Why isn't the pinnacle on the market ?. Why has a 100 bishopsgate struggling to get a pre-let then SE9 ?.

Recap their threads in the London forum.

If you believe that new tower proposals are unnecessary because there's a dearth of companies taking up space in central London, you're mistaken. Some examples from the past fortnight alone:

I believe the three new ones in the city are unnecessary as they can't fill current approved towers.

Principal Place is a 'currently approved tower' and it will be filled by Amazon employees in a few years.

While all the projects going on are great, with Kings Cross being my personal favourite, it's just a shame that the main benefactors arent those at the lower end of the income ladder.

London does indeed contribute a lot to the UK but when you look at Greater London with its 8 million residents it's no wonder that they contribute more than it takes out because london contains many exclusive and expensive addresses meaning you won't have as higher proportion of the population relying upon the welacre state for support. As the article I posted shows, london is the most expensive city in the world which is both good and bad, I was just saying that it's shame it's somewhat limited to london and London's residual wealth has not spead out.

As I asked before, why is the pinnacle still a stump and 100 bishopsgate struggling for a pre - let. My fear is we're gonna end up with three more gap sites.

London's wealth/deprivation balance isn't zonal, it's juxtaposed. The second most deprived local authority in England is the London Borough of Hackney, which is in Zone 2. The third most deprived local authority in England is the London Borough of Newham, which is in Zone 3. Hackney and Newham are both more deprived than Manchester, and both councils face greater spending cuts (27.1% and 27.7% respectively) than Manchester City Council (26.6%). I would also counter your assertion that London is only the greatest net contributor because a lower proportion of the population is dependent on welfare. London's poverty rate is higher than the national average.

The report states that London is the most expensive city in the world in which to rent residential and office space. This is due to domestic and international demand for London property across all sectors. It just indicative of the level of supply and demand.

London slaps down Salesforce's bid to rename Heron Tower

...at a meeting today, politicians voted against the plan and instead decided to call the building 110 Bishopsgate.

Fantastic news. I completely agree with the decision.

This may start to explain although i'm afraid you might not listen or understand it.

Quote:
A report by property consultants DTZ shows the supply of office space in London is now at its lowest level since 2007. It follows the best half-year of lettings since 2010.

According to Deloitte’s Crane Survey, which measures how much development is taking place in London, just 9.2million square feet of office space is currently under construction in London. That is down 5 per cent on six months ago and the lowest level for 18 months.

Some 45 per cent of that space is already let and rents are rising across London, particularly in the City and the West End as supply wallows at below average levels despite booming demand.

‘The developers that initiated schemes at the first signs of economic recovery in 2011-12 are now reaping the rewards as their schemes complete at a time of reducing availability, increased tenant demand, and rental growth,’ says Anthony Duggan, head of research at Deloitte.

‘It’s difficult to see how we will avoid a squeeze on supply across central London and over the next 12 to 18 months the lack of choice for some occupiers is likely to drive more pre-letting activity.

‘But our analysis of the longer term outlook for supply suggest 2017 and 2018 could be the years in which delivery starts to recover.’

Birmingham, what I don't understand is why these two projects are struggling to secure pre - let's. Why are you finding it hard to understand my question? .

You seem to think that every building requires a pre-let to be built. 70% of the time it's true, normally 100% during a recession (exception of London). Also
The Pinnacle had secured a pre-let, enough to kick start construction. Then the recession really sunk in. When it's come back to the table, it was then decided it was to expensive to build in it's current form and for the last 2 years new investors and new teams have got involved. Nobody knows what's being built yet so they can't market a building that even the owners aren't sure what the design will be.

I have no doubt they have interested parties but nobody will make a decision or agree to anything until either A) they confirm the original design will be built or B) a new design is submitted and gains planning approval.

Regarding 100 Bishopsgate. Brookfield have always wanted a BIG prelet to start work. Depending on what percentage this is I don't think anyone knows. This is because it may be a risk to them to start before hand although they have said they are now willing to construct up to ground level so they feel it's very possible.

Construction competition: Lodha plans £3bn push into London property

India's biggest housing developer wants to develop capital properties ranging from mid-market to super-prime

UK housebuilders could face aggressive competition in London from the Indian developer Lodha Group, which is planning a £3bn push into property in the capital, according to the Financial Times.

India's biggest housing developer, which last year bought the former Canadian high commission building in Mayfair for £306m, wants to develop properties ranging from mid-market to super-prime. "We want to be among the top two developers in London in the next five years," Abhishek Lodha, managing director, told the FT.

"Our idea is to make significant investments, which will come out of the cash flows we are generating here in Mumbai," Lodha said, outlining plans to spend £1.8bn on assets and a further £1.2bn on construction.

The group is building the world's tallest residential tower in its home city of Mumbai and recently launched a project there to build a 75-storey tower in partnership with Donald Trump. Founded in 1980 by Lodha's father, the family-controlled business earned revenues of 85bn rupees ($1.4bn) over the past financial year, mostly from sales in India's financial capital. As well as interest from property groups, wealthy Indian buyers in London have spent more than £1bn on luxury property since the beginning of last year, according to the estate agents Knight Frank.

Does this development have any impact on the Barrett office block alongside the elevated section of the M4 which, I presume, is a listed building?

This looks somewhat brutal. KPF propose a new mid rise in the City. Would have made a good site for a tower. Oh well:
