Absolutely ridiculous (and quite frankly pathetic) that a Muslim can't become Mayor of one of the world's greatest cities in the 21st century without people bringing up questions of terrorism, and Shariah law, and extremism - as if he is in any way related to the small minority of Muslims* who lower themselves to that kind of thing.

I have no doubt Khan will be a wonderful Mayor.

^ I agree with u. when Naheed Nenshi became the mayor of Calgary, people associated him with all kind of terrorist organisations but two years later Nenshi was awarded the best mayor in the world. I hope Sadiq proves himself to be like Nenshi.

That's a surprise, I didn't know that city pride tower was ready for construction. I thought that there was still a lot of work to be done before we seen above ground works commencing.

I'm quite shocked by how much coverage the mayoral election has received internationally... seems like more than the GE.

And didn't Sadiq Khan say he was agnostic?

Absolutely ridiculous that his religion is brought up everywhere, it can be some curious trivia at most, but why there is so much buzz about it, why do media want to make so much controversy everywhere.

I agree with you other than this part. People don't bring up extremism primarily because of his religion, they bring it up — as with Jeremy Corbyn and a number of other politicians — because he does have a history of working for or sharing the stage with extremists. I don't think for an instant that he shares their ideology or that his religion will in anyway undermine his leadership, but I think to not bring up or questions those links because of his religion is wrong. We bring up even tenuous links wherever else they're found, and in Khan's case there are quite a few of them over his years as a human rights lawyer.

To personally attack him as a threat as the Conversatives have done is disturbing and disgusting of course, because there's absolutely no basis that I can see for that whatsoever, but I've seen plenty on the other side of the argument hurling insults at people simply for pointing out those links.

Appropriate Headline: Sadiq Khan becomes Mayor of London

Actual Headline: MUSLIM BECOMES MAYOR OF WESTERN CAPITAL

Result: Conservatives are raging and religious extremists think they're about to conquer London.

Oh well, maybe it won't be a total loss if he also believes in skyscrapers.

BTW, has Richard Dawkins weighed in on the new mayor ?

Mr Khan received substantial sums from property developers to fund this campaign, he could be as ruthless as Boris when it comes to calling in schemes.

I don't agree with messing around with TFL soley on the basis becuase of thier ethnicity.

Luton Airport peoplemover plan announced

Plans for a £200m fully-automated ‘guided light rail peoplemover’ linking Luton Airport with Luton Airport Parkway station were announced by airport owner London Luton Airport Ltd on April 15. This would support a £110m project to increase the airport’s capacity by 50% to 18 million passengers/year by 2020.

LLAL has appointed Arup to undertake the design and procurement of the peoplemover. It expects to submit a planning application ‘in the early autumn’, and construction could begin in 2017 for opening by the end of 2020.

The preferred route would start at the Stirling Place commercial development and multi-storey car park, run alongside the Midland Main Line, cross over the Airport Way road and pass through the mid-term car park to reach the central airport terminal.

The peoplemover would prove a 24 h service with ‘a seamless 5 min transfer time between Parkway station and the airport terminal’, according to Councillor Andy Malcolm, Chair of LLAL.

He said the fastest end-to-end journey time of 30 min from London St Pancras station to the airport would be 20 min shorter than the journey between London Liverpool Street and Stansted Airport, and also quicker than the rail journey from London Victoria to Gatwick Airport.

It is envisaged that fares would be included in rail ticket or car parking charges or available for separate purchase, as with the current bus shuttle between the station and the airport.

Prime London sees 40% rise in new housebuilding



The number of new homes under construction in inner London has risen by more than 40 per cent in 18 months as developers plough ahead with schemes despite falling prices for luxury homes.

Some 19,000 units are being built in 30 inner London postcodes, part of an overall development pipeline of 54,000 units in those areas, according to research for the Financial Times by Property Vision, a buying agency, and Dataloft, a research firm.

That represents a 43 per cent increase on the 13,400 units under construction when the same survey was first carried out 18 months ago.

The new homes will help to mitigate the housing shortage across the capital, but raise concerns over a potential oversupply at the luxury “prime” end of the market, where appetite for newbuild purchases has weakened and prices are falling.

In 2015, only 7,021 homes changed hands in the secondary market in the areas covered by the research, which stretch from Mayfair in the West End to east London’s “Silicon Roundabout” and Battersea on the southern bank of the Thames.

“The gap between the pipeline of new stock and the annual secondary market in the wider area is large — very large,” said Charlie Ellingworth, a director at Property Vision.

Even as construction activity mounted, appetite for newbuild apartments in London has declined: the number sold ahead of completion across the capital dropped a third year-on-year to 5,947 in the first quarter of 2016, according to figures from Molior London, a data provider.

Mr Ellingworth said some luxury schemes that had received planning permission but not started construction were likely to be “mothballed or reconceived as offices” as the market adjusts.

Of the planned new homes, more than 12,800 are for the SW8 postcode, where the Nine Elms area is home to London’s largest residential construction site. But of these only 4,145 have begun construction, leaving most open to potential delays or design changes as the market adjusts.

Stratford's development has been crazy! I remember when one of the stands of the Olympic Stadium was first put up. Just looking at the area now is a total contrast to what it once was.

Out of interest, has anyone got a render of the future Stratford skyline? I'm finding it very hard to keep up with all of the developments and sometimes struggle to tell which tower is which when I go by on the train.
