J S Wright lands £4m building services package



J S Wright has bagged a contract worth more than £4m to fit out a major new affordable homes scheme in West London.

The building services specialist will equip 195 houses and apartments at the former Reynard Mills Trading Estate in Windmill Road, Brentford for developer Hill.

J S Wright has been chosen by Hill as lead coordinator for the mechanical and plumbing services for the scheme, which is being built on the site of an industrial yard that used to hold the BBC’s archives.

It will provide underfloor heating, low pressure hot water heating and heat recovery ventilation for all 123 affordable apartments managed by Notting Hill Housing.

J S Wright will start work on site in December on each of the five-storey apartment blocks.

Marcus Aniol, Managing Director of J S Wright, said: “We are looking forward to our key role in bringing many more new homes to another part of London for a major developer with whom we have built a highly successful working relationship.”

It seems too fat und unproportioned imho. A midrise occupying an entire block like that should give some calmness to the area, esp. the messed up City. But instead, it's messing it up even more it seems. But let's wait and see.

For a big fat groundscraper it doesn't look too bad.

London's Centre Point Undergoes Major Transformation

Quote:
Commissioned by Harry Hyams and designed by Richard Seifert, the 34-storey Centre Point became a wayfinding tool and beacon on the London skyline in 1966. The modernist design was praised and subsequently protected by English Heritage, cementing its landmark status and architectural importance. An ambitious revival project initiated by Almacantar began in 2015, which calls for a complete conversion of the building's office space into 82 contemporary residences.
Rogers Stirk Harbour-Designed Tower Rising in London

Quote:
The site of the disused London Park Hotel is being given new purpose as property developer Mace advances on their 45-storey Newington Butts Tower. Construction is pushing the Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners-designed tower towards becoming one of the tallest residential blocks in the city, and in the process, forming a key component in the wider regeneration of the Elephant and Castle area.

Green light for next King’s Cross offices phase

Plans for the last remaining two office buildings within Zone T on the King’s Cross regeneration scheme have been granted planning.

Both mixed-use buildings are designed by Bennetts Associates and will combine office space with ground floor shops, fronting onto a new street called Canal Reach.

Buildings T2 and T3 on the northern section of the site will be named 11 and 21 Canal Reach and will rise to 12 and 10 storeys and bring an extra 500,000 sq ft of commercial space to the T Zone.

Developer Argent will reveal the construction timetable shortly with completion slated for early 2019.

The buildings’ façades forming a continuous crescent will reflect the site’s railway and industrial past, with a light bronze metallic finish.

The buildings will boast large roof terraces, giving visitors and office workers the chance to take in views of the nearby Gasholder Park and Regent’s Canal.

At least they put shops at street level instead of a solid wall like most offices.

AFC Wimbledon cleared to build new £16m stadium



AFC Wimbledon are set to return to their traditional south west London home after communities secretary Sajid Javid decided not to call in the club’s planning application.

The Dons plan to build an 11,000-seat stadium on the site of Wimbledon Greyhound Stadium were nodded through by Merton Council nearly a year ago.

But the club’s plans stalled in March when Boris Johnson, then Mayor of London, decided to review Merton council’s decision to grant approval to the scheme, following objections from neighbouring Wandsworth.

Since then new Mayor Sadiq Khan handed the powers to progress the application back to Merton Council but Wandsworth Council urged the communities secretary to intervene and halt the development.

Chief executive Erik Samuelson said: “At long last, we can start planning with confidence to give AFC Wimbledon a secure future at the heart of the community the club represents, as well as building many much-needed homes and providing a major boost to the economy of the area.

“After so many years in exile, the Dons are coming home!”

The club has partnered up with Galliard Homes to deliver 600 homes at the Plough Lane site, literally yards from the former football ground. This will help to fund the £16m cost of building the stadium.

Yeah, it's okay but definitely not my favourite. A more simple design would have gone a long way.

Apple move London HQ to Battersea Power Station | Nine Elms SW8

Website: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/bu...-a7335221.html

Publisher: The Independent

Global giant Apple are going to their current London HQ to the newly developed and iconic Battersea Power Station. In total Apple will account for 40% of the development’s total office space.



Quote:
Apple is to establish a new London headquarters at Battersea Power Station, one of the city's most recognisable landmarks.

The tech giant will occupy about 500,000 square feet of space across six floors of the central Boiler House from 2021, moving 1,400 employees there from eight offices around the capital.

It will account for 40 per cent of the development’s total office space.

Apple currently has 2,530 staff in total in London, including about 1,100 working in its stores.

Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, said the deal is a “sign that London is open to the biggest brands in the world and the leading city for trade and investment".


The move follows a multi-billion pound restoration of the former power station, which has stood unoccupied for decades on the banks of the River Thames.

In a statement to the London Evening Stantard, Apple said it was looking forward to the opening of its “new campus”.

“This is a great opportunity to have our entire team working and collaborating in one location while supporting the renovation of a neighbourhood rich with history,” a spokesperson for the company said.

Battersea Power Station is owned by Malaysian shareholders Sime Darby, SP Setia and The Employees Provident Fund (EPF).

Apple’s main European headquarter will remain in Ireland, where it employs 4,000 people.
Great news for the Nine Elms area in general. It'll definitely give confidence in the projects going on there.
