Wates starts on £70m Hoxton resi towers



Wates Construction has started on site after signing a £70.9m contract to build Anthology’s new Hoxton Press development.

The Hackney project will see Wates build two towers of 20 and 16 storeys containing 198 apartments designed by Karakusevic Carson Architects and David Chipperfield Architects.

Completion of the two towers, Mono and Duo, is expected by summer 2018.

Mark Tant, Managing Director Wates Construction London Private Residential, said: “Anthology’s aspirations for Hoxton Press are to create a premium residential development that complements the ongoing regeneration at the Colville Estate, ambitions that Wates has long-standing proficiency in fulfilling.”

David Newey, Project Director for Anthology Hoxton Press added: “We are thrilled to be working in collaboration with Wates on the exciting regeneration of the Colville Estate.

“Hoxton is cemented as a key London destination for buyers, renters and tourists alike. By working with Wates, we are able to bring our vision to life with a development that sits in the heart of Hackney and has good travel connections, markets, shops and design studios just a stone’s throw away.

A legal bid to halt the project has failed. The government has reaffirmed its support for the project but its financial guarantee has been reduced.

I'm so glad the project is proceeding ahead, I wonder when will we see the first construction activities, when they first announced the idea, I was like: just another very nice concept that could hardly reach the stage of construction.
I'd really like if they use willows and birch trees, they could also use some evergreens so the bridge could look nice during winter.
The idea to have an object with so much greenery deserves a lot of respect and admiration (in my opinion).

London Mayor Khan Announces Probe Into Disputed Garden Bridge

London Mayor Sadiq Khan asked lawmaker Margaret Hodge to review the capital’s disputed Garden Bridge project to determine whether it provides value for money for taxpayers, who are footing almost a third of the 185 million-pound ($240 million) construction costs.

The review will investigate the work of the Greater London Authority and Transport for London since the 366-meter (1,200-feet) tree-lined pedestrian bridge across the River Thames was first proposed in 2013, Khan’s office said on Thursday in an e-mailed statement.

The mayor has pledged to increase the transparency of the project, which is led by a charitable trust and has been dismissed by critics as a waste of public funding.

Hodge, like Khan a member of the U.K.’s main opposition Labour Party, was chairwoman of Parliament’s Public Accounts Committee, which scrutinizes government spending, for five years through to last year.

“I’m clear that since the beginning of the project there hasn’t been the necessary standard of transparency and openness around the Garden Bridge,” Khan said in the statement. “Nearly 40 million pounds of public money has already been spent on the Garden Bridge project, and Londoners deserve far more information about the decisions that have been made around how their money is being spent.”

Khan has already determined that scrapping the project would cost taxpayers more than allowing it to proceed. That’s because the central government and London authorities have already paid out 37 million pounds of the 60 million pounds they’ve pledged.

If the bridge proceeds, a 20-million pound loan will be repaid to government, and the Treasury will benefit from about 22 million pounds in tax.

HSBC Seeking Fintech Hub in London’s Hipster Neighborhoods

HSBC Holdings Plc is seeking office space in technology-focused London neighborhoods including Shoreditch to bolster its fintech capabilities, according to two people with knowledge of the move.

Europe’s largest bank hired real estate broker CBRE Group Inc. to find 50,000 square feet (4,600 square meters) of space, almost the same size as an American football field, in areas including Old Street and Shoreditch, the people said.

The neighborhoods are home to a cluster of startups and a nexus of hipster culture. The office will be focused on digital growth at the bank, the people said.

HSBC would join other firms that already operate technology-focused offshoots in east London neighborhoods, such as Barclays Plc’s so-called fintech accelerator in Whitechapel. While the bank in February decided to keep its headquarters in London rather than move to Hong Kong, it’s expanding out of its 45-floor skyscraper in Canary Wharf.

HSBC plans to move 1,000 retail bank workers to Birmingham, Britain’s second-biggest city, to cut costs and separate its U.K. consumer operations from the investment bank.

I agree, most of the projects seem so innovative.
By the way, I liked the pictures you post on instagram, (especially the corners of Manhattan, very nice details, the water tanks and the facades made of bricks , Epire State Building, great photography). The streets and facades of London look charming, too.

Carillion submits plan for £100m Lambeth College

Lambeth College and its development partners, Carillion and Arlington Real Estate, have lodged plans for a new £100m college in London’s Nine Elms district.

Under the college funding plan, Carillion will build a major vocational skills centre for mainly construction and catering trades supported by future capital receipts from the sale of over 200 private apartments, affordable housing and a 180-bed hotel in the rest of the scheme.

The new Skills Centre is expected to cost £45m to build, and will also benefit from up to £22m of funding from the London Enterprise Panel.

Simon Eastwood, managing director at Carillion Developments, said: “This is a pioneering project for the UK’s Further Education Sector, which will utilise the expertise of employers, working in partnership with the college, to address skills shortages in sectors such as construction.

Absolutely!

Thank you so much mate. That means the world to me. NYC was great for the architecture. Although IMHO I believe that London cannot be beaten in architecture. The genius juxtaposition of structures and the variety and layers of architecture is mind-blowing.

An example being one of my friends from California visiting. She'd never been outside of the US. We took the train from Essex to Fenchurch Street and she immediately recognized Canary Wharf from shows like Dr.Who and Sherlock, she loved the terraced houses in East London and then she saw the City of London skyscrapers that she ADORES. Her favourite is The Gherkin. When we walked outside of the station everything that we take for granted she went crazy for! In one scene she drooled over the City of London Roman walls, took 1,000 pictures of the Shard, pointed out and took selfies of Black Cabs and Red Double Decker Buses, and nearly crying over the Tower of London... and that was in that little tiny space of London. It's a wonderful City.

Anywho's thanks again for the compliment, photography is my passion.

I agree, I even have a cup with London's famous landmarks (Elizabeth Tower, Red Double Decker Bus, Red telephone box, Tower Bridge), it's my favorite cup and I live in the south of Europe.
The contemporary skyscrapers look very inovative and so fresh.

It's future isn't certain at present, but preliminary works are under way.

“Stingray-shaped” timber roof for London Crossrail station

Austrian firm Wiehag is now assembling an engineered timber roof for one of the new stations servicing London’s Crossrail.

The Abbey Wood station, the eastern terminus for a section of the new railway, has been designed by architect Fereday + Pollard to resemble a stingray, and will be topped by a 1,600-sq-m glulam roof.

In addition to the glulam timbers, which are pre-fabricated using computer-numerically-controlled (CNC) technology, assembly of the roof support structure requires 30 tons of steel.
