I didn't, but I'm not against it, I do support it.

In the long run, in a world where cities will increasingly compete with each other, those who preserve their historic buildings are going to be worth much more.

Perhaps from a sentimental value.

When you say 'worth much more', what metric are you talking about? Economic output? Tourism? Some kind of vague, undefined sense of value?

It's a pretty random project but its location will make it look better.

Thanks SE9 but those links don't show what I'm looking for, ie, they show wards not defined neighbourhood's.

Wards are the official subdivisions of local authorities, with defined boundaries.

Neighbourhoods are historic entities, more often used in common speech than wards, but they generally have vaguely defined boundaries.

McAleer & Rushe land £27m Marylebone job
Building
17 February 2015


Quote:
McAleer & Rushe has signed a £27m contract to build a luxury residential development in Marylebone, west London for Clivedale Properties.

The block of 22 flats - designed by architect DSDHA and interior designer FKA Architecture & Interiors - will be built on the former central London headquarters of property firm Colliers.

The development includes studios, one-to-three bedroom apartments and penthouses, a 25-metre pool, gym, spa, treatment rooms, gardens and a residents’ lounge.

The building will be fitted with a glazed terracotta external cladding.

Martin Magee, managing director of McAleer & Rushe Contracts UK, said: “This is a great project to be associated with as it contributes so positively to its environs by enhancing the prestige of this residential neighbourhood.

“Our construction business has made a strong start to the year having recently secured a number of contracts across the hotel, office, student housing and residential sectors - not just in London but across the UK”.

The upmarket chain has "agreed the design and layout" for a five-storey anchor store in the development with Westfield and partner developers Hammerson, John Burton told a public inquiry into the plans today.

The inquiry, which began on Tuesday, will hear the case for and objections to a Croydon Council compulsory purchase order to allow the developers - united under the name the Croydon Partnership - to buy the Whitgift Centre and surrounding land.
