So many projects, so much quality. My personal favorite is 100 Bishopsgate, the clean lines, the cladding, I like everything about that building.

Wells Fargo Said to Pay $397 Million for City of London Office

Wells Fargo & Co. will pay about 300 million pounds ($397 million) to acquire a new London headquarters enabling the U.S. bank to increase its presence in the U.K. capital, according to two people familiar with the matter who asked not to be named because the details are private.

The building, known as 33 Central, is due to be completed in the third quarter of 2017, according to a statement on Monday from the developer HB Reavis Group.

The property in the City of London district would have room for about 2,600 people, based on the specification listed on the building’s website. Wells Fargo employs 850 people across four London office properties and plans to occupy all of the new building, according to a spokeswoman. The firms declined to comment on the price.

The deal, just three weeks after Britain’s shock vote to leave the European Union, signals London real estate demand may be resilient even as some banks plan to move staff away.

Argent Related seals £1bn Tottenham Hale deal



Developer Argent Related has signed a deal with London’s Haringey council to lead the £1bn development of Tottenham Hale.

The partnership will build 800 homes around the Tottenham Hale transport hub alongside Victoria line, National Rail and future Crossrail 2 services.

Alongside the new mixed-tenure homes, there will be new shops, cafes and restaurants and community facilities, including a health centre.

The redevelopment of Tottenham Hale will also mean improved green spaces and better access to both the new Tottenham Hale transport interchange and the Lee Valley Regional Park.

Developer Argent teamed up with privately-owned US real estate firm Related over a year ago and is also in a joint venture with Barnet Council on London’s 180-acre Brent Cross South site.

Leader of Haringey Council, Claire Kober said: “Our Tottenham Hale programme will create thousands of new jobs and new affordable homes. We are delighted to be working with Argent Related, a partnership which brings together two companies, one with a track record in successfully transforming King’s Cross and the other with extensive expertise in major development.”

Gatwick to spend extra £200m on construction

Gatwick bosses have confirmed plans to invest an extra £200m in the airport. The extra money will bring the total investment over the coming five years to £1.2 billion.

The total invested in improving the airport since new ownership (2009) through to 2021 will be £2.5 billion.

Some of the projects identified in the new Capital Investment Programme (2016 to 2021) announced today include:
  • Expansion of both the North Terminal and South Terminal departure lounges
  • Upgrading shopping facilities
  • Expansion of the North Terminal and South Terminal immigration halls
  • Additional aircraft parking stands and optimisation of taxiways

Gatwick Airport CEO Stewart Wingate said: “As Gatwick rapidly approaches full capacity, this increased investment paves the way for our second runway project.

“As we enter a new era for Britain, we must be agile and decisive as a country to show the world that we are open for business.

“It is now clear that only Gatwick can deliver the runway Britain needs to boost international competitiveness and trading links at a time when it is most needed, and we can do that before 2025.

“This investment will also make sure that we can continue Gatwick’s record growth and transformation.

Crossrail nears 75% complete milestone on time



A major milestone in the construction of the new Elizabeth line station at Liverpool Street has been reached with the installation of the two new platforms over 30m below ground.

The completion of the two 240m long platforms, which were pre-fabricated in more than 500 pieces, brings the Crossrail construction programme close to the 75% milestone.

Crossrail claims the project remains on time and budget as the focus now swings towards fitting out the stations and tunnels with the equipment and systems needed to operate the railway.

In total nearly 4km of platforms have been constructed at stations in central London. The platforms are now complete at all stations from Paddington to Woolwich apart from Whitechapel where construction is ongoing.

Liverpool street platform sections were transported from a factory over 130 miles away near Sheffield and lowered down the station’s main shaft and pieced together below ground.

The new platforms have taken around four months to install and are around twice the length of many existing London Underground platforms to accommodate the new 200 metre long Elizabeth line trains.

Derwent filling London offices despite Brexit vote



Derwent London has pre-let 84,600 sq ft of space to four new customers at an office scheme currently completing refurbishment in east London.

The majority of the remaining available space consists of the top three floors. The building will include a new 7,000 sq ft reception area with an independent café, and an external terrace.

Phase 2 will comprise predominantly the lower ground floors representing another c.85,000 sq ft of space where work could start in 2017.

John Burns, Chief Executive Officer of Derwent London, said: “We are very pleased to introduce four new occupiers to our portfolio, three of which signed leases after the EU referendum.

And it looks like Spire London (new name for Hertsmere), the highest residential tower in Western Europe will follow One Nine Elms very soon. This is another large Chinese developer Greenland. Double page advert in Metro newspaper (screen by london lad):

Currency exchange helped?

Waiting for Croydon tower also by Chinese developers.

Heathrow awards design deal for £16bn expansion plan



Architect Grimshaw has been chosen as the concept designers for Heathrow’s £16bn expansion plans.

Airport bosses said the appointment “sends the clear signal to the Government that Heathrow is a ready-to-go, privately financed infrastructure project.”

Grimshaw won out from a shortlist which also included Zaha Hadid, HOK and Benoy.

The appointment follows on from the announcement of Arup, CH2M, MACE and Turner & Townsend as Programme Client Partners in March.

Head of Design at Heathrow, Barry Weekes, said: “We look forward to working with Grimshaw to develop their bold ideas so that once the Government approves the Heathrow expansion, we can create a world-class sustainable hub airport which delivers for our passengers, our airlines and also helps to integrate Heathrow with our local communities.

“With the Concept Architect and Programme Client Partners now in place, we are now ready to begin the process of expansion once the Government makes the right choice for the whole of Britain.”

Partner at Grimshaw, Andrew Thomas, said: “We believe the expansion of Heathrow is vital to maintaining the UK’s place within the global economy and we look forward to developing a design that provides an authentic and uniquely British sense of place.

Heathrow Airport investors say ready to fund new runway

Shareholders in London's Heathrow Airport are ready to invest 16 billion pounds if the government chooses it as the site for airport expansion, one of the investors said in a letter to new Prime Minister Theresa May.

Heathrow, Europe's busiest airport, has been campaigning for years to build an extra runway but a decision has been delayed by successive governments worried about pollution and local opposition. Other airports say they should expand instead.
