"Piano originally planned a 380 metre tall tower as a replacement for an earlier design by Broadway Malyan. This height was reduced after much consultation with the planning authorities as it was considered excessive"

St. Modwen Venture Weighs Sale of $893 Million London Site

St. Modwen Properties and France’s Vinci SA are considering the sale of a 10-acre (4-hectare) site near Battersea Power Station in London, the U.K. developer said on Tuesday.

The plot at New Covent Garden Market has planning approval for more than 1,800 homes and is valued at 621 million pounds ($893 million), Birmingham-based St. Modwen said in a presentation to investors. The site may be offered toward the middle of the year, Chief Executive Officer William Oliver said on a call with analysts.

“This is 10-acres of land we’ll be putting on the market next to the American Embassy, overlooking the Thames, overlooking the Houses of Parliament,” Oliver said. “Even on a European basis, it is one of the primest pieces of land that will come to the market in the next year or two.”

Developers are competing to attract buyers for 18,000 new homes planned in the Nine Elms district, which stretches from Battersea Power Station to Vauxhall. Demand for London homes under construction slumped by 19 percent in the fourth quarter as rising sales taxes and global market turmoil damped demand.

Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne will raise the stamp-duty rate for purchases of buy-to-let and second homes to as much as 15 percent for the portion above 1.5 million pounds from April.

New Covent Garden Market Redovelopment | Nine Elms SW8

London forum thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=993667

Official website: http://brand.newcoventgardenmarket.com/


Project facts
  • Cost: £2 billion ($3.2bn)
  • Homes: 2,250
  • Various towers, up to 170m in height
  • Improved factillates for market traders
  • A range of cafes and restaurants known as the Food Quarter and a culinary school



St Modwen to put £620m Nine Elms Square up for sale, paving the way for next year's biggest land deal

Quote:
St Modwen has announced plans to put its £616m Nine Elms Square Northern Site residential scheme up for sale in what it predicts will mark one of the biggest land deals in the market this year or next.

The regeneration specialist and its French joint venture partner Vinci are carrying out a complete overhaul of New Covent Garden Market, the UK’s largest fruit and vegetable market, which will take 10 years to complete.

The 57 acre site will also include offices, shops and three residential "neighbourhoods" comprising 3,000 new homes – of which Nine Elms Square is the largest and most valuable.

St Modwen’s chief executive Bill Oliver, who also announced plans to step down this year, told City A.M.: “We are exploring options in the market place. An outright sale is one option or a level of continued involvement depending on how involved the prospective owners would like us to be.”

Oliver hailed the site as “one of the best pieces of real estate available in the UK and in Europe" and said he was confident of attracting several prospective buyers.

It's amazing how some buildings seem to go up really quickly and some take longer to get started then they do to get built.

Wood Wharf is an impressive site. Won't be too long before we see structures rising from the reclaimed dock.

Let's try and keep photo sizes standard in this thread!
