The number of projects near Canary Wharf are insane. Can't wait to see London's skyline in 5 years.

London's Chelsea Barracks Homes Said to Sell at 200% Premium

Qatari Diar Real Estate Investment Co. has sold almost 30 homes at its $4.3 billion Chelsea Barracks project in London before the properties are offered to the wider market later this year, according to a person with knowledge of the matter.

Buyers agreed to pay the equivalent of about 4,500 pounds ($6,500) a square foot, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the information is private.

That compares with an average price of about 1,500 pounds a square foot for homes sold in central London’s best districts in March, according to data compiled by broker Huntly Hooper Ltd. Qatari Diar and officials at Knight Frank LLP and Savills Plc, who are brokering the sales, declined to comment.

A joint venture paid 959 million pounds for the 5.3 hectare (13-acre) site in January 2008 and Qatari Diar, part of the nation’s sovereign wealth fund, later took full control of the project.

A unit of the fund won local-government approval in 2011 to develop almost 450 homes, stores, a health center and leisure facilities on the land. An earlier plan was dropped after it was opposed by Prince Charles.

The project, due to be finished in 2024, will be valued at 3 billion pounds, according to the website of RLF, a health and safety consultant for the project. A model home may open as soon as next month, the person said.

Home prices in Chelsea fell 2.5 percent in the year through March, according to a report compiled by Knight Frank. Values of homes across the capital’s best districts rose 0.8 percent in the same period, the data show.

Big Ben 'bongs' to be silenced for £29m refurbishment

Britain's most famous clock tower is to fall silent so that urgent repair work can be carried out at a cost of £29m.

Parliament says it has no choice but to stop the chimes of Big Ben, after 157 years of nearly unbroken service, to prevent its mechanism from failing.

The Elizabeth Tower, which houses it, will also be repaired during the three year project, which starts next year.

Construction is turning London into a city of holes



It’s often the disappearance of the familiar that makes us notice the city around us. We walk the same streets every day, no longer really noticing the buildings that define them. Then a hole appears, an open wound in the urban tissue. New views are revealed, naked backs exposed.

In 19th-century Paris, photographers rushed to document the last moments of medieval streets and intimate alleys. In London, most urban construction today is perceived as a nuisance rather than a sign of progress, greeted not with nostalgia for the old but frustration in the moment: a closed Tube station, a road diversion, a racket.

As the capital grows, it goes through waves of rebuilding, each purporting to address a dominant issue. In the late 19th century it was slum clearance; after the second world war it was the rebuilding of a city devastated by bombing as a physical expression of a new welfare state; in the 1980s the rebuilding was an effort to revitalise the city as a global financial centre. And now — what exactly?

The current phase of construction, which will change the London skyline more radically than any previous rebuilding, is predicated on real estate as investment. More than 400 towers of 20 storeys or more, either under construction or in the planning process, will reshape a city that once revelled in its low-rise silhouette of slate rooftops and chimneys.

At the same time, entire new strata are being carved out beneath the pavements. Residents of affluent neighbourhoods have been protesting about the disruption caused by the construction of a new generation of mega-basements, multiple-storied subterranean spaces containing pools, gyms and home-entertainment suites.

These may be eye-wateringly expensive to build but, thanks to hyper-inflated property prices (Mayfair developments have been reaching upwards of £5,000 per sq ft), they add far more to a property’s value than they cost to construct.

Together the two phenomena might be seen as a kind of privatisation of the sky and the soil, a vertical extrusion upwards and downwards of the ownership once conferred in only two dimensions on an Ordnance Survey map.

The story is not only about private property, however. The biggest holes that have appeared in central London during the past few years have been those dug to build the £15bn Crossrail project, which, by the end of 2019, will provide a 100km rail link from Reading and Heathrow in the west, under central London, to Shenfield in the east.

Chasms have opened up in some of the city’s most tightly knit and atmospheric neighbourhoods. Big chunks of Soho have been chewed into mulch by concrete shears, and paper-thin Victorian façades now shiver in the wind generated by Centre Point (itself being converted into apartments).

The blocks around Denmark Street, once the hub of the music business with its guitar shops, recording studios and basement clubs, have been fast disappearing. This messy neighbourhood, so dirty and incoherent it was overlooked by developers, is now being repackaged as a piece of prime real estate with added musical nostalgia.

The hole south of Oxford Street, carved into Soho, appears vast beside the delicate grain of the neighbouring Georgian elevations, the scale of the structural intervention a shocking disruption to the slightly seedy, dilapidated grid.

The city’s next blockbuster infrastructure project is the “super sewer”, or Thames Tideway Tunnel (due to begin on site this year), a subterranean cesspit that will handle storm surges and stop raw sewage being sent into the Thames.

The £4.2bn project is being developed by a consortium of private investors, a vehicle for guaranteeing future income from London water bills. The taxpayer, as ever, provides the backstop should anything go wrong. The new consortium is called Bazalgette Tunnel Limited but in borrowing one of London’s great engineering names, it reveals its inadequacy.

Disagree with some of what was written.

London didn't revel in its "low-rise silhouette of slate rooftops and chimneys", it revelled in its visual identity as a city of spires. One only need look at famous works by Canaletto, Smith or the Dutch House. The skyline progressed from being shaped by religion (church spires), to industry (port cranes, smoke stacks, power station chimneys etc), to commerce and residences (office space, apartments, hotels) today. It's wrong to argue that today's skyline-piercing constructions benefit the wealthy, but that it wasn't the case before.

On the topic of demolition, a century ago you could have a single project in London (eg. Aldwych and Kingsway, 1905) demolishing far more historic structures than is cumulatively done today. That project involved the demolition of a large swathe of centuries-old central London, including 600 separate properties and streets/passages/courts dating back hundreds of years. Conversely, the majority of London's large schemes today are being built on disused or derelict land, as detailed on this page.

The FT writer is mildly critical of the arrangements regarding the Thames Tideway Tunnel, yet projects like Battersea Power Station were also built by a private consortium. These instances and more aren't unique to 21st century London.
