What do you think their decision will be. What I'm asking is: should we be optimistic?

Fantastic updates SE9. 20 FS is an absolute success! Cannot wait for it to be completely finished.

Canary Wharf Station looks outstanding!!! An asset to the area.

I'm surprised how quick Baltimore Wharf is coming along - great news.

Great little video about London's skyscrapers and an amazing photgrapher named James.

Worth having a little watch.

The St Paul's issue is why everything big in London from now on is going to be at Canary Wharf. Especially when Crossrail comes in. No reason to build elsewhere once the City cluster is 'finished'.

But that's not true.

There will be more high rise buildings appearing more widely than ever before over the coming ten years.

Nine Elms; Croydon; Old Street; Stratford; Old Oak Common.....and probably a number of other locations around London will see high rise clusters in the coming years.

I'm sure that SE9 could list them all!

Skanska confirms London office job deal worth £97m



Skanska today confirmed it has signed a contract to build the One New Street Square office scheme in the City of London.

The contract price for the Land Securities job came in at £97m and paves the way for construction to start on the vast office scheme.

It is the third major office win for Skanska with Land Securities and a major coup over its project team over major London rivals Mace and Sir Robert McAlpine.

It will build the 287,000 sq ft office building, which take the form of two connected wedge shape on the site of the International Press Centre on Shoe Lane.

The two flat-iron interlinked buildings will rise to 16 and 14 storeys.

AECOM is on board as mechanical and electrical consultant, with Waterman acting as structural consultant in the Mid-town job.

Of all the projects going in London, I think that the 9 elms redevelopment is the most amazing and probably the most ambitious. The mix between different styles of architecture, the mix between lowrises and highrises with three of four good looking skyscrapers is really great. It is a well thought redevelopment. The way they have chosen to regenerate the battersea power station is the icing on the cake.

Portland House. It's getting pretty much a complete reworking, will also get a height reduction and will be converted to a residential building.

Saudi firm gets nod for $46m London property revamp

Saudi-based conglomerate Al Murjan Group has won planning consent from Westminster City Council to build luxury apartments in London.

The company said in a statement that it has been given the green light to redevelop Vantage House, a property it acquired in January 2013. The planning permission will allow Al Murjan Group to convert Vantage House from an office building into 20 luxury apartments.

The project redevelopment value is estimated to be around £28 million ($46.5 million) and expected to be completed towards the end of 2015, the statement said.

The approved scheme envisages converting a six-storey office building into 20 luxury apartments ranging from one-bedroom to four-bedroom penthouses. The company said other value-added specifications such as security, private cinema, car membership and concierge services will also be included in the project.

Currim Oozeer, deputy CEO of Sidra Capital, the strategic adviser to the project said: "This is another major milestone achieved for the project by the project team. The project seems to be on track to achieve its development strategy. The investors continue to support the project notwithstanding their ability to exit at interim post planning permission."

The initial marketing of the units is expected to start in June and will primarily target buyers in the Middle East, East Asia and Europe.
