I like the green to be honest. I think it makes the building a lot less bland looking.

Work starts on Europe’s tallest modular residential block



Work has started on construction of Europe’s tallest block of flats using purely modular construction at a site in south London.

The 26-storey tower is London housing developer Pocket’s most ambitious scheme to date in the capital.

Use of modular construction on the Mapleton Crescent site in Wandsworth will shave around six months off the tower’s total build time and see the project completed in summer 2018.

Modular units are being constructed at the Vision Modular Factory in Bedford where all internal finishes, M&E installations, windows, external insulation and some external finishes are applied.

Pocket specialises in designing compact starter homes for singles and couples with an average household income of around £37,000. The £40m scheme will provide 53 affordable flats to be sold outright at a discount of at least 20% to first time buyers and 36 private flats.

It is the developer’s fourth modular construction project and will feature a green ceramic cladding system and communal roof terrace on the 24th floor.

Barratt Said Nearing Deal for Bulk Sale of 300 London Apartments

Barratt Developments Plc is close to completing the sale of about 300 London apartments to U.S. investor Greystar Real Estate Partners LLC, according to a person with knowledge of the plan.

The apartments are spread across four developments being undertaken by the U.K.’s third-largest housebuilder and some have yet to be built, said the person, asking not to be identified because the plan is not public.

The homes will be valued at about 250 million pounds ($310 million) when completed and will be offered for rent by Greystar, the person said.

Spokesmen for Barratt and Charleston, South Carolina-based Greystar declined to comment.

Developers in central London are turning to bulk sales as demand for luxury apartments wanes amid higher taxes and increased supply.

AXA's Backing of 22 Bisopsgate & Brexit | London

Publisher: The Architects' Journal

Article Title: Why AXA’s backing of 22 Bishopsgate is backing for Brexit Britain

Article Link: https://www.architectsjournal.co.uk/...014563.article


Article facts
  • AXA has strong confidence in London property market.
  • "The fundamentals that attracted banks and insurers to London in the first place remain: language, time zone, legal system and quality of staff and support."
  • 22 Bishopsgate to be tallest skyscraper in the City of London
Quote:
The post-referendum world looks a little rosier following a decision to press ahead with the tallest tower in the City of London, says Richard Waite


The decision by French investment manager AXA and its overseas pension fund-backed sidekicks to press go on PLP’s 22 Bishopsgate Tower in the City of London is significant.

The signing of final construction contracts at the end of last month means the long-awaited and much-written-about development of the site will finally happen.

At a time when Brexit uncertainty remains undiminished, some have even described the commitment of hundreds of millions of pounds to build the speculative 62-storey office block as ‘iconic’.

And here’s why. When the £500 million scheme eventually completes in 2019, the 120,000m2 building will be the tallest in the Square Mile, and only 30m short of the 309m Shard across the Thames.
The article is continues in the link - it's a very interesting read.

Derwent approves two London schemes after post-Brexit review



Developer Derwent London has approved construction starts on two major projects in the capital as demand for space outstrips last year.

The firm decided to go-ahead with its new Brunel building in Paddington and the revamp of the former Saatchi building at 80 Charlotte Street in Fitzrovia after seeing rental rates rise in the West End and Tech belt of London.

The two projects will involve a further spend of £320m on top of preliminary works at both sites.

In a trading statement this morning John Burns, chief executive officer, said: “We are encouraged by our letting and disposal activities since June.

“Despite uncertain market conditions, our brand of good quality space at mid-market rental levels continues to attract occupiers.

“Given our positive lettings and sound financial base, we are progressing our major developments in Paddington and Fitzrovia, which are both due for completion in 2019 and expected to deliver attractive returns.”

Asian investors agree billions for East London construction



Asian companies have rubber-stamped a deal to invest billions of pounds into London over the next five years.

Chinese developer ABP has pledged to invest £1.7bn in the next eight years in its Royal Albert Dock project, which will be supported by its partners CITIC Group and Thai company Charoen Popkhand Group (CP Group).

The agreements were confirmed at the East London – China Investment Summit yesterday as part of the Chinese Vice Premier Ma Kai’s visit to the UK.

The £1.7bn Royal Albert Dock investment will fund construction of up to six of the first phases of the project with work starting in early 2017.

Chinese firm CITIC is lead contractor on the job where Multiplex is also working on the first phase.

ABP, CITIC and CP Group have also set-up the The East London Development Group which will invest in other infrastructure and housing projects in the area.

Chairman of ABP, Mr Xu Weiping, said: “These major investments are a vote of confidence to the UK and London market following the Brexit vote.

“East London is fast becoming one of capital’s most exciting places to do business and we are pleased that other Asian companies have seen the potential and are also now investing in the area.”

Mayor of Newham, Sir Robin Wales, said: “The project will start construction early next year, and is designed as a comprehensive business-led mixed used development including up to 845 new homes.

Huge new station planned for Ilford ‘to meet Crossrail demand'



Plans for a huge new glass-fronted station at Ilford were submitted today as part of a package of improvements for the start of Crossrail services.

A new ticket hall flooded with natural light and designed by architects Atkins will replace the Cranbrook Road station, which has been criticised as a “ghetto” by some passengers.

There will also be new lifts for step-free access to all platforms from street level, longer platforms, improved lighting, signage, customer information points, CCTV and overhead information screens.

Network Rail’s proposed improvements come after Transport for London opened a new ticket hall in York Road as part of its station upgrades.

The first Crossrail trains on the new Elizabeth line will start passing through Ilford from May next year with up to 12 services an hour into central London by May 2019.

Matthew White, Crossrail surface director, said: “These major improvements will make travelling through Ilford station a vastly better experience for the many thousands of people who use it every day.

It'll be interesting to see what the Canary Wharf cluster looks like once all of the projects are completed. Have always preferred that cluster than The City in terms of aesthetics.
