The greenwich cluster uc with over 30 towers being built by Hong Kong developer
And the new Chinese business district, many plots, heights unknown.
Are there any other chinese developers/investors tower projects I've missed?

People who seem to have a problem with Chinese investment London show a complete lack of ignorance on Londons historic Real Investment. For decades money has flowed from all over the world into London ( and vise versa) be it US, Japanese, German, Spanish, Chinese, Australian, Irish, Italian, Greek, Canadian, Norwegian, Indian and now Far Eastern investment. Certain countries have been more prevalent and domineering at different times, if anyone thinks this is a bad thing they are severely misguided.

I have no problem with investment, however, there is a good kind and a harmful kind of "investment". Furthermore, since the City in many ways is the most powerful offshore financial centre in the world, it is extremely naive and misguided to look at global capital flows as superficially as many here do. London runs a global economic system that is undermining the economies of many countries both in the developed and the developing world.

I was referring to invest in real estate and infrastructure not the City’s Financial services.

Foreign money has always invested in buildings in London. If a Chinese or other non UK investor chooses to invest in a project that traditionally might have been the preserve of a UK developer/Investor that is not harmful, its perfectly natural and has been going on for a great deal longer than the current fashion to vilify all foreign invest. If London didn’t have overseas investment Canary Wharf for example would never have been built.

Yes, but let's not pretend they do not affect one another.

Indeed that is true. And I see no harm in it. Except when it affects government policy and weakens the democratic rights of ordinary Britons.

It's not "natural", no human action ever is. It's true that it has been going on for decades especially since the "Winbledonization" of the City. In my view no one is vilifying foreign investment, most are glorifying it and showing a complete lack of understanding of the global economy and economic history. That was my point.

Why don't you send the leading economists your obviously superior knowledge of the financial sector, I'm sure they would be most interested to see the value your expertise could add to their poor understanding of economics. All this time been wasted when all along all thry had to do was consult the economic genius on a random forum to tell the world where it's gone wrong

Earls Court Regeneration | Earls Court SW5

London forum thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1323805

Official website: http://www.myearlscourt.com/


Project facts
  • Borough: Hammersmith and Fulham and Kensington & Chelsea
  • Developer: Capital and Counties
  • Masterplan architect: Terry Farrell and Partners
  • Cost: £8 billion ($12bn)
  • Homes: 7,500
  • Floorspace: 938,000m²



The roof of the Earls Court 1 exhibition centre has been lowered in an eleven-hour, precision operation as part of the ongoing deconstruction of the Earls Court exhibition halls.

The 1,300 tonne roof measuring 126m long x 75m wide was slowly lowered from 54 metres above the ground in a carefully planned and controlled operation which was four years in the planning. Over the next six months, the reinforced concrete frames of the roof support and the walls will be safely removed, clearing the site for redevelopment. In recent months, the roof and red steel frames of EC2 have been deconstructed and the concrete floor is now being carefully removed. 99% of all materials removed will be recycled.

The EC1 roof lowering is a major milestone in the demolition of the main exhibition hall and for the Earls Court development. Both Earls Court 1 and 2 are due to be fully demolished by mid-2016, at which point the site will then be prepared for the next phase of construction.

Pictures of the roof lowering , from my earlscourt.

Before



After
