^ Yes, if by "megacity" he means cities with an metro population of 10 million+. They are London, Paris, Moscow, and Istanbul.

"The Shard Smashes Record for Office Rents" // City A.M. Article

Link: http://www.cityam.com/223030/the-shard-skyscraper-smashes-record-for-office-rents

I thought this was an interesting article, considering how much doubt people had about The Shard finding tenants. 'Build it, and they will come' comes to mind. Either way, it's a nice bit of news.

Quote:
A letting at The Shard skyscraper in London Bridge has smashed price records for the South Bank and the City, as the hunt for office space in the capital heats up.

German-listed IT company Leonteq Securities is understood to have struck a deal to take the entire 26th floor of the tower for over £90 per square feet.

The highest rent achieved so far has been for the penultimate floor of British Land and Oxford Properties’ Leadenhall Building – also known as the Cheesegrater – for £90 per sq ft to Affinity Shipping.

The deal means that office space in The Shard is close to 70 per cent let or under, with only five complete floors remaining, ranging from £60 to 85 per square feet in price. Other tenants include Duff & Phelps, Al Jazeera and Campari Group

Leonteq is also the latest company to move away from the West End, where around 45 per cent of The Shard’s tenants were previously based.
Although a record for the City, £90 per sq ft appears good value when compared to the the West End where rents are sky-high and office space in short supply.

Recent research from BNP Paribas Real Estate said vacancy rates in the West End stood at 3.9 per cent in the second quarter, while prime rents hit a record high of £125 per sq ft. That compares with 5.7 per cent in the City, where the average rent is £65 per sq ft.

Irvine Sellar, the property developer behind The Shard, said: “We pioneered the concept of the vertical city at The Shard and it is a huge endorsement of our vision that it continues to attract European industry leaders like Leonteq.

“Interest in the remaining space continues to be strong with potential occupiers not only attracted to The Shard’s growing community, but London Bridge’s strong transport infrastructure and exceptional social amenities that will only continue to evolve as businesses and their employees continue to move into the area,” he added.

It's always the same. People said the Millennium Dome was a white elephant too.

Now it is the worlds leading venue for concerts, selling more tickets per year than any other arena in the world.

People will always doubt London. And London will always smash them back in the face with their concerns… for she is a beast that cannot be tamed.

"Demolition Begins On London's Smallest Skyscraper" // Londonist Article // 22 Bishopsgate

Link: https://londonist.com/2015/08/demoli...est-skyscraper

Demolition on 'The Stump' has begun. The Pinnacle Dream is officially over . Onwards and upwards with '22 Bishopsgate' though. Completion is expected for 2019.

Quote:
It was supposed to be the tallest building in the City of London. Instead, the Pinnacle skyscraper grew to just nine floors before falling victim to financial wrangling. Often referred to as The Stump, its stunted lift core has stood as a concrete folly ever since work halted more than three years ago.

Its days are numbered. Scaffolding is now climbing up the core in preparation for demolition. The replacement building will have a very different design. The old core must be pummelled to rubble and a new one constructed.
Take a look at the above link for pictures.

100% agree. The track record is great.

Whenever I read one of these articles, I always imagine some tenant negotiating team being hauled into an office somewhere...

The Millennium Dome was a white elephant, though, because the government at the time wasted nearly £1bn on the overall project, whereas the construction of the building itself only cost something like £40m. Huge amounts of money were poured down the drain. It was a complete outrage, and surprisingly unreported until many years later.
