Too many to list below £1 billion.
I'm not sure that it counts in quite the same way but there's also the redevelopment of Tottenham.

From the Haringey Council site:

Quote:
Leading development professional Robert Evans, best known as part of the Argent team leading the transformation of King’s Cross, has been appointed Chair of the Tottenham Landowners and Major Businesses Group......

He said:

"I am delighted and honoured to be appointed as Chair of the group and I’m excited to be working with some of the leading organisations involved in Tottenham’s regeneration.

"Tottenham has amazing potential, and with nearly £1billion of investment already agreed, I look forward to working with the group to help transform the area."

From the Haringey Council site:
You're right. There's +£1bn secured for the Tottenham area, but it's split amongst more than one project. The largest single project in Tottenham (Northumberland Development Project) is shy of £1bn so I didn't include it.

Thames Estuary Airport (London Britannia International)

[IMG]image hosted on flickr

12135_106_Elevated_Britannia-PANORAMA-5 by danwells2, on Flickr[/IMG]

A consortium of industry leaders have today gone to parliament to put their fresh proposals to the UK government for 'London Britannia International' (absolutely rubbish name IMHO) after opinions were sought from industry and organisations on future UK air capacity to inform government policy and create momentum.

The proposals are epic. The airport itself is nearly 15km long and will include a floating 4-6 runway airport capabale of 24 hour operation, with underground rail links to the main terminal at Ebbsfleet International Rail station, and an extension of Crossrail. There would also be 2 further terminals at Waterloo and the current site of London City airport so that people can check in for their flights in central London and then go 'airside' on a high speed train to the main terminal. The proposal would see heathrow Airport brought out for £12Billion and the land that Heathrow stands on used to create a new 'borough' with plans for up to 300,000 homes and real estate development worth £45Billion.

The vision is amazing and is the bold decision that is needed in my view - it will see a massive upheaval of industry and jobs from West london to the Thames Estuary, but solves issues such as noise and pollution blight, economic malaise in the Thames Estuary. I hope these proposals are seriously the front runner.

The Leadenhall building is sleek and smooth! That straight line is just sublime.

Love it.

That £1Billion+ List was crazy.... London is a VERY busy City.

Potentially (I guess), with loads of highrises!! which will have good transport links and sufficient capacity thanks to crossrail and the Piccadilly line. Close to Central London, everything will be master planned! Residents of the area will stop complaining about the noise and pollution. They can make a huge profit so the new airport will be AT LEAST 2/3 funded by it. The area can become another Nine Elms or even better! Plus they've already planned whats going to happen in case they need to extend it further in the future (What would happen with Heathrow?). The sooner we realise it's the best option, the better.

I do understand that it may have some issues aswell, but definitely not more than the other options.

Chinese Group in Talks to Buy London Development


Private equity giant Blackstone Group is set to sell a 33-acre office development in west London to China Investment Corp. for about 800 million pounds ($1.3 billion), according to news reports.

The deal is currently under negotiation, with an agreement expected by the end of November, the Financial Times reports.

The deal would mark the second U.K. purchase for CIC, the sovereign-wealth fund. Last year the fund purchased Deutsche Bank's London headquarters for £245 million, the FT reports.

I hope this proposal will be approved and then a truly world class airport will be built at a place far from densely populated areas.
It's physically impossible for 3 or 4 planes to land per second.
