Arcadis predicts post Brexit boom for London property

Arcadis is predicting a post Brexit property boom in London as sterling continues to devalue.

The consultant is taking a contrarian view to more pessimistic observers predicting a downturn in the market as uncertainty delays decisions.

Arcadis experts believe the falling pound will lead to an influx of foreign investment which “would provide a timely boost for the UK construction sector in the long term, particularly if increased competitiveness is also matched by government funding for infrastructure, helping to underpin confidence in the new build sector.”

Mark Cleverly, Arcadis head of commercial development, said: “The market volatility we’ve seen as a result of the Brexit vote is, perhaps ironically, going to re-open the luxury property market to overseas investors, as several of our clients have already reported a bounce in enquiries following the referendum.

“This influx of investment coming into the UK could boost British construction again in the future as well as giving shot in the arm to the Treasury through increasing stamp duty receipts.

“For a market that, in some areas, has been stuttering for some time due to ongoing stamp duty hikes taking the steam out of buyer demand, the buying opportunity presented by recent events could be a big plus.

“More buyers means a more buoyant market which can only be good news for the industry.”

Hunt starts for £500m MPs offices revamp contractor



The Northern Estate Programme will restore and protect listed buildings around Portculis House that are home to around 1,000 MPs and their staff.

It has been over 40 years since the buildings were properly refurbished.

The building revamp is expected to attract significant interest as the project will be seen as a dress rehersal for the £7bn structural rescue of the Palace of Westminster presently under consideration.

The Northern Estate Programme will restore and protect the listed buildings, reduce running costs, increase environmental performance and create a safe, responsive and efficient working environment for Members and staff, for years to come.

This work will also contribute to House targets to reduce carbon emissions by 34% by 2020/21 and to reduce water consumption by 50% over the same period.

Lendlease and Morgan Sindall make shortlist for £2bn scheme

A shortlist of three bidders has been confirmed for £2bn of development plans across Haringey in north London.

The shortlisted bidders are Lendlease, Morgan Sindall with Affinity Sutton and Circle; and Pinnacle with Starwood Capital and Catalyst.

The bidders who have dropped out of the race are Places for People, Galliford Try with Home Group and Urban & Civic.

The Haringey Development Vehicle will work with the winning joint venture partner to deliver town centre regeneration and housing estate renewal across the borough.

Over the next 20 years plans will see construction of 5,000 new homes and a new town centre in Wood Green.

The leader of Haringey Council, Councillor Claire Kober said: “Today we are a step closer to appointing a partner to deliver one of the biggest regeneration programmes in the UK.

“This £2billion programme underlines our ambition for Haringey and will transform our borough and the role it plays in London, with thousands of new jobs and homes for current and future residents.”

A winner from the shortlist will be chosen by the start of next year.

I quite like it, I pass that way most days and the proportions and (rust) colour feel in keeping with the planting and proximity to the QE Park. Assuming it was built on a tight budget I'm pleased it wasn't a box.

Despite finding it ugly, we have to give a break to student accommodation buildings. They aren't usually very pretty anywhere.
