Derwent dusts off £150m Saatchi building revamp
Building | 9 October 2014

Derwent London has dusted off its £150m redevelopment of the Saatchi & Saatchi office building in central London, with three firms in the running for the job to build the high profile scheme, Building can reveal.

The developer put the £150m Make-designed scheme in Fitzrovia on hold in July 2013, after advertising giant Saatchi & Saatchi, which has occupied the building since 1975, delayed its move away from the property.

But now Derwent London has re-started the procurement of a contractor for the scheme at 80 Charlotte Street & 65 Whitfield Street in Fitzrovia, with three contractors invited to bid: Mace, Brookfield Multiplex and Bam Construction.

Rise in luxury London homes could trigger construction crunch

Record number of high-end homes being built looks set to outpace construction capacity in the capital, warn experts.



A record number of luxury homes worth £60bn are being built in London, creating a construction crunch that could lead to many of them being delayed or even ditched, a report shows.

The number of new luxury homes being planned or built over the next decade has climbed 25% to 25,000 units, according to the report from EC Harris, a built asset consultancy. The properties have a combined sales value of £60bn, up 20% on the level reported last year.

The rate of growth is down from 29% in 2013 and 70% in 2012, indicating that there are fewer development opportunities in central London.

Mark Farmer, head of EC Harris’s residential team, said: “With the UK economy back on track and London deemed a safe haven for international property investors, it’s not surprising that demand for luxury homes is fuelling ever-increasing development.”

City of London’s Office Demand Reaches 14-Year High
Bloomberg
10 October 2014
Quote:
Demand for offices in the City of London business district reached the highest level in 14 years as companies outside the financial-services industry competed for space.

Office take-up rose to 3 million square feet (280,000 square meters) in the third quarter from 2.2 million square feet in the prior three months, broker Knight Frank LLP said in a statement today. The level is almost double the long-term average of 1.7 million square feet, it said.

“Finance is now one of several sources of office demand now that the square mile’s economy has drawn in a variety of new industries, as is the case in New York’s key office market,” Dan Gaunt, head of City Agency at Knight Frank, said in the statement.

The City of London, dominated by banking and other financial firms, has seen a surge in leasing deals with companies ranging from Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN) to London Business School. That’s pushing down the vacancy rate as a development slowdown following the financial crisis limits new space coming onto the market.

Vacancies in the City stand at 7.3 percent, the lowest since the third quarter of 2007, Knight Frank said. The broker said it expects the high level of demand to continue into 2015 as companies try to secure space before rents increase.

All hail the new King’s Cross – but can other developers repeat the trick?
The Guardian
12 October 2014


Quote:
What have the developers ever done for us?

Nothing, except the two schools, the university, the 2,000 new homes, of which 50% are affordable, the swimming pool, jobs, the cookery school, the community garden grown in skips, so it can be moved around, the floodlit sports pitch, the 20 restored historic buildings, the not-bad architecture, the creation of 26 acres of open space, with fountains and trees, in what were partly inaccessible backlands. Apart from that, nothing.

The development of King’s Cross in London, now about half complete, is the most substantial fulfilment yet of an idea that the best way to transform an urban area, and to improve the lives around it with facilities and investment, is for commercial development to take the lead, while working closely with local authorities and local communities. It requires property companies to act like de facto municipalities, while making a profit for their backers. The idea is a manifestation of what Tony Blair called the “third way”, and David Cameron the “big society”, without achieving that much by way of tangible results.

The alternative, as was achieved in Covent Garden in the 1970s, and in the Coin Street area near Waterloo since the 1980s, would be for local communities to form their own development groups, which would change sites incrementally. This is championed by Michael Edwards, a lecturer in planning at University College London, who has been campaigning on King’s Cross for more than two decades. What we get now, he says, “is a very upmarket kind of development, whose services and facilities are for educated, sophisticated people with money in their pockets”.
