Brexit: London property developer Mount Anvil remains 'absolutely committed' to £1bn pipeline

Mount Anvil, a central London property developer, said it is committed to delivering all of the more than £1bn ($1.29bn) of projects in its pipeline and plans to double the size of its business over the coming five years. The news comes despite Brexit, which has unleashed political and economic uncertainty on the country.

"We're long-term bullish about London," Darragh Hurley, investment director at Mount Anvil, told IBTimes UK. "We remain absolutely committed to the places where we've made promises to people to deliver homes. Trust is incredibly important for us.

"We're a privately held business and so our whole business is based on trust and repeat partnerships. And so we'll continue to work with our partners to do what we've said we will do. We're continuing to look for ways to grow Mount Anvil and we anticipate doubling or more the size of the business over the next five years."

In 2015, Mount Anvil recorded a profit of £25m ($32m), up annually by 25% on a turnover of £252.1m. The firm has seven housing developments in progress across London, including Dollar Bay by Canary Wharf and Queen's Wharf in Hammersmith, a pipeline of projects worth more than £1bn and set to deliver more than 1,000 new homes.

The construction sector in London faces a number of issues as it works to deliver the 50,000 new homes a year the city needs to meet demand. Currently, around half this number are constructed, fuelling rapid house price growth in many parts of the city. A shortage of land, materials and labour is driving up input costs for building firms and constraining output.

East London Overground network to partially close to allow for Crossrail works



Some east London Overground services are to close to allow work to continue at Whitechapel station in preparation for the Elizabeth line.

TfL has informed commuters that there will be partial closure of various lines between Saturday, July 30 and Sunday, August 7.

The Highbury and Islington to Shadwell service will be closed for the whole period while Surrey Quays to New Cross will close from Monday, August 1 to Friday, August 5.

There will also be no trains between Surrey Quays and Clapham Junction on Saturday, July 30 to Sunday, July 31 and Saturday, August 6 to Sunday, August 7.

London Overground director Mike Stubbs said: “We have worked closely with Crossrail Limited to ensure that the work impacts on as few journeys as possible and take place during a quieter period on the network, when schools are on their summer break.”

The Elizabeth line, due for completion in 2018, will add up to 24 trains an hour in each direction, providing frequent services to Heathrow, Paddington, the West End and Canary Wharf.

East India £250m tech campus aims to rival Hoxton Square

The man behind a £250million scheme to transform the grey East India Dock office estate into a colourful hub for up to 10,000 workers says he wants to challenge Hoxton Square.

Work has started to transform the 1990s-built site into a “trophy workplace” designed to appeal to the next generation of creative and tech businesses.

Robert Wolstenholme is managing director of Mayfair firm Trilogy Property , which has taken this on as its London-based project, called Republic.

Partnering with real estate investment manager LaSalle Investment Management it has bought 600,000sq ft of space in the estate’s four office blocks. Previous owners Criterion Capital wanted to bulldozed them and build apartments.

Robert said: “My view was, what’s not to like about the office buildings? They are not that bad, a bit dated, a bit grey, but great quality buildings.

“Soon it will be surrounded by the talent that is being priced out of west and south London. Our job is to convert this from being a soulless grey place to an exciting, colourful vibrant place.”

A Thursday street food market curated by Epicurean Events has already been launched, a giant art wall by designer Tom Hingston wraps the side of one building and a temporary event and gallery space are set to launch soon.

Robert said: “Could this be the next Hoxton Square? Why not?”

East India will soon have a new influx of residents with developments Aberfeldy Village to the north, the next phase of Canary Wharf to the south, London City Island to the east and Blackwall Regeneration Scheme, to the west.

The five-year masterplan by architect studio RHEb aims to transform the estate, built by Swedish architect Sten Samuelson in 1993, into a place that will attract even more companies to the area.

Could go either way, IMO.

As so often, the quality of the cladding will make or break it.

The curved outline will make the difference. The front and back are just glass (but it'll have to be really transparent like in the renders).

ISG bags £21m London Halo tower fitout



ISG has been awarded a £21m fit-out project for medical group Health Services Laboratories to create its core laboratories and corporate offices in London.

HSL is a joint venture between The Doctors Laboratory, University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust.

The new 133,000 sq ft laboratory in the former Unison HQ between Euston and King’s Cross stations, now known as the Halo building, will see the organisation consolidate facilities to form one of the largest pathology laboratories in Europe.

ISG will work across five basement levels of the building, along with a further 10 storeys above ground.

The multi-phased project begins with the Cat A fit-out of the ground and basement areas from shell and core, including the installation of the building’s complex mechanical and electrical services infrastructure.

One Blackfriars Cladding is so delicious. I'm really hoping for a similar quality of cladding for The Scalpel.
