The sooner HS2 is complete, I guarantee you will see every place linked to it going up the country doubling or more in price, just by being linked to London.

Even the super rich start renting these out at some point.

No, they're not. Speculation on real estate is a horrible waste. But, that's a discussion for another thread.

Sky bridge in general, or that specific sky bridge?

Because in my opinion the one they had designed was clunky and didn't blend into the structure at all. I would have preferred a redesign rather than a complete removal, but perhaps they couldn't make it work.

Whilst the new towers may be better than the previous proposal, the sky-bridge would have been iconic of the area. As it is now 'all' (and I use that term rather loosely) we're getting here is a number of towers. The sky-bridge would have been something different and recognisable.

McMullen lands £10.5m cladding deal from O’Rourke

Lakesmere subsidiary McMullen Facades has won a £10.5m contract to provide the full vertical envelope for the West block at the Tribeca Square residential development in Elephant & Castle, south London.

McMullen was awarded the package by main contractor Laing O’Rourke who are working for developer Delancey in partnership with Oakmayne Properties.

McMullen will start working on the 23-storey West Tower this August.

Work will involve providing the complete vertical envelope using a unitised system with bolt-on balconies, brise soleil and feature aluminium cladding.

The ‘fast track’ installation is due to take just 23 weeks with McMullen completing one floor per week on average.

Wealthy Ukrainians and Russians seeking London property



The crisis in the Ukraine has led to an increase in the number of wealthy Russians and Ukrainians seeking to buy property in the capital, or even making contingency plans to relocate to Britain, estate agents said yesterday.

Fears that Russia's military incursions into Ukraine could plunge it into economic and political isolation are prompting some wealthy residents to consider leaving while they can.

"We have seen quite an increase in inquiries from Russians and Ukrainians in the last few days," said Edo Mapelli Mozzi, of Banda Property, which specialises in property in central and west London. "A number of them have cited the recent troubles."

According to research by the estate agents Knight Frank, Russians were last year the biggest foreign buyers of homes worth more than £1million in the capital, spending in excess of £500m in total.

Despite the chill in diplomatic relations between London and Moscow since the murder of the ex-KGB agent Alexander Litvinkenko in 2006, wealthy Russians are still relatively free to come and live in Britain. They can take advantage of an "investor" visa scheme that allows wealthy individuals residency rights in Britain in return for a minimum £1 million investment in government gilts, although it does not give them a passport.

Last month, the Home Office's Migration Advisory Committee disclosed that more than 850 Russian oligarchs and Chinese millionaires had won the right to live in Britain under the scheme.
