities, public spaces, and retail links complemented by Workspace’s innovative business hub.

Grosvenor Britain & Ireland will now consider the two sites together before consulting the local community on its development plans.
