Really looking forward seeing at least 5-6 rising cores at CW next year. Could really provide some views really seen in Europe at all.

I remember going to gigs when I was younger in Elephant & Castle and seeing Strata rise up. Now look at it! The place is being transformed. I need to have a mooch around sometime..

Malaysia Fund Said to Market $290 Million London Office

The Malaysian fund that invests on behalf of the country’s 18 million Muslims plans to offer the London headquarters of law firm King & Wood Mallesons for sale, according to one of its investment managers.

Gatehouse Bank Plc, which manages real estate investments on behalf of the Lembaga Tabung Haji, has hired broker Savills Plc to find a buyer for the office building at 10 Queen Street Place, the lender said.

The building is expected to sell for about 200 million pounds ($290 million), according to two people with knowledge of the matter, asking not to be identified as the process is private.

“Options being explored include, but not limited to, the sale of the Queen Street Place building,” the fund said by e-mail. “However, we will only consider the disposal if there is an attractive offer that will benefit TH."

A spokesman for Gatehouse declined to comment on the building’s value. Savills declined to comment on the sale.

Malaysia’s state investment funds have been selling U.K. real estate after the government called on them to repatriate capital to prop up the country’s stock and currency markets.

Tabung Haji purchased the Queen Street Place building in the City of London financial district in 2012 for 165 million pounds, according to a statement at the time from Gatehouse Bank.

Tabung Haji sold 151 Buckingham Palace Road to Gaw Capital Partners last year, according to the purchaser.

Housing Is Job Number 1 for London's Next Mayor



If the bookies and polls have called it correctly, Londoners are about to choose the son of Pakistani immigrants as their next mayor over the Eton-educated heir to a family fortune.

Then it would be up to Mayor Sadiq Khan to fulfil his promise to address the greatest source of London's growing inequality: the city's housing crisis.

London housing is both expensive and scarce. The average price of a London home is now 531,000 pounds ($768,400), about 10 times the average Londoner's income and 44 percent greater than before the financial crisis.

Housing is 20 percent cheaper in Paris, 45 percent cheaper in Rome and 56 percent cheaper in Berlin. Even Stockholm, another city known for its high-priced housing, is 32 percent cheaper than London.

Rents have risen by 16 percent in the past five years compared to a 2 percent growth in average earnings. There is overcrowding in public housing and increased homelessness. Some 80,000 children in London are living in temporary accommodation.

Many teachers and other middle-income workers must either accept inadequate housing or long commutes to stay in London. But young doctors, lawyers and other professionals whom you'd expect to easily afford a home are also relying on parental help to buy a property.

In one survey, 73 percent of business decision makers said that London's housing supply poses a "significant" risk to the capital's growth.

Industry lobbies such as the Confederation of British Industries have expressed concern about how rising housing costs affect their ability to recruit and retain staff. Lower borrowing costs should help those who can afford hefty down-payments, but lending to first-time buyers fell 8 percent in the last year.

All of this is likely to get worse. London's population of 8.5 million is growing steadily, mostly because the birth rate exceeds the mortality rate. It is expected to reach 10 million by 2030.

London's housing crisis has many causes, from planning bottlenecks to property hoarding to scarcity of financing for small builders. Planning authorities, whose budgets have been cut by 40 percent in recent years, process only about a third of the permissions required. Many permissions don't result in completed property.

As a result, London builds about 25,000 new residential properties a year but needs at least twice that.

There are solutions, but they will take more political courage and capital than either of London's two previous mayors, Ken Livingstone and Boris Johnson, could muster.

An effective solution to London's housing crisis could be Brexit.
Many of the financial institutes et al are about to leave for other locations then, with many of the real estate locusts in their entourage. And London/UK could finally face a resurge in actual and real industries then, providing jobs for the middle class.

London reminds me of a Sim City 4 city after you plug in the water mains - you click the timelapse button and then all of a sudden there's an explosion of cranes and building sites and within a few minutes your city is completely transformed.

What conclusions can you draw from this situation?
