From CITY AM.
Helical Bar announces plans to kickstart London projects
Friday, 27th November 2009
PROPERTY
COMMERCIAL property firm Helical Bar plans to kickstart its development pipeline in the next 12 to 18 months as the UK market rebounds and the company may raise its full-year dividend.

“Let’s hope we can [raise the full-year dividend]. We usually, and very rarely not, annually raise the dividend by 10 to 12 per cent, so that would be a figure we are aiming to,” said chief executive Michael Slade.

In its half-year results announced yesterday Helical said its interim dividend would be maintained at 1.75p a share, having paid an unchanged final dividend for last year of 2.75p.

Slade said over the next three years Helical would spend the rump of its £500m of available funds.

“We’re looking, at the West End and the City, to be doing something in about a year’s time,” he said, adding Helical was bidding strongly on a West End building that was due to become vacant in 18 months.

He also said a 275,000 sq ft office development planned for Mitre Square would likely be started in 18 months, having been on the backburner for two years.

http://www.helical.co.uk/hb/pp/properties/officedev/

In the half year to end-September Helical saw a 92.5 per cent fall in underlying profits after it booked further writedowns in the value of its assets in the run-up to the end of the UK property slump.

After property writedowns, loss on sale of investment properties and investment gains, Helical’s loss before tax was £8.8m, against a £12.7m profit a year earlier.

The company recorded a gain of £1.8m in the six months to 30 September, against £23.9m a year earlier.

Net gearing was reduced to 83 per cent, from 95 per cent, with the repayment of £63m of debt.

Bank of China moves into One Lothbury

Friday, 27th November 2009
PROPERTY
ASHLEY ARMSTRONG
THE Bank of China, the world’s fourth largest bank, yesterday signed an £86m deal for the prestigious City building One Lothbury.

The Bank of China, which currently occupies 48,000 sq ft at 90 Cannon Street, will move between 250 and 300 of its UK staff into its new flagship office, with the hope of expanding its staff base further.

Bank of China’s Wenbo How said that the move is part of the bank’s plans to expand in the UK and Europe.

He added: “We have the best building in China, Hong Kong and we wanted the best in London. The Bank of China has enough capital to pay for a brilliant building and we believe the City is the place to be.”

The Bank of China has been looking since July for a stand-out City building, but favoured traditional architecture – of which there is limited supply in the City.

CB Richard Ellis and law firm Faegre & Benson acted for the Bank of China, while Drivers Jonas and Cushman & Wakefield acted for owner Westfield Investment.

CBRE senior director Stephen Pearson said: “Combined with other recent large transactions, it is a sign that there is regained confidence in the market from overseas investors and the deal particularly signifies the growing importance of China-based companies in the London economy.”

The deal follows a surge of property deals in the City after Nomura’s take-up of Watermark Place and Bank of Tokyo Mitsubishi at the Ropemaker.

The sale of One Lothbury, which is opposite the Bank of England, is yet another sign of how the City’s most iconic buildings are being snapped up by foreign companies.

The large site directly behind Broadgate that has had several proposals over the years has seen a KPF designed scheme for buildings up to 24 storeys submitted for planning. 130m in height.

Thankfully the row of Georgian Terraces on Sun St that have had an uncertain future will now be retained along with the corner pub.

Activity at the site of the 181m St George's Wharf:

Maybe it's just preparatory work - but given that the serious construction work at the other side of this huge development has just finished, now would be the time to get going, if they're willing to brave the recession. Something's happening at any rate.

This curious building next door in the existing development (which is still fenced off) is, I suspect, destined to be a show flat / marketing suite for the new tower. It's the same size and shape as half the tower, it doesn't really fit in the existing development (blocks the riverside access, and the view from quite a few of the existing flats), and developer St George built a similar free-standing show flat at the Imperial Wharf development (which is still standing, but probably not for long now that they've sold all the flats).

Looks like prep work has begun.

TOWER HAMLETS SET FOR NEW STEEL TOWER ICON

Tower Hamlets residents will see a new iconic East End landmark take shape next week, which aims to boost tourism and business in the borough.

The eye-catching illuminated steel tower will form part of the Brick Lane Cultural Trial - part of a major investment in the Spitalfields and Banglatown area. The trail is set to encourage inward investment and increase business as visitors explore the borough.

Work on the base is almost complete, with the seven sections of the 30 metre tower being fitted together and erected early next week. Other work on the trail is dependent on planning permission, but could include new arches that will frame the trail. There will also be special information display boards, shedding light on the rich and diverse heritage of the area.

Funded from £8.6m received for the local community through the development at Bishops Square, in Spitalfields, residents will also see vast improvements to their parks, streets and business. Improvements range from better open spaces at Chicksand, Hanbury, Arnold Circus and Holland Estate, a new building for Osmani Youth Centre, business support, the restoration of 17 Grade II listed buildings, resurfaced roads, additional CCTV and much more.

Leader of Tower Hamlets Council, Councillor Lutfur Rahman, said: "These fantastic projects, made possible through the developments at Bishop Square, show the huge benefits that new buildings can bring the community.

"It's important that developers give something back to the community, and the planning team makes sure that their contributions offset the disruption and additional pressures their developments place on our services."

Lead Member for Culture, Cllr Rofique U Ahmed, added: "The Brick Lane Cultural Trial will draw visitors into the area, helping to boost local businesses."

This is one of the largest single payments from a developer that has ever been received by a council, and it has to be spent on the area that was affected by the development. The Bishops Square section 106 project will be taking place over the next couple of years. Special signs have been erected at some of the sites to highlight works to residents.

Work begins this week on erecting a giant 90ft ‘iconic’ steel tower next to a mosque in the middle of the Brick Lane conservation area in London’s East End.

The structure which will resemble the shape of a minaret is being erected inches from the wall of the Jamme Masjid mosque, a converted former synagogue founded originally as an 18th century Huguenot church, after planning permission was given by Tower Hamlets council.

Council Leader Lutfur Rahman visited the site last week when the base was completed, where he met Muslim community leaders.

The steel structure will dominate the skyline of the Georgian conservation area around Spitalfields, the historic Huguenot weaving district, and is being billed by the Town Hall as “a new iconic East End landmark.”

The seven sections of the tower are being fitted together and erected during the week.

The local authority also intends to erect new arches along Brick Lane, all paid for by £8.6 million ‘planning gain’ cash from the nearby Bishops Square development on the ‘City Fringe’ near Liverpool Street station.

“It’s important developers give something back to the community,” said Cllr Rahman. “The council planning team makes sure their contributions offset the disruption and additional pressures their developments place on our services.”

The cash from Bishops Square, one of the largest single payments from a developer ever received by a local authority, is also paying for open spaces on the nearby Chicksand and Holland housing estates and a new building for Osmani youth centre.

PLANS FOR EARLS COURT HOTEL GIVEN GO-AHEAD


On behalf of Think Developments and Earls Court and Olympia Group, Savills has successfully obtained planning permission for a major new apart-hotel development, adjacent to the Olympia Exhibition Centre.

The proposal had been called in by the Secretary of State. The decision on the site known as 'G-Gate' adjacent to the western flank of the Olympia Exhibition Centre (OEC) on Hammersmith Road, allows the construction of a 259 room apart-hotel above a marshalling yard for the OEC and a 69.5sqm commercial unit.

The application was approved by the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham Planning Committee and by the Mayor in September 2008. It was subsequently called-in by the Secretary of State on a number of grounds relating to compliance with PPS1, PPG13, PPG15, the DCLG's Good Practice Guide on Planning for Tourism, the LBHF UDP and the London Plan.

The Public Inquiry took place in July 2009 and the Secretary of State confirmed the recommendation of the Inspector and approved the scheme on 4 December 2009.

The Secretary of State concluded that the proposed development would be a sustainable and well located form of development that would complement the OEC. It would be of a high quality and inclusive design, improving the character and quality of the area and enhancing the setting of the adjacent listed buildings at Olympia.

Nick Green, Savills Planning Director, said: "We are delighted at this decision, which enables the delivery of a high quality apart-hotel that will improve facilities at the OEC as well as improving the character and quality of the local area.

"The scheme was the subject of detailed discussions with the Council and the GLA, as well as extensive public consultation, and we are pleased that the Secretary of State has agreed with the original decision."

Savills advised on planning and the architect was Glenn Howells.
