@yubnub: Unfortunately, there may not be an end to London's current construction boom, at least in the near future, aside from the towers currently rising or about to rise, a number of developments are now in the pipeline for the early 2020s, at the Isle of Dogs/docklands, a couple of tall towers in the City, at the South Bank to the east side of Blackfriars Bridge, Shoreditch former railway station redevelopment (this may start prior to 2020 though may take a few years to complete), and no doubt there will be more towers adding to existing clusters such as Vauxhall, E&C, and Croydon. If you want to see and photograph the existing new towers as they top out, Autumn of 2017 may be a good time to visit London. If you want to see them completed, perhaps late 2018/2019 may be better.

I tend to think that people in this forum are a bit too much enthusiast about this Construction boom in London ...

Probably because a buoyant regional construction industry is better than a depressed one.

I wish that this huge supply in new flats would be accessible for the middle class migrants , so that the important demand won't be ignored and provocate a speculative Bubble ...

High rise buildings by there nature are expensive to construct and maintain and so the olny way a developer makes its money back is by flogging them off as luxury flats. This is why greater government involvement in the housing sector is needed because they are unlikely to have the overwhelming need to make a large return.

I think you will find ALL housing in London is expensive as the population is rising 100,000 every year yet new housing units is barely reaching 25,000 a year so I think you would find if all these construction pictures suddenly dried up housing would be even more expense.

Exactly, and that's without considering the soaring in demand in the office market.

London Dominates The Global Luxury Property Market
Forbes
October 2015
Quote:
When the super rich snap up luxury real estate, more often than not, London is their city of choice.

According to Knight Frank, prices for prime real estate in the British capital have skyrocketed in recent times, rising faster than any other city over the past ten years. This is despite a steady stream of luxury housing becoming available on the market. High-rise and high-end skyscrapers are becoming increasingly common in London.

In 2009, 524 properties valued at $5 million and higher were sold in London, compared to 476 in Manhattan and 388 in Hong Kong. In 2014, the number of ultra-prime properties sold in London grew to a whopping 1,638, quite a distance ahead of the Big Apple’s 796. London’s dominance of the global luxury property market is set to continue for the next decade at least, though it could be surpassed by New York by 2024, driven by projects such as the 1,396 ft Park Avenue Tower, set to become the tallest residential building in the world.

6 of Top 10 Global Commercial Markets for Investment Intensity are in Europe
World Property Journal
October 2015
Quote:
According to JLL's latest City Investment Intensity Index, European cities are leading the way when it comes to pulling in more direct real estate investment in comparison to their economic size.

In the global study, six of the top ten cities for investment intensity are European, with Nordic and German business centers performing particularly well.

Of these six European cities, London, the world's most liquid and transparent real estate market, has maintained its position at the top of the Index for the last three quarters, whilst Munich comes 2nd , Oslo 4th, Frankfurt 7th, Copenhagen 8th and Stockholm 9th.

Vibrant and with strong technology credentials, the European cities leading the Index also share the qualities of being transparent and scalable with a good quality of life, factors which are increasingly being incorporated into investment strategies.

Camden Tube refurbishment: Transport for London proposes "substantial" upgrade of north London station

Transport for London has set out its plan for a major overhaul of Camden Town Tube station to make it fit for the volume of traffic the north London stop receives each day.

TfL said the station, which is used by more than 80,000 people a day, would "completely transformed" under the plans, which have been today opened for public consultation.

Improvements include a new second entrance and exit to the station; three new escalators; step-free access from the street to trains, with two new lifts; more space to change between trains and for the station to remain open during busy periods by removing the need for frequent crowd control measures.

Citic Construction in talks with three UK contractors over JV on ABP's £1.7bn development

A major Chinese contractor will build the first phase of one of London’s highest-profile mixed-use projects, Construction News can reveal.

Citic Construction is understood to have already secured a spot as part of a joint venture on ABP’s £1.7bn Royal Albert Dock development.

The Chinese construction giant is in talks with three major UK firms – Brookfield Multiplex, Laing O’ Rourke and Mace – over partnering for the scheme.

ABP has told Citic it must select at least one of these UK companies to work with on the first phase of the project, which has a total construction value of around £240m.
