Kier replaces BAM on £46m London schools build

Kier has been chosen to build five London schools which were taken back from original winner BAM.

BAM was removed from the London 2 batch of schools in May after failing to agree costs with the Education Funding Agency.

Kier will now build the five schools which are due for completion by the end of 2017.

A DfE spokesperson said: “We are working with Kier on the rebuilding of five schools in the London 2 batch.

“All are on course to be completed by the end of 2017.”

Wates has also won an £80m batch of Priority School Building Programme schools in east London.

£800m overhaul of Shoreditch site will be done sensitively, says Hammerson boss
Evening Standard
24 July 2014


Plans for the £800 million overhaul of one of the capital’s largest derelict sites in Shoreditch will be “sensitive” to the local area, the chief executive of co-developer Hammerson insisted today.

Hammerson and Ballymore submitted plans to Tower Hamlets and Hackney councils this week for redevelopment of the historic Bishopsgate goods yard into flats, offices and shops.

The yard — left derelict by a fire 50 years ago — includes the listed Braithwaite Viaduct, one of the oldest railway structures in the world, which will be incorporated into the development.

Chief executive David Atkins pledged the scheme — which will feature up to 1500 homes, shops, offices and a new urban park near Shoreditch High Street Tube station — will be a “real addition to the London landscape”.

An optimistic prediction for Canary Wharf construction in 2015:

Most likely to be under construction:

Diamond Tower: 220m

Wood Wharf A1: 204m (unlikely to be at superstructure phase, but basement works).

Wood Wharf A3: 150m (unlikely to be at superstructure phase, but basement works).

Baltimore Tower: 150m (nearing completion)

Providence Tower: 136m (nearing completion)

Helix Tower B: 127m

40 Marsh Wall: 124m

Dollar Bay Tower 109m

Helix Tower A: 108m

Horizons: 81m

Good Chance for construction in 2015:

Arrowhead Quay tower 1: 183m (Developer making noises about starting this one up).

Arrowhead Quay tower 2: 170m (Developer making noises about starting this one up).

10 Bank Street: C. 140m - 186m (Developer already clearing the site and making noises about construction starting soon despite detailed plans yet to be submitted.)

One Bank Street: C. 140m - 186m (Developer already clearing the site and making noises about construction starting soon despite detailed plans yet to be submitted. Less likely to start up next year than 10 Bank Street)

Long shots for construction in 2015:

Hertsmere Tower: 237m (yet to go into planning, but has the backing of the Chinese Greenland group)

Riverside South 1: 236m (More likely to start up in 2016)

City Pride: 233m

Riverside South 2: 189m (More likely to start up in 2016)

Plenty more towers could start up in 2015. Here's hoping for more good news before the end of the year.

That first pic of the Asian Business Port waterfront is promising with its restrained linearity. Has a northern European feel to it, I'm thinking Hamburg or Copenhagen or Stockholm.

I know what you mean . And actually that pic is kind of astonishing: it could almost be a picture of the "main drag" riverfront of a moderately sized city, in itself. Whereas in reality it's only a new bit stuck on and the actual main CBD is a few miles west, tiny in the background -- oh no, wait, that's just the old new bit stuck on, and the actual main City is a few miles further west still. And the other main City of the city is a few miles further west of that.

Even after a decade it constantly amazes me quite how big london is

Exactly what I thought while watching the ABP video at some point: the West End is beyond the City cluster there in the background, but beyond that are places like Kensington and Notting Hill, and Brixton or Hampstead off-map, and miles and miles of suburbs all around. And in front of all this, an elegant future waterfront that is not even on the river itself but on an old harbour basin.

This $24B Hole Has London Property Prices Soaring



Although Crossrail is four years from completion, London's latest underground railway is causing a wave of excitement in the property market. Crossrail will bring 1.5 million people to within 45 minutes of central London. Bloomberg's Caroline Hyde reports on how this $24 billion (15 billion-British pounds) line is changing the property landscape.

It's getting more difficult each month to keep track! The next few years will be very interesting, especially with respect to the larger schemes.

Thanks for the run down CoreRising. Could be a busy year then. It actually looks like 2016 could actually be the year for Canary Wharf. That's when it seems we'll see multiple 200m+ rising in the area.
