Clapham One.

Looks like a very good, sophisticated project. Construction starts in March 2010.

Wembley is meeting all design agendas; 27 floors 200 bed hotel, 140 apartments, 10,765 sqft of retail: Wembley more than just numbers.

The issue at Wembley was a unique one. Located at the junction of the North Circular and Harrow Road, the site was caught between two conflicting design objectives. On the one hand, the site demands a bold statement scheme to create a strong visual presence to the North Circular, with taller buildings to act as a barrier between the busy roads and the housing to the rear of the site. But on the other, the low level housing to the north requires a completely different, smaller, humanscale solution. An existing 20-storey office tower on the site - to which the new development would need to relate, creates an interesting point from which to start the design process. One solution currently being considered is to mirror the form of the existing building with a new, tall residential building. This creates a strong relationship with the existing building, while releasing the ground level for pedestrian improvements, with better linkages, and enhanced routes to the nearby tube station. The new building is sited carefully, to ensure minimal impact on the smaller scale buildings close by.

Matthew Beard, Sports News Correspondent Matthew Beard

His other designs have included the Gherkin and “wobbly” Millennium bridge, but now architect Ken Shuttleworth has moved on to multi-armed ocean life.

He wants to create a building, already nicknamed “The Octopus”, to act as a west London gateway welcoming visitors into the capital for the Olympics. Developers said the structure could be completed in time for London 2012 if they get the go-ahead soon.

The 170ft building near the Chiswick roundabout would contain 25,000 square feet of floor space across five storeys.

The multi-million-pound Octopus would house offices, and the outside would be used as an advertising hoarding.

A mean time in Greenwich: AEG's O2 convention centre
http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/standa...tion-centre.do
18.12.09

A huge convention centre able to hold more than 3000 delegates is to be built next to the O2 Arena by the Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG), the US operators of the highly successful entertainment complex.

The plans are being finalised and will be revealed by AEG in February, when they are submitted to Greenwich council for approval.

A source who has seen the drawings prepared by architects Lifschutz Davidson says the 300,000 sq ft centre will be built on the riverbank to the east of the O2, adjacent to an 18-storey hotel containing 450 rooms.

"It is huge, with the biggest clear-span space you have ever seen," he said. "It will become the best spot in London to hold a conference, exhibition, awards ceremony, or global convention."

Last month O2 chief executive David Campbell fleetingly mentioned that AEG were to build the hotel and conference centre. But the sheer scale of the development by the world's largest leisure operator has never been revealed until now.

"These plans will call into question the wisdom of plans to expand Excel in the Royal Docks to include a convention centre" said an expert. "And it will sure beat going to the Grosvenor House over and over again."

The news will also boost the fortunes of Lend Lease and Quintain. They are the developers who signed a 25-year deal with government in May 2002 under the name Meridian Delta, to build 7000 new homes and 3.4 million sq ft of office space on the 190 acres of state-owned land at the top of the Greenwich peninsula.

It will also be good news for the Government. Former Dome Minister Lord Falconer included clauses in the deal that should reap the taxpayer a £550 million windfall. Meridian Delta agreed to give the Treasury £20 for each square foot developed - plus a profit share.

A visit to the site on Tuesday confirmed momentum is building after a slow start, lengthened by the credit crunch. More than 1900 Transport for London staff are now working in offices built by Meridian Delta, which has just let space in an adjoining block to Greenwich council at a price "a bit higher" than the £29.50 per sq ft being paid by TfL, says Nick Shattock, deputy chief executive of Quintain.

"We should have built another 400,000 sq ft of office space by 2012," says Shattock. "By then around 1000 of the 10,000 homes will be built."

He says 92 of 229 flats being built by Bellway have sold off plan to overseas buyers at around £500 per sq ft.

Plans to build up to 30-stories high facing Canary Wharf and sell at no more than £650 per sq ft have also been drawn up.

Those paying attention will notice the 7000 homes envisaged in 2004 have mysteriously swollen to 10,000 today. What may help explain the swelling is that in 2002 prices of not much more than £350 per sq ft were envisaged.

Art boss has designs on regeneration
Six-storey workshop and students’ flats could form part of £30m scheme for Finsbury Park
[IMG]http://i49.************/330qkrc.jpg[/IMG]

THE man dubbed the picture framer to the stars, with clients including David Hockney, Damian Hirst and the late Francis Bacon, is part of a massive £30million proposed development aimed at regenerating Finsbury Park.
John Jones, 62, this week launched the scheme which will include a new £9million six-storey framing workshop behind Finsbury Park station, on a site where he currently employs a staff of 80 in a two-storey building.
He is a partner with developers, Spiritbond Finsbury Park Ltd.
As well as the workshop, they want to build accommodation for 475 students along with 15 affordable flats and two shops on the site at 2-14 Morris Place.
The public were able to study details for the scheme that will occupy almost two acres of mainly industrial space off Stroud Green Road, at an exhibition by developers on Tuesday.
People will be able to lodge objections to the entire scheme when an outline planning application is submitted to Islington council for approval in the new year.
Mr Jones’s life is very much a rags-to-riches story.
Islington born and bred, he left school in Stroud Green at 16 with no qualifications to set up a picture framers with his brother in their garden shed in Essex Road.
Today the family firm has a £5million turnover and is responsible for framing some of the world’s masterpieces, including those at the Tate Gallery.
Mr Jones runs the company with his two sons Matt and Kristian and his daughter Kelly. “We’re a family business with our heart set in Finsbury Park. When we first came here 25 years ago we had a staff of 25. Today there are 80 of us and our current workshop of 38,000 sq feet is no longer big enough.
“Finsbury Park is beginning to improve after years of being in the doldrums. The railway station regeneration was the first big improvement to the area. We hope our scheme will also add to the improvements.”
The scheme is one of three major developments being planned for the area.
The other is City North, involving Paul Morris, whose family founded Islington Business Design Centre at the Angel. That scheme involves a large homes and shops development off Fonthill Road.
A third scheme is the redevelopment of the five-storey former Sense Building in Fonthill Road to include two theatres.
Finsbury Park Labour councillor Phil Kelly said: “I’m very pleased that suddenly there are major plans to improve an area which has been neglected for many years. All these schemes will have to be judged on their merit when they come to planning committee.

This is the National Audit Office building that is being or has been renovated. It went over budget which is not good for auditors!
