Record London Luxury-Home Pipeline Would Cover Hyde Park Twice

The record number of luxury homes planned in London, equivalent to more than double the size of the city’s Hyde Park, is raising the prospect that developers may be forced to turn some projects into offices as demand falls, according to consulting firm Arcadis NV.

Plans are in the pipeline for 35,000 high-end properties worth almost 77 billion pounds ($108 billion) in the coming decade, 40 percent more than in 2014, Arcadis said in a report Monday.

The homes would span more than 40 million square feet (3.7 million square meters), compared with Hyde Park’s 15 million square feet.

The surge in supply comes just as demand is weakening, with international investors deserting the market in the wake of higher property taxes and slumping commodity prices.

Developers are already offering discounts of as much as 20 percent on bulk purchases of upscale apartments. Arcadis defines luxury homes as those priced at 1,350 pounds a square foot or more.

“It remains to be seen how the market responds to the new set of challenges being thrown at it,” Mark Cleverly, Arcadis head of commercial development said in a statement, citing land, materials and labor cost inflation.

“This, coupled with a recent gradual easing off of buyer demand could affect margins and mean developers opt to convert their developments to target the more buoyant office and commercial markets.”

Almost a third of the luxury homes planned in the next decade will be developed in the district it terms Chelsea & Fulham, with more than a quarter planned for the south bank of the River Thames stretching from Battersea to Tower Bridge, Arcadis said. Home prices in Chelsea fell 2.5 percent in the year through March, broker Knight Frank LLP said in a report last week.

The number of homes in the pipeline in Chelsea & Fulham has more than doubled since 2014 to 10,914, Arcadis said. About three-quarters of them are part of Capital & Counties Plc’s development in the Earls Court neighborhood.

Jefferies LLC analyst Mike Prew cut his target price for the company in February, predicting the value of the development site could drop to 30 million pounds from 50 million pounds per acre within 12 months.

Mortgages for Million-Pound London Homes Highest in 10 Years

Homeowners are stretching themselves to buy the most expensive properties in London.

Fifty-eight percent of people who bought homes for 1 million pounds ($1.42 million) or more in the capital last year had to use a mortgage, according to data compiled by Hamptons International.

That was the highest proportion in 10 years and compares with 31 percent of buyers during the financial crisis in 2009, the broker said.

“In the more expensive parts of London and south east England, a 1 million-pound home is now more likely to be a normal home rather than an oligarch’s mansion,” Fionnuala Earley, director of research at the broker, said in the report.

The average loan-to-value for a home costing from 1 million pounds to 2 million pounds is 40 percent, the Hamptons data show. Over the last eight years, demand from buyers has risen most for mortgages with LTVs of less than 40 percent. “The need to borrow that little bit extra has crept in at the higher end” of the market, according to the report.

Billionaires Win Approval to Turn London Tower Into Apartments

Billionaire property investors David and Simon Reuben won approval to turn one of the oldest office towers in London’s Westminster borough into luxury apartments.

The brothers will be allowed to turn the Millbank Tower complex near the Palace of Westminster into 207 homes with a skybar and a 150-bedroom hotel, the borough council decided at a meeting Tuesday.

Soaring prices for luxury homes encouraged developers to seek to turn office space into 16,600 new homes in greater London in the two years through May 2015. Falling demand, rising supply and an increase in office rents is causing some developers to reconsider plans for homes, consulting firm Arcadis NV said on Monday.

The U.K.’s Labour Party was based in the tower when former Prime Minister Tony Blair won the 1997 national election.

Berkeley Wins Approval for 652 Homes in West London Project

Berkeley Group Holdings Plc won approval to develop as many as 652 homes at a west London parking lot.

The project near Marylebone rail station was approved late Tuesday by Westminster council after a 3-1 vote. London’s biggest home builder bought the 2.66-acre (1.1 hectare) plot in June 2015 and the development will include a 30-story tower, a spa, offices and stores.

Berkeley Group shares rose as much as 2.42 percent on Wednesday, the most since April 5, in London trading. The stock was trading at 3,051 pence at 08:15 a.m.

A record number of luxury homes are planned in London’s best districts even as demand wanes. Home values in Westminster rose 6.7 percent in the 12 months through February to an average of 1.06 million pounds ($1.52 million), according to the Land Registry.

Short interest in Berkeley climbed to almost 6.5 percent of shares outstanding this month, the highest since 2008. Hedge funds including Odey Asset Management LLP and Marshall Wace LLP raised short positions in the builder as the luxury-homes market slows, according to filings last week. The stock is down about 17 percent this year.

Crispin Odey’s fund has the biggest individual short bet, holding 1.4 percent of shares outstanding. Officials at the company didn’t immediately respond to a request seeking comment. A spokesman for Marshall Wace declined to comment.
