A Chinese Company Will Build London's Tallest Tower, Brexit or No

In 2013, the architecture firm HOK was approached by a representative of the Greenland Group, China’s third-largest developer.

“They said they were investing in London and that they’d made an offer on a parcel,” said HOK Senior Vice President Larry Malcic, who sat, on a recent afternoon, holding a cup of tea in his firm’s London office. “They’d done their homework.”

The land in question was a run-down warehouse adjacent to Canary Wharf, an area in the far eastern end of the city that grew popular in recent decades for its proximity to London’s financial center.

Nothing in the area, however, would match what the Greenland Group hoped to build: an £800 million ($996.9 billion), 67-story tower, which, when completed, would be the tallest residential tower in Western Europe.

“From the beginning, they saw it as a fundamentally residential tower,” Malcic said. “And they wanted to get value out of the site, so we’ve gone as tall as you can go.” (That’s a literal statement: Any higher and the tower would violate London City Airport’s flight path.)

The building, which is named the Spire, is designed as a three-petal, undulating tower. Its position on a bend of the Thames provides unparalleled views of London in all directions, and its amenities, including a 35th-story lounge with an infinity pool, an entire floor devoted to recreation rooms, and even an outdoor covered track, would place it at the (literal) top of London’s booming luxury real estate.

And then, just as the building broke ground, the U.K. voted to leave the European Union and London’s real estate market, which had already been showing signs of weakness, began to crumble.

The Greenland Group vowed to forge ahead with the building. “The UK’s vote to exit the European Union (“Brexit”) cannot be said to have had no effect on the property market in London, and we are aware that there could be some turbulence in the future," wrote Wenhao Qian, managing director of Greenland Investment Ltd., in an e-mail.

"Developments of note, as well as iconic buildings, are continuing to do well. We feel that the advantages of London—its global cachet, cosmopolitanism and being a centre of world trade—bode well for a positive future for both the property market and the wider economy.”

Chinese buyers increase focus on London property market



Chinese investors have increased their focus on London’s property market, partly because of the fall in the pound and partly because there are signs of an end to China’s own property bubble.

Sales of homes in the capital’s most exclusive areas to Chinese buyers have risen since the Brexit vote, while investment into commercial property from China is on track to grow this year, even as other investors draw back.

“The British currency is at a 30-year low; the Chinese housing market is at a 25-year high. Why look any further?” said Terry Li, a project director for Beijing-based CY Infotech and owner of a home in Kensington, west London.

Juwai.com, an online property portal, said it received a record number of inquiries from Chinese buyers about British properties in September.

Before that, in the third quarter of 2016, Chinese purchases of upmarket London homes rose to 2.6 per cent of home transactions from 1.8 per cent the previous quarter, reversing a period of decline, according to estate agents Hamptons International.

Charles McDowell, a high-end London estate agent, said Chinese homebuyers were “out there and looking to spend big money … they are buying small residential units but also great big lumps”.

Mr McDowell said he had sold a £160m Mayfair home to a Chinese buyer since the Brexit vote. “The weak pound has made a difference to them. In fact, it has saved the London property market,” he said.

The increase in the commercial property market was even more pronounced: in the six months leading up to the Brexit vote, Chinese buyers poured $1.7bn into London commercial property, a 75 per cent rise from a year earlier, according to Knight Frank, a property consultancy.

Funding woes worsen for London Garden Bridge



Building work on London’s Garden Bridge cannot start until all the funds needed to finish the controversial project have been found, the landowner for the South Bank of the Thames has said.

“We all want to be sure that if the thing begins to be constructed that it gets completed”, said Iain Tuckett, group director of Coin Street Community Builders, which is responsible for maintaining part of the South Bank and must agree to its long lease on it being altered.

“None of us wants to be left with a half built bridge, although I suppose it could be quite entertaining.”

He also said he was seeking “reassurance” that the Garden Bridge Trust would be able to raise money to pay the £2m-£3m a year maintenance bill once the bridge is built. “It is a hell of an ask of charity trustees to manage in perpetuity the security, cleaning, gardening, maintenance, the whole works.”

Mr Tuckett said that, at first, “[the Garden Bridge Trust] simply did not really address the issues we wanted them to focus on” but that many issues have been “gradually resolved” over the course of this year.

The move means Coin Street is following the mayor and government in taking a firmer position towards the Garden Bridge Trust, which needs to raise £56m towards the £185m bridge.

Its builders are on standby after it signed a construction contract earlier this year. The government has provided £60m, most of which has been spent on pre-construction preparations. Earlier this year the mayor said he would commit no more public money since this would be to “throw good money after bad” while the government reduced a guarantee it had provided to the project.

Not a big fan of the green.

I cannot wait for Stratford Waterfront. I love the use of brick.
