I know some here lament the loss of the old Odeon, but I think the new one looks fine - there's even a Decoesque nod there.

The new Odeon looks great. If you're going to tear down old buildings, this is at least the way to replace them.

I have updates to post, but wide image means I'll defer them until the next page.

More fuel for the Blossom Street cause:


WEF: London tech sector is the epicentre of European Tech
Tech City News
30 September 2015


Quote:
The London tech sector is “the epicentre of the European tech and startup scene” with Tech City continuing to help make the UK become one of the most competitive technology markets on the planet, according to a new report from the World Economic Forum.

The Global Competitiveness Index 2015-2016 ranks the UK fifth in the world for the availability of latest technologies, eighth for cluster development and 10th for capacity for innovation, the report found.

However the report found that the UK’s overall economy slipped one place to 10th in the index, despite improving its performance in many areas. Strengths include solid institutions and some of the best universities in the world but weak spots include its macroeconomic environment, with high government deficits meaning the public debt has doubled since 2007.

The report said: The UK has created a good set of conditions for its vibrant service sector to develop and for London to become the epicentre of the European tech and startup scene.

Get West London
30 September 2015


Quote:
Businesses are invited to apply for office space at the new Wembley Park development

Property developer Quintain have announced the release of business and office space at its flagship Wembley Park development.

Guests including broadcaster Clare Balding attended a launch on Wednesday September 23 where details were revealed about the offering which sees Quintain partner with Colliers International and Cushman & Wakefield for the new London business destination.

The location is situated 12 minutes from central London and is pitched at large companies who want what Quintain describe as a “well-connected and competitively priced, modern, London HQ”.

The offices will reportedly be built bespoke to the individual requirement with prices at less than £40 per sq-ft.

At Wembley, they want the stadium and arch to form the visual pinnacle.

Listing refused: Minister ignores HE on Spence’s Hyde Park Barracks
Architects Journal
1 October 2015
Quote:
Culture minister Tracey Crouch has rejected proposals to list Basil Spence’s Hyde Park Barracks in central London, despite the bid’s endorsement by Historic England

Crouch was not persuaded by Historic England’s recommendations that the landmark Brutalist tower deserved a grade II listing.

The Twentieth Century (C20) Society, which had made the initial listing application, described the decision as ‘outrageous’ and driven by a government desire to see the the Ministry of Defence site redeveloped for luxury housing.

Completed by Spence in 1970, the barracks includes a 33-storey residential tower and sits on a site that has been home to the Household Cavalry since 1795. However its Knightsbridge location would offer the potential to develop some of the capital’s most expensive new homes and it is understood around 20 developer-led teams are looking at the plot.

Quinlan and Francis Terry Architects – working with developer Bruce Rippon – has already revealed plans to replace the barracks with an enormous classically-styled residential block, while other proposals have been mooted.

Matthew Lloyd and Mae get green light for HS2 replacement homes
Building Design

Quote:
Mae and Matthew Lloyd Architects have won planning for 116 homes near Euston station to replace some of those due to be demolished by HS2.

The two practices were appointed following a competition by Camden council which managed to secure funding from HS2.

The homes will be built in blocks ranging from three to 11 storeys on eight sites scattered around Regent’s Park Estate.

The proposed scale and character of each new building directly responds to the adjacent existing context, said the architects.
