Yes I am aware of that. However, there has been a bridge at that location since Roman times, and for a long time it was the only way to cross the Thames. 'London Bridge' was for centuries one of the most famous bridges in Europe, the subject of songs and tales and one of the most important structures of early modern London. The London Bridge of today looks like a motorway flyover and is really a sorry sight compared to its predecessors. Tragic.

It'd be interesting to model rush hour pedestrian flow between London Bridge Station and the City, across the historic London Bridge

New Verde SW1 development in Victoria will have six roof garden terraces with amazing London views
City A.M.
31 October 2014


Quote:
It’s the perfect weather for it today, but anyone wanting to relax and enjoy the views from this stunning office roof garden will have to wait until spring 2016.

Lucky office workers will be able to see stunning views of Buckingham Palace, St James’ Park and across central London from six, yes six, roof gardens being built at the Verde SW1 development in Victoria.

The outdoor space will make up 20,000 of the 282,000 square foot of office space spread over 11 storeys, with terraces on each level from the sixth to the eleventh floor.

Can London build enough homes for 9m people? And where should the new houses be built?
City A.M.
31 October 2014


Quote:
As our population has increased, housebuilding has become a major political issue. There’s now a consensus that the capital needs to get building to accommodate a population that’s expected to grow by 920,000 by 2024.

But it’s not an impossible task, according to residential and commercial estate agent Stirling Ackroyd, who released their “New Build Bible” report last week. It uses projections from the Greater London Authority’s London Plan and analyses average existing site density (homes per hectares) versus the proportion of hectares likely to see development in all 625 wards to calculate where the most new homes are likely to be built over the next decade.

London Office Market Activity at Record Levels in Q3
World Property Journal
31 October 2014


Quote:
Based on a new Knight Frank commercial real estate report, absorption of office space in London reached 4.6 m sq ft during Q3 2014, the highest level since 2007, and 45% above the long-term average. The City, in particular, saw levels total over 3.0 m sq ft, a level not seen since 2000.

Figures revealed that during the third quarter of 2014, the leasing and investment markets across Central London continued to show confident market conditions. Both markets saw an increase in activity, specifically the leasing market showing a particularly strong quarter. The three largest deals of the quarter included Amazon taking 430,000 sq ft at Principal Place, M & G Investments completing their deal of 330,000 sq ft at 10 Fenchurch Avenue and Havas Media signing at 3 Pancras Square.
