Don't mean to be rude but have you posted those in the wrong thread?

None of those are new projects.

Sainsbury’s submits plans for Fulham Wharf

Sainsbury’s has submitted plans for its Fulham Wharf project.
As tipped by Property Week, Sainsbury’s bought out previous owner Ballymore’s interest in the project, before teaming up with Helical Bar to progress the scheme.

This week it submitted plans for both the redevelopment of its store on Townmead Road and the adjacent Fulham Wharf scheme.

It has hired Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands architects and is working with development manager Helical Bar to create a mixed use scheme along the riverside which will include restaurants, cafes, shops and 472 homes.......

UBS signs for 700,000 sq ft of space at British Land's Broadgate Estate

In a clear vote of confidence in London and the square mile, Swiss Bank UBS has signed a pre-let agreement with British Land and its joint venture partner Blackstone for 700,000 sq ft of space at the Broadgate Estate in what will become the largest single office building in the City of London.

The new development, to be called Five Broadgate will contain four new trading floors of 65,000 sq ft each for the banks investment banking division as well as general office space, and will replace the existing buildings at Four and Six Broadgate. The 20-year lease deal is the largest signed since the onset of the credit crunch and includes an 18-month rent free period for UBS, who are paying £54.50 per sq ft, which is considerably more than the £40.50 paid by Nomura at Watermark Place showing the rapid recovery in London's office market.

UBS is currently the largest tenant in the Broadgate Estate and indeed British Land's largest office client, accounting for 4% of total rent. There had previously been concerns that the Swiss banking giant may have looked for a move away from Broadgate when its existing leases expired between September 2013 and 2017, with Canary Wharf seen as a likely destination. With this deal now secured, any speculation can be dismissed with British Land likely to turn its attention to developing the Cheesegrater at 122 Leadenhall, with only limited availability at existing offices such as 201 Bishopsgate, Broadgate Tower and Ropemaker Place, which was 91% let as of 31 March 2010 to both Macquarie Group and Bank of Tokyo‐Mitsubishi UFJ.

Commenting on the deal, British Land Chief Chris Grigg said “We are delighted at this significant commitment by UBS to the City and Broadgate in particular. The transaction demonstrates the enduring appeal of this important City of London office estate. At the same time, the new building will enhance the overall quality of Broadgate while generating an attractive development return.”

It is expected that demolition of the existing buildings and preparation works will commence in the second half of 2011. Practical completion to shell and core is then planned for the second half of 2014, with British Land and Blackstone stating that construction costs will total £340 million not taking into account the value of the land or interest. With the arrival of Crossrail at Liverpool Street station in 2017 a new Broadgate ticket hall will open, which will also likely have been a factor for UBS, offering a direct link to both Canary Wharf and Heathrow airport.

The deal also serves to highlight the rapid progress in IT infrastructure and the ever changing requirements of major occupiers. Broadgate was officially opened in December 1991 yet parts of the giant estate are already being demolished and redeveloped to meet the specific needs of UBS, a trend that is becoming more common in the City with the construction of New Court for the Rothschild bank and a return to pre-lets. The deal is subject to planning permission from the City of London but it is not expected that there will be a building of any significant height.

Apple to open its largest Store in Covent Garden

Apple will open its 300th retail store this Saturday and the Mac maker says it will be its biggest and best.

The existing Apple Store in Regent's Street is already the outfit's busiest temple of consumerism and is reputedly the most profitable retail space in the whole of the capital.

Now the Cupertino company is hoping to have the same impact on London's historic Covent Garden with the largest Apple Store in the world, a massive three-story building with a skylight-covered central atrium and all of the usual fancy glass staircases and chic design touches.

Judging from the pictures posted on Tech Radar, the company has let the existing building shine through with modern display units complimenting the bare brick walls and Victorian architectural flourishes.

The new store, which opens its doors for the first time this Saturday (August 7th) will employ 300 people and have 56 Macs, 30 iPads, 40 iPods and 30 iPhones on display for sticky-fingered punters to prod.

In addition to the now familiar workshops and Genius Bar, Apple said, "For the first time in the UK, local companies can make an appointment in the Apple Store Covent Garden's Briefing Room for free business workshops or to get help finding the right technology solutions to meet their business needs."

London's £140m penthouse flat as super-rich buy 'trophy properties'



A London penthouse flat is set to be sold for more than £140 million as super-rich international buyers snap up “trophy properties” in the capital, the Standard reveals today.

The two-floor apartment at the One Hyde Park development in Knightsbridge features bullet-proof windows, an air purifying system and a panic room.

The flat, possibly the most expensive in the world, is believed to cost more than £6,000 a square foot compared with the Kensington and Chelsea average of £1,214 and capital wide average of £450.

The price illustrates the stark differences between how the super-prime and mainstream residential markets in the capital are faring. International buyers are still investing in London, attracted by the weakness of the pound, as many Londoners pull out of the market.

Trevor Abrahamson, of estate agent Glentree Estates, said: “This is a huge price but it's not surprising. In the last six months we have sold more trophy properties than we have in the last two years. One minute there was an over supply and then there was a shortage. Prices are high.

“London has recovered much better than other prime markets around the world. It draws buyers from the most eclectic range of destinations and it will always be seen as the capital of capitals financially and culturally.”

One Hyde Park, next door to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, features more than 80 flats in four linked towers designed by architect Lord Rogers.

The complex includes spas, squash courts and a private wine-tasting facility. Everyone on site will have access to a private underground passage to the hotel and 24-hour room service from the hotel, where Michelin-starred chef Heston Blumenthal is opening his first London restaurant.

It is understood that SAS-trained guards and iris scanners provide extra security to the apartments, which are due to be completed in October.

Surrey-born property tycoons, brothers Christian and Nick Candy, manage the development through their company Candy & Candy.

Christian Candy's CPC Group bought the One Hyde Park site for £150 million in 2004. It used to be occupied by a rundown Fifties office block called Bowater House.

The highest proportion of buyers of the flats so far are from Europe, making up a third of all buyers. A quarter of buyers are Middle Eastern. The average price of a flat is £20 million.

Once One Hyde Park is completed and all the buyers have paid up, the whole block will be one of the most expensive residential locations in the world. Houses rather than flats tend to achieve the highest prices in London.

Lakshmi Mittal bought his first property in Kensington Park Gardens in 2004 for around £60 million but is now worth over £150 million. Next to London, the most expensive flats are to be found in New York, where before the 2007 crash a triplex penthouse in The Pierre hotel, overlooking Fifth Avenue and Central Park, was on the market for $70 million.

Asia's most expensive apartment was sold in June 2008 for $28.8 million, an 80th floor penthouse minutes from Hong Kong's central business district. In Sydney a penthouse with views of the harbour and Opera House sold for 20 million US dollars.

A studio flat in Cedar Close, West Dulwich, is under offer with estate agent Stapleton Long for £55,000. The retirement property, only available to the over-55s, is believed to be the joint cheapest in London. The other bargain basement is a studio flat in South Norwood.

Work set to start on tower block scheme after delays

A LONG-AWAITED start on a 750-home town centre development is expected in the next few weeks.

The announcement from Berkeley Homes comes as the developer has submitted new plans for the scheme which envisage some internal alterations to the housing floors.

It also follows agreement from Croydon Council's strategic planning committee that some changes can be made to the timescale for delivering affordable homes as part of the overall development.

Berkeley Homes is providing some affordable housing in the development, but a larger amount of its required quota is being built off site in other locations around the borough.

The council's decision means the phasing of this off-site work has been changed, making it easier for Berkeley to start on the main project.

Planning permission for the development was granted in 2007 and involves building a 44-storey tower and other smaller housing blocks on the site of the now-demolished Randolph and Pembroke House office blocks in Wellesley Road, Croydon.

It will contain 755 flats and 2,080 square metres of commercial space, a mix of offices and shops.

Since the demolition of the buildings, no work has taken place. Last year Berkeley said it was on hold because of the difficulties of selling new homes.

But with signs of a recovery, a spokesman said this week: "Berkeley Homes is delighted to confirm its intention to commence works on its Saffron Square project in mid-August."
