Brexit Is a Luxury Property Opportunity, Indian Billionaire’s Son Says

Two years ago, Adar Poonawalla failed in a bid to turn London’s historic Grosvenor House Hotel into his family’s second home. Now he’s on the lookout for a consolation prize, courtesy of Britain’s exit from the European Union.

Poonawalla, whose father Cyrus founded Asia’s largest vaccine maker and is India’s seventh-richest man, wants to take advantage of two products of Brexit: the pound’s plunge to near 30-year lows and concern that London’s luxury-property market will crash.

"That should present some opportunities," 35-year-old Poonawalla said by telephone from his home in the Indian town of Pune, where he now runs Serum Institute of India Ltd., the family business.

"I’m always looking for a good deal because sometimes you get a distressed sale, someone wants a quick easy deal, and we’ve got the liquidity to do that. It’s definitely a place I would want a second home."

Five-Star Amenities

In 2014, Poonawalla hoped Grosvenor House on Park Lane would be that home. The plan was to convert "a couple of thousand square feet" into a private residence offering all the amenities of the adjoining five-star hotel, which the family would run.

The 550 million pound ($744 million) bid was rejected, but that didn’t curb Poonawalla’s appetite for iconic properties.

Last year he agreed to pay $120 million for a former maharajah’s residence in Mumbai that most recently housed the U.S. consulate. The Poonawallas said at the time that they planned to use the building, known as Lincoln House, as a weekend home.

Poonawalla, whose family fortune is estimated at $8.6 billion, said he expects the uncertainty surrounding Brexit will mean he won’t make any deals for another year or two.

Poonawalla, who studied at London’s University of Westminster, backs Britain’s choice to leave the EU.

Like some Brexit voters, he sees the increase in immigrants from other EU countries as a "problem." He also said the U.K.’s decision to stay out of Europe’s shared currency has proven a good one.

Is The Shard still considered Europe's tallest building ( Not including Russia ) now that the UK have chosen to leave?

Britain will still be part of Europe, even if we do leave the EU, which as of now we haven't. So, yes the Shard will still be Western Europe's tallest building.

Not quite

When the hermitage twin towers in Paris finally get build after years of deliberation it should theorically be the tallest building in Western Europe over taking that of the shard.

Last time I check the towers will be 320 meters each to the roof of 85 and 86 floors respectively.

Hermitage very unlikely to ever happen, when the shards height gets surpassed it will most likely be by another tower in London or one in frankfurt

Norges Bank Real Estate Management paid 124 million GBP ($163.53 million) for the property, which is held long leasehold from the City of London Corporation with 139 years unexpired term.

The asset is unencumbered by debt, and no financing was involved in the transaction. The seller of the property was Aberdeen UK Property Fund.

The transaction includes two adjoining buildings, which comprise office, restaurant and retail space totalling 13,000 square feet.

Green light for £175m Old Oak regeneration scheme



London’s Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation has approved its first major planning application for a £175m mixed-use regeneration project.

Development partners Genesis Housing Association and Queens Park Rangers Football Club plan to build 605 new homes – 40% affordable – on part of the vast new regeneration site in a development to be known as Oaklands.

The project will also provide a link road into Old Oak, opening up the wider area to regeneration. The football club has acquired strategic land interests throughout the Old Oak regeneration area for both its planned stadium and associated enabling works.

Over the next 30-40 years up to 25,500 homes and 65,000 new jobs are aimed to be created at the Old Oak and Park Royal regeneration area, which will be a key transport interchange for Crossrail and HS2.

Neil Hadden, chief executive at Genesis Housing Association, said: “We are committed to the future regeneration of Old Oak and partnerships such as the one we have with QPR will enable us to invest, not only in building new homes, but in developing new communities.”
