Facebook to Hire 500 New Staff in Major U.K. Expansion

Facebook Inc. is to increase its U.K. headcount by 50 percent, hiring 500 new staff and backing the U.K. capital as an important technology hub.

The social media company is moving to a new London headquarters in 2017, and has plans to up its headcount from 1,000 to 1,500, the company said in a statement Monday.

“Many of those new roles will be high-skilled engineering jobs,” said Nicola Mendelsohn, Facebook’s vice president for the EMEA region. “The U.K. remains one of the best places to be a tech company and is an important part of Facebook’s story.”

The announcement extends a recent string of similar promises made by major U.S. tech companies regarding their plans in the U.K.

Last week Google cemented plans that it would expand in the U.K., saying it will go-ahead with plans to complete a new London office that can hold as many as 7,000 workers -- 3,000 more than a spokesman said it currently employs in the U.K.

Apple Inc. said in September it is leasing about 500,000 square feet (46,451 square meters) of office space at Battersea Power Station on the south bank of London’s River Thames.

Facebook arrived in London in 2007, and the U.K. is now home to its largest engineering base outside of the U.S. Its Workplace offering, which lets employees collaborate with one another on products, was developed in the U.K. capital.

In the statement on Monday, Facebook noted the breadth of nationalities -- over 65 -- it employed in London.

Londonís second tallest tower set for approval



Plans to build Londonís second tallest skyscraper at the site of Avivaís London headquarters have been recommended for approval.

The tower at 1 Undershaft, now nicknamed the Trellis for its visible structural steel cross-bracing, would take the title of the Square Mileís tallest skyscraper, if built.

Next week the City of London Corporationís planning and transportation committee are expected to rubber stamp the project following the chief planners recommendation for approval.

Singapore-based developers Aroland Holdings commissioned architect Eric Parry to design the 73-storey landmark building.

It will rise to 305m, just above the recently approved 22 Bishopsgate tower at 278m, but a few metres below the Shardís tallest steelwork point in London Bridge.

The 90,000 sq m building would be able to accommodate 10,000 people and boast a viewing platform higher than that of the Shard, and Londonís highest public sky restaurant.

Mace set for £54m Twickenham East Stand revamp



Mace is in the front row to extend Twickenham rugby stadiumís east stand as part of a plan to improve the match day experience for supporters.

The Rugby Football Union is planning to spend £54m extending the stand outwards to add six levels for hospitality and conference events.

Designed by Mott MacDonald, the redevelopment plan will double the available space on the east stand to around 220,000 sq ft but not affect the existing bowl infrastructure and seating.

Mace was originally brought on board as project manager and is now understood to be set to convert to the main contractor role.

Subject to planning approval, construction could start in March 2017 with the project aiming for completion in June 2018.

It'll be 290m.

Which is why we don't bother posting data from news articles in the London forum. They routinely conflate AOD with AGL (as above) and post outdated figures (as above).

It's part of the reason I take time posting "project facts" with every development here, instead of cutting and pasting news articles, because those articles are too often incorrect.

We (myself or someone else from the London forum) will post the actual planning decision when it's made next Monday by the City of London, including the actual project facts.

Fairview and L&Q team up for Park Royal site



Fairview New Homes and housing association L&Q have formed a joint venture to develop a 5.5 acre mixed-use site in Park Royal, north west London. The former car park forms the third phase of the First Central development in Lakeside Drive.

The cleared site was purchased for more than £40m and also comes with outline consent for 60,000 sq m of office space and will contain 800 apartments. The site was formerly part of the Guinness factory and previous residential phases have been completed by Bellway, Redrow and Catalyst HA.

The Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC) Planning Committee has produced a planning brief for a residentially-led mixed-use scheme.

The Fairview/L&Q joint venture has retained architects, Allies and Morrison, to design a scheme in excess of 800 apartments with commercial space on the ground floor.

Fairview Land Director Richard Paterson said: “We are delighted to be working with L&Q in a 50/50 joint venture for the first time and we welcome more joint projects of this type.

“This location is already ‘tried-and-tested’ with the success of an earlier phase and its proximity to Park Royal underground station on the Piccadilly Line and Hanger Lane on the Central Lane, not to mention direct access by road to the A40 Western Avenue and the A406 North Circular.”
