^ Agreed, it's pretty bland. That corner has been pretty scruffy looking and in need of improvement since I first saw it (a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away), but this is not what it needed.

Not to mention that new glass tube entrance does nothing for me either. I'd almost say the fountain was better (almost).

`Full' Heathrow Adds 1.6 Million Passengers Aided by Bigger Jets

London’s Heathrow Airport, which has operated close to the capacity of its two runways since the start of the decade, boosted passenger numbers to just short of 75 million last year as airlines deployed bigger jets to beat the cap on flights.

Europe’s busiest hub added 1.6 million passengers, a 2.2 percent gain, even as plane movements increased just 0.3 percent, it said in a statement Monday.

By the year’s end, more than 20 Airbus Group SE A380 superjumbos were landing every day, helping to lift the average number of seats per flight to 209.

U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron has delayed a decision on whether to allow the construction of a third runway at Heathrow until after London’s mayoral election later this year.

The airport says it needs a new strip to lift passenger numbers above 135 million by 2050, while opponents say the 18 billion-pound ($26 billion) plan is too costly and will increase noise in a heavily urban area.

Flights to the Persian Gulf states -- home to some of the world’s largest international carriers -- as well as emerging markets were among the main drivers of growth in 2015, Heathrow said.

Passenger volumes rose 14 percent on routes to China and 8 percent to Latin America. The airport handled 1.5 million metric tons of cargo.

Chief Executive John Holland-Kaye said in the statement that Heathrow’s expansion plan will make Britain “the best connected country in the world.”

^ A minor point, but 215 Euston Road is not the site of the new building it's where they are currently located.

Great, I see you updated it.

Deutsche Bank Fund Buys $537 Million London Office Project

Deutsche Bank AG’s asset-management unit agreed to buy a building that will house the Financial Conduct Authority in London’s Stratford district for more than 370 million pounds ($537 million).

The Deutsche Bank unit will buy the 19-story property, which is under construction, on behalf of one of the lender’s German funds, Deutsche Bank and sellers Lend Lease Group and London and Continental Railways said by e-mail on Tuesday.

“Buying this building is a great opportunity to invest in one of London’s emerging markets at an early stage and has great potential for strong growth as occupiers are attracted by the diversity and vibrancy of the area,” James Petit, Deutsche Bank’s head of real estate for the U.K. and Ireland, said in the statement.

The FCA, which regulates financial markets in the U.K., is due to move into the property in east London in 2018.

Companies are moving out of central London after a shortage of office space caused rental prices to surge. Average office rents in Stratford are around 30 pounds to 40 pounds a square foot compared with 65 pounds to 70 pounds for similar properties in the City of London financial district, according to estimates by Mat Oakley, head of European commercial research at Savills Plc in London.

A unit of Legal & General Group Plc last week bought the Transport for London building at the development next to London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park from Lend Lease and LCR for 246 million pounds.

The U.K. real estate business of Deutsche Bank’s asset management arm had 5.4 billion euros of assets under management as of Sept. 30, according to the statement.
