PM May to tackle old runway problem



Prime Minister Theresa May is expected to decide where to allow new airport capacity near London this month, a long-awaited ruling that will help shape Britain's economy and trading ties following its vote to leave the European Union.

May will either support plans for a new runway west of London at Heathrow, the busiest airport in both Britain and Europe, or at Gatwick to the south. The decision has been debated for more than 25 years and any further delay could risk economic growth as both sites near full capacity.

At $22 billion, Heathrow would be the more expensive project and face legal challenges over its environmental impact on densely populated west London. But its established trade links with emerging markets strengthen its case in the wake of Brexit. It also has the backing of the major airlines.

For its part Gatwick, the country's no. 2 airport that mostly connects to Europe, argues it can build a runway more quickly and cheaply and that its rural position means it would disturb fewer people with noise and air pollution.

The decision has split successive governments, faced with protests from high-profile politicians, local residents and environmental campaigners. But May told her party last week an announcement would be made "shortly".

"She is the kind of person who won't baulk at making a decision," former Conservative transport minister Steve Norris said at an event on the sidelines of their party conference.

Industry sources say they expect a decision this month.

Three options are under consideration: building a new runway at Heathrow for 18 billion pounds, lengthening one of its existing two runways for an estimated 14 billion pounds, or building a new runway at Gatwick for 7 billion pounds.

TfL starts £1bn London Silvertown Tunnel bid race



Transport for London has started the hunt for at least three bidders for its £1bn Silvertown road tunnel project in East London.

The river crossing will be constructed as a twin-bore road tunnel just east of the existing Blackwall Tunnel with connections to the A1020 Silvertown Way at the north and to the A102 Blackwall Tunnel Approach at the south.

Under the present delivery plan user charging will be applied to manage congestion and help fund the scheme.

Construction is expected to start in 2018/19 for completion in 2022/23.

TfL will award the project as a design, build, finance and maintenance deal in east London, with four and half years of construction before a 25-year operational phase.

Google Said to Revive Plan to Construct London Headquarters

Alphabet Inc., the parent company of Google, is seeking a construction firm to build its new London headquarters in the King’s Cross district after reviving plans for the project, according to two people familiar with the matter.

The technology giant has invited building companies to pitch to construct the project, which was approved in 2013 and later shelved for a more ambitious development, the people said, asking not to be identified because the process is private.

Google aims to start building the headquarters before the end of next year, the people said. Spokeswomen for Google and Argent LLP, the developer of the site, declined to comment.

Two months after Google won approval for the 920,000 square-foot (85,000 square meter) building next to King’s Cross railway station, the company scrapped the plans, which included a roof-top running track, in favor of building “something even better,” Joe Borrett, Google’s head of real estate and construction, told The Telegraph newspaper at the time.

The decision to start searching for a contractor for the project underlines London’s enduring appeal to technology companies even after the U.K.’s vote to leave the European Union. Apple Inc. agreed to lease 500,0000 square feet at the Battersea Power Station development on the River Thames last month.

Grainger to start £60m North London PRS scheme



The firm said this morning that it aimed to start a £60m construction programme next year.

The Tottenham project involves demolition of an existing building and construction of a main 22-storey building, an associated seven storey plinth building and four townhouses.

Designed by architects John McAslan + Partners, Apex House will deliver 163 new homes – 104 private rented, 59 affordable at discounted market rents. Hoare Lea is the M&E consultant on the project.

Apex House is adjacent to Grainger’s Seven Sisters Regeneration scheme, which has planning consent and will deliver a further 196 rental homes, following a Compulsory Purchase Order process which is currently being undertaken by the London Borough of Haringey.

Last month Grainger secured the former Yorkshire Post site in Leeds city centre for £40m.

This scheme will comprise 242 purpose-built rental homes over 18 floors with 72 car parking spaces.

Gilbert Ash set for £21m South London drama school



Builder Gilbert Ash has got the planning green light to build a new Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts in South London.

The firm is expected to start building work early next year on the 100,000 sq ft academy, which will be built on a brown field site called Eagle Wharf next to Peckham’s award-winning library.

The part-three-four-and-five-storey building was designed by Carl Turner Architects. Inside, it will have a 200-seat main auditorium, 80-seat studio theatre and rooftop restaurant.

Training facilities include 19 rehearsal studios, two further performance studios, music practice rooms, two TV studios and a radio suite.

Government confirms backing for all of HS2



The whole HS2 high speed rail line including links to Manchester and Leeds is going ahead.

The Transport Secretary Chris Grayling yesterday confirmed that the government is committed to pressing ahead with HS2 to tackle the looming capacity crisis and to help boost jobs.

He also confirmed construction would begin on the scheme in the first half of next year.

The Transport Secretary’s statement quashes speculation that the second phase north of Birmingham could either be delayed or cancelled.

Grayling said: “We need HS2 now more than ever.

“We need HS2 for the capacity it will bring on the routes between London, the West Midlands, Crewe, Leeds and Manchester as well as the space it’ll create elsewhere on our transport network.

“We need it for the boost it will give to our regional and national economies. And we need it for the jobs it will create, and for the way it will link our country together.”

He has also confirmed plans to make £70m of government funds available to support local communities and road safety along the route between London and the West Midlands.

Dollar Bay may not be as tall as the ones behind it but it's certainly just as nice looking.

Can't remember seeing this graphic before (although it's not new). Each dot represents a residential tower over 20 storeys, and the larger the dot the taller the tower. It comes from here: http://www.estatesgazette.com/blogs/...is-came-power/
