London mayor approves £1bn Docklands resi schemes

The London mayor’s office has given approval for two major Docklands schemes, together worth more than £1bn.

The decision to approve the called-in major residential development schemes planned on the Isle of Dogs comes just days before London’s mayoral elections.

Hong Kong developer Far East Consortium has now got the green light for a 65-storey tower rising to 217m, alongside two other shorter towers of 20 and 34 storeys.

The revised scheme for 50 Marsh Wall will be known as Alpha Square and will house 634 homes, a 20-floor hotel of 231 rooms managed by Dorsett Hospitality International and a new school and health centre.

Building services consultant Grontmij has designed the building to achieve level four for sustainable homes.

The mayor represented by his deputy Sir Eddie Lister also waved through the £500m redevelopment of the Westferry Printworks.

Newspaper tycoon Richard Desmond’s Northern & Shell plans to redevelopment the site building build 722 flats in nine blocks, four up to 30 storeys high — along with a secondary school and offices — on the edge of the Millwall Outer Dock.

I'm hoping the likes of Alpha Square will begin soon! I know that there are a lot of site's that are pretty much just sitting there empty... I don't like that

I cant wait until all these towers are built in Docklands, it will look epic! All that modern shiny cladding and everything being new it will feel like a different world compared to other parts of London

UCL to borrow record £280m to expand



University College London will sign the biggest loan in British university history on Thursday, borrowing £280m to fund an ambitious expansion and take advantage of a surge in international students.

It also marks the biggest construction project at the university since it was established almost 200 years ago and is part of a wave of development projects taking place in campuses across Britain.

The European Investment Bank — owned by EU member states — will lend the money over 30 years at an undisclosed rate of interest. UCL’s loan takes EIB lending to the British university sector to £2.1bn since 2010.

UCL is spending £1.25bn to rebuild existing facilities in central London and develop a new campus on the site of the Olympic village in Stratford, east London.

It is also borrowing a further £150m over five years from a consortium of banks and will fund the rest of the expansion from its own reserves and philanthropic donations.

Imperial College has embarked on similar plans to the west of London, while King’s College is taking over the BBC’s former site at Bush House on the Aldwych. Edinburgh, Strathclyde, Swansea, Belfast and Newcastle are just a few of the universities upgrading campuses outside London.

Universities have been able to improve facilities as income from students has increased in recent years, including those from overseas who often pay twice as much to attend a university in the UK as home students.

Income from overseas students is due to increase to almost £4.6bn a year by 2017-18, up from £3.3bn in 2013-14, according to figures from the Higher Education Funding Council for England.

Nova Victoria has to be one of the most stunningly dismal developments I've ever seen

I like it, it's one of the first projects to use red glass I can think of.

The area around Victoria station is always so hectic and disorderly, this development should have fixed this but instead increases this sense of urban chaos.

Indeed, what a mess.
Parts of London start to look like Shanghai, but not in the good way...

Because of new developments, is there an area of London that looks worse today than it did 30 years ago? For me personally nothing comes to mind.. Of course not counting areas that look worse because there is construction on going.

Can't judge the development and its impact on Victoria until its complete. Especially with respect to traffic and the pedestrian experience.
