It'd take too long to list projects under that mark.
... It was a tongue-in-cheek comment about how there are probably more projects over £1billion than under it, but obviously didn't translate into that over the Web.

Anyway, great news on One Lime Street, such great modern buildings all within touching distance of each other.

If I'm honest, I'm not too sure if the development will even be in CW itself... but the docklands area in general. I'm not too sure. I cannot see where it could go with all the developments going on, i.e. Hertsmere Tower, etc etc etc. Maybe closer to Wood Wharf area?

Keep in my mind I might be completely wrong lol

Chinese-state owned developer Greenland Group has swooped on Hertsmere House, a highly-prized tower site in Canary Wharf, after a deal with wealthy Irish businessman Thomas Ryan fell apart.

Brookfield set for London’s most expensive housing job



Contractor Brookfield Multiplex is in line to build London’s most exclusive block of flats in the heart of Chelsea. The Glebe scheme will boast six top-end apartments, a duplex penthouse and two large detached villas.

It tips the scales with an estimated development value of £300m and promises to be London’s dearest address.

The two villas in the scheme are expected to fetch around £35m each, upstaging even the Candy Brothers’ One Hyde Park development.

Each resident of the Glebe will have their own swimming pool and private lift making the development one of the most exclusive addresses in London, despite a relatively modest exterior.

Developer/hedge fund Orion Capital Managers is reported to have paid £85m for the site between 36A Glebe Place and Old Church Street,located next to Sloane Square.

A spokeswoman for the fund said: “We have not let a contract for the build yet and have no further comment.”

But tender information specialist Glenigan has reported that Brookfield Multiplex is set to scoop the prestigious build, which is due to start shortly.

The apartments consist of an extensive master suite, four bedrooms each with en-suite bathrooms, a drawing room, study and dining room. The villas contain seven bedrooms plus a master suite, a cinema, laundry room, sauna and therapy room.

Each property will have its own swimming pool, private gardens, games room and a private lift.

¿How much money is being invested in the real state market in London? Everytime I come in here there are new and expensive projects popping up.

No idea but there are several £1+ billion projects going up. If you drop below that mark, they're too many to count.

So the Chinese swooped in with Hertsmere Tower? Not City Pride?

GREAT news about real estate.

I had no idea that so many towers are planned or U/C in London If all of this will be built, London will have one of the world's best skylines.

SE9, as always, thank you very much for your valuable contribution!!!

I've been working in the city and it's fascinating to see how much things have changed around the square mile over the past 10 years.

Also, the fact that there are QUALITY developments going up in pretty much all parts of London is just the incredibly. Keep them coming!!!

Wow!!!

Amazing Update SE9

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I make that 69 new towers over 100m that could potentially rise in the coming years.

That is staggering!

Not bad, not bad at all. Someone knock up a render of the skyline if all that lot gets built.

I freakin love London!!! There are so many projects to look forward to. Some personal favourites are Wood Wharf, Nine Elms and the Pinnacle.
