Childers Street



A mixed-use regeneration scheme of 83 residential units and 1240 sq m of commercial space, the building responds to its local context and integrates with the emerging masterplan as a key site for redevelopment within Deptford.

As one of few remaining examples of warehouse architecture in the local area, the project looks to retain the existing facade onto Childers Street, creating a new building behind.

Internally, the building is enlivened with a central atrium, which provides natural daylight to a series of walkways that connect the flats within.

Externally, the proposal seeks to enhance the existing building and offer a new build extension that acknowledges the rhythms, proportions and material palette of the existing architecture to provide a high quality residential development.

London property snapped up by overseas investors as domestic buyers pull out after Brexit

There are no signs of the British property market ‘falling off the face of the earth’ as some had feared it might if the UK voted to leave.

Overseas property buyers are snapping up London property after the shock decision for the UK to leave the EU, even as domestic buyers, spooked by uncertainty, pull out.

Estate agents in the UK have been swamped with calls from Chinese, Middle Eastern, Italian and Spanish buyers looking for a bargain after the pound tumbled to more than 30-year lows, making the exchange rate very favourable for foreign buyers.

Guy Gittins, the sales director at international property specialists Cherstertons, said he spent the Friday morning after the result speaking to the head of property from a Middle Eastern bank who wanted a list of properties ready for clients that would arrive after the end of Ramadan.

Simon Barry, the head of new developments at Harrods Estates, said that in the 48 hours after the vote he received calls from clients in the Middle East, Africa and the USA asking about London property.

“The sharp fall in sterling will be seen by investors from around the world as a buying opportunity,” Mr Barry said.

There are no signs of the British property market “falling off the face of the earth” as some had feared it might if the UK voted to leave, according to Russell Quirk, founder and chief executive of eMoov.co.uk.

He said eMoov had a “very busy weekend” with a 50 per cent increase in the number of buyers from China and Singapore compared to a weekend earlier.

“It would seem that while a number of European buyers may be tentatively dipping their toe into post-EU property investment in Britain, those from further afield are looking to dive in head first and take advantage of the current indecision in the market due to a weaker pound,” Quirk said.

...

Increasing concern over the stability of the eurozone may be on the mind of wealthy families in Italy and France. Some of these wealthy investors are looking to put their money in property in London.

“If you look back to 2008, central London property benefitted enormously from people wanting to put their money in a stable asset in a sterling currency,” Mr Gittins of Chestertons said.

Mr Gittins said Chestertons sent out some research after the result that it had prepared in case of an out vote. With that newsletter, they registered 150 new buyers. “We've never had such a strong response,” he said.

Goldman, Morgan Stanley deny plans for Frankfurt office switch after Brexit



U.S. investment banks Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley have denied speculation they are poised to shift London-based staff and operations to Frankfurt as soon as Britain's divorce proceedings from the European Union formally begin.

"We have not made any changes to our real estate requirements in Frankfurt as a result of the referendum result," Goldman said in a statement issued on Wednesday.

"As we have already communicated to our employees, there is no immediate change to the way we conduct our business or where we conduct our business."

Echoing its Wall Street rival, Morgan Stanley also moved to quell chatter it was planning to relocate to the German financial hub when the UK government evokes Article 50 -- the first official step in its disentanglement from the 28-nation bloc.

"Morgan Stanley does not have pre-let office space in Frankfurt," the spokesman said in an emailed statement.

Goldman CEO Lloyd Blankfein said the bank, a big donor to the defeated 'Remain' campaign had planned for either referendum outcome for many months, in a statement issued after the outcome of the historic referendum became clear on Friday.

"Goldman Sachs has a long history of adapting to change, and we will work with relevant authorities as the terms of the exit become clear. Our primary focus, as always, remains serving our clients' needs."

“We expect to be on site towards the end of 2016 and complete the scheme in 2019.”

The residential units will be sold in a separate transaction by Watkin Jones.

HSBC to keep headquarters in London despite Brexit

HSBC has confirmed that it will keep its headquarters in London despite the shock decision for the UK to leave the EU.

Douglas Flint, chairman, told City executives gathered at a conference in London that HSBC would stick to its plan to keep its headquarters in the UK.

HSBC completed a 10-month review into whether to move its base away from London in February, with New York or Hong Kong thought to be likely alternatives.

The outcome of that review was that HSBC should stay put in London even though two-thirds of its profits are generated in Asia. Mr Flint confirmed that the referendum outcome would not trigger another review.

“We said at the time we made the decision that we’d taken that [a Brexit] into consideration and that in the event of this outcome we would not call for that to be revisited," he said.

HSBC chairman Douglas Flint commits to keeping UK base

Douglas Flint, chairman of HSBC, has ruled out moving the bank’s headquarters away from London following the UK’s vote to leave the EU.

The UK’s largest bank said in February it would keep its headquarters in London, an endorsement of the country’s attractiveness as a financial centre. The decision followed 10 months of internal debate about whether the bank would be better off with an overseas base, most likely in Hong Kong.

At the City UK conference on Thursday, Mr Flint said the referendum result would not prompt another review of the bank’s base.

Crossrail 2: four homes hotspots from Clapham to Enfield on London's new £27 billion north-south train line - set to launch in 2030

Get ready for Crossrail — that’s Crossrail 2, a new north-south route through London that will trigger the building of 200,000 new homes. The £27 billion project is now taking shape after being approved by the Government in the spring Budget.

Transport strategists have revealed that the line will run from Hertfordshire to Surrey through the heart of the capital, connecting with the suburban railway network and the Tube system.

There will be new tunnels between Tottenham Hale and Wimbledon, together with several new stations, including — contentiously — one at King’s Road in Chelsea.

Whereas the purpose of Crossrail 1, the east-west link scheduled to open in 2018, is to serve business districts, Crossrail 2 will unlock land mainly for housing, particularly in north London and the Upper Lea Valley on the city’s north-east fringe.

Priority zones for entire new neighbourhoods have been designated around new stations such as at Meridian Water in Enfield, and many of the new properties will be built sooner rather than later, during the next three to five years.

Linking homes to jobs

Connecting people’s homes with places where the jobs are is a well-tested strategy begun during the first great railway era a century ago when so-called “ribbon development” along new commuter lines between central London and the home counties created suburbs and the geographical entity dubbed “Metro-Land”.

As with Crossrail 1, which continues to cause property ripples along its route, Crossrail 2 will create opportunites and substantial changes in some areas.

And though this new link will not be complete until 2030, estate agents predict it will quickly become embedded in buyers’ minds, influencing their decision-making. So if you want to reap rewards, study the map and get to grips with this major transport upgrade.

Crossrail 2’s route through London will be via Waltham Cross, New Southgate, Seven Sisters, Angel, Euston and Victoria. A spur through Hackney to Dalston is likely and the line will intersect with Crossrail 1 at Tottenham Court Road, transforming this station into a mega transport hub.

After Chelsea, the line will cross the Thames to Clapham Junction. Balham or Tooting Broadway will be a Crossrail 2 station, ending the area’s overdependency on the Northern line. From Wimbledon, the line will branch off to four Surrey stations: Epsom, Shepperton, Hampton Court and Chessington South.
