That would be demolished. There's a early 20th section that faces onto London road and a post-war extension on pread street.

London Housing Frenzy to Return as Lenders Loosen Mortgage Terms

The brief respite seen in London’s tearaway housing market after regulators imposed tighter lending criteria last year is coming to an end.

Lower mortgage costs and a shortage of homes are fueling speculation that values in the U.K. capital are set to spike again. Lenders are also loosening borrowing conditions, with loan-to-income ratios rising for the first time in a year in the third quarter, according to the Bank of England.

That’s prompting brokers to increase price forecasts for London homes, which cost an average of 522,000 pounds ($808,000).

The turnaround risks undermining efforts by central bank policy makers last October to prevent a credit-fueled housing bubble by restricting the amounts people can borrow compared to their salary.

Chinese developer ABP (China) Holdings Group Ltd. has brought in a unit of state-backed Citic Group as an investor in a project to transform London’s Royal Albert Dock into a financial center after the estimated cost surged and work was delayed.

ABP, which signed an agreement with London officials in 2013, formed a venture with Citic Construction Co. “to ensure the project will go forward,” it said in an e-mailed statement Wednesday.

The venture will invest in and hold a 25 percent stake in ABP’s London unit, ABP said without disclosing Citic’s investment breakdown in the dock project. Citic Construction will serve as a contractor for the development, according to the statement.

The agreement was part of a string of deals Chinese President Xi Jinping signed during a state visit to London this week that would boost investment in the U.K., and helped revive a stalled redevelopment of the dock in the city’s Docklands area.
