Lipton Rogers and Axa close in on Pinnacle deal
Property Week
16 February 2015
Quote:
Developer Lipton Rogers and fund manager Axa are closing in on a deal to takeover the development of the stalled Pinnacle tower in London.

Lipton Rogers, alongside a consortium of investors led by French fund manager Axa Real Estate, have been talks to buy the Pinnacle tower since late last year, with a deal initially expected before Christmas.

Following protracted negotiations a deal is now expected to be struck in the next two weeks.

The Axa consortium – understood to comprise around four overseas pension funds - has entered a bid of around £220m to buy the site on 22-24 Bishopsgate in the City of London. HSH Nordbank, which issued the £145m loan to fund the £210m purchase of the site in 2007, will be repaid as part of the deal.

I don't really see a problem with imitation architecture. Half the time people moan that something with period features is being removed.. so for it to be modernised in a better way and to keep the style should be praised.

Georgian is native to the UK anyway, so.. its in perfect keeping. The inside and the operation of the buildings will be the vastly different parts.. I imagine that the new one will be far more spacious and energy efficient than the one previous.

But "imitation architecture" is what's done with modernist buildings, too. It's the same same stuff since decades, since Bauhaus and others went through. If imitation of classical styles works fine, it should be done. Here are loads of very good examples of new classical buildings (and some mediocre or cruel ones as well). Architecture isn't about (re)inventing something or creating "public art" all the time, it's about creating quality places for people.

First trials of driverless vehicles get underway
Royal Greenwich
February 2015


Quote:
Government ministers today launched the start of driverless car trials in Royal Greenwich.

The Royal Borough of Greenwich is the location and the local authority partner in the GATEway trials (Greenwich Automated Transport Environment project) - one of three projects chosen by the Government to deliver demonstrations of automated vehicles in urban environments.

UK's first fully driverless cars

The GATEway project includes the testing of a fully driverless vehicle named the Meridian Shuttle, which will be evaluated in various scenarios over the next two years. This morning it took its inaugural journey at Greenwich Peninsula.

Over the next two years the GATEway project will:
  • Demonstrate automated transport systems in a range of environments
  • Explore the legal and technical changes required before automated vehicles are introduced
  • Explore the reactions of pedestrians, drivers and other road users to automated vehicles

Royal Greenwich is the ideal location for the trials to explore how driverless vehicles might work in an urban setting. The Royal Borough of Greenwich will be examining all aspects of the trials – from potential impacts on road layout, car park positions and legislation to looking at how the vehicles could bring significant benefits in regard to road safety and air quality.

Greenwich "proud to be at the forefront of technology"

Councillor Denise Hyland, Leader of the Royal Borough of Greenwich said: "It's thrilling to see these trials get underway in Greenwich, really cementing the area's reputation as a place of innovation and advancing new technology. Greenwich Peninsula provides the ideal location for us to explore what this technology can offer people and how it will eventually be implemented in the real world.

"We're proud here in Greenwich to be at the forefront of developing this technology. We offer the ideal setting for these trials: an expanding population, a complex urban environment and a variety of existing and expanding transport links, which will really tell us what we need to know about putting driverless vehicles into an urban setting."

This tower is so frustrating. I don't pay any attention to it anymore until it starts to rise.
