5 Broadgate looks lovely. The design is very pleasant.

Great updates SE9 - we all thoroughly enjoy them.

GB Building wins £50m brace of London resi jobs



GB Building Solutions has bagged contracts worth over £50m at two London regeneration schemes on Greenwich Peninsula for Knight Dragon and in Mill Hill for Countryside Annington (Mill Hill).

The builder has just started a 9-storey block of flats for Hong Kong developer Knight Dragon, which will provide 161 homes near the Millennium Dome.

The building is due for completion in early 2015.

Further north, GB Building Solutions has won a milti-million contract at Millbrook Park by Countryside Annington (Mill Hill) Ltd, a joint venture between developer Countryside Properties and Annington Developments.

The Millbrook Park development has secured planning for 2,174 new homes, ancillary retail, light industrial and office space, an energy centre and a new two-form primary school and health centre as well as almost six hectares of parks and open space.

GB Building Solutions’ contract comprises 133 units including 31 one bedroom and 61 two bedroom apartments, 14 three bedroom and 27 four bedroom houses including access roads, car parks and landscaping.

Work is due for completion in July 2015.

Executive chairman of GB Group, Martin Smout said: “All 294 of the homes at both developments are designed to achieve Level Four of the Code for Sustainable Homes.

GB Building Solutions is planning site visits to its Greenwich Peninsula development in March, when many professionals will be in the capital to visit EcoBuild 2014 at London’s ExCeL. Please contact Ian Kilvington [email protected] to register interest in attending.

“We think it’s important to share our experiences and examples of best practice and to help develop the innovative thinking that will ultimately deliver a sustainable and prosperous future for the UK’s built environment,” added Smout.

I LOVE 240 Blackfriars - looks so elegant. It's turned out to be a beaut.
It'll look great next to One Blackfriars.

Is Nova Victoria part of the wider scheme that also involves the tube station works?

The location makes it seem oppressive but it's not a bad building.

It's beyond bad. The massing makes it oppressive, it's greyness and small windows make it look like a prison.

Definitely a building that needs to be complete before being judged I feel.
