London’s Waterloo in the limelight as Asian buyers eye new-builds



In the 30 years following the second world war, Waterloo went through a period of state-sponsored brutalism as a run of concrete cultural buildings replaced the derelict warehouses and factories that hugged the south bank of the Thames.

The Royal Festival Hall, a large concert space, was built in just 18 months to form part of the 1951 Festival of Britain site. To this were added the National Film Theatre (1957), the Hayward Gallery (1968) and the National Theatre (1976).

The stretch has prospered as a cultural hub in the intervening years. Many of the blocks of flats that went up around the same time have not fared as well, however, yielding to the wrecking ball as the vogue for glass and steel replaced that for concrete.

Today’s spate of new developments in Waterloo first hit its stride 10 years ago, says Nick Pearce of local agent Circa London. Back then, Asian buyers — mainly from Singapore, Hong Kong or Malaysia — comprised half his clients. Most had a connection with the area, having studied nearby, and were returning to buy investment properties.

The area’s numerous students provide regular rents, and many foreign buyers are seeking accommodation for their own children during their university years. Many future doctors, businessmen and government officials of the UK and beyond also come to the area for their studies.

Some will train at one of the two teaching hospitals that border Waterloo: Guy’s, beside London Bridge to the east, and St Thomas’, by Westminster Bridge to the west.

Aspirational bankers, civil servants and policy wonks might favour King’s College London — whose main buildings sit on the north side of Waterloo bridge — or the London School of Economics and Political Science, headquartered a few hundred metres to the north of King’s College.

New developments are once again on the horizon. The south bank of the Thames, including Waterloo and the stretch between Vauxhall and Battersea Park, is predicted to be one of the busiest areas in London for high-end new-builds over the coming decade.

The 8,800 new homes that will be built over the period collectively will be worth roughly £14bn, according to Arcadis, a design and architectural consultancy. The six schemes in Waterloo will provide a total of 1,780 units.

Overseas buyers will be key players in the next stage of expansion. Those from Hong Kong and mainland China especially are reaping the benefits of a weak pound and falling prime London market to secure discounts of up to 40 per cent off the peak, says Pearce. To avoid the punitive stamp duty on high-value homes, most prefer buying several smaller units to one large one, he adds.

Skanska signs off £60m Great Ormond Street deal



Skanska has finally signed off a £60m contract with Great Ormond Street Hospital to build the Zayed Centre for Research into Rare Diseases in Children in London.

The firm secured the job to build the third phase of the children’s London hospital redevelopment after preferred bidder Bouygues failed to agree a price at second stage tender earlier this year.

Skanska will be responsible for the design, construction and mechanical and electrical fit-out of the facility, which will operate as a partnership between Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust, University College London and Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.

The contract award builds on the successful working relationship that Skanska has established with Great Ormond Street Hospital while working on the Premier Inn Clinical Building, the second phase of the redevelopment, which will complete the Mittal Children’s Medical Centre.

Work is due to start in January 2017 and set to conclude in late 2018.

City's tallest tower OK'd as Parry scheme clears planning
28 November 2016 | By Louise Dransfield

1 Undershaft, which already has a nickname, will be close to 305m when built

Eric Parry’s 73-storey skyscraper is to become the tallest tower in the City of London after the corporation’s planners approved the designs this morning.

The new skyscraper, which is being masterminded by Singaporean developer Aroland Holdings and has been dubbed the ‘Trellis Tower’ for its criss-cross façade, is expected to open sometime in the 2020s with the scheme needing up to six years for demolition and construction.

It will take the title of the Square Mile’s tallest tower from the Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners-designed Leadenhall Building which is a stone’s throw away from the planned new tower.

Parry said: “1 Undershaft represents the very best of British architecture and will set new standards for the City in terms of comfort, quality and environmental sustainability.

“It is a vote of confidence in the City of London. 1 Undershaft will crown the cluster of tall buildings and will be a tower London can be truly proud of. This is a really exciting opportunity for Londoners and the team behind 1 Undershaft are thrilled to get started on the next phase of the project.”

Parry’s tower will be just under 305m after it was lowered 5m in September following concerns from aviation authorities about it interfering with flight paths.

It will be built on the site of GMW Partnership’s 1969 St Helen’s building, currently occupied by insurance giant Aviva, which is set to be demolished to make way for the new scheme.

Speaking to BD, Parry admitted he had regrets that St Helen’s, which was damaged in the 1992 IRA Baltic Exchange bombing, would be torn down.

But he said: “It [St Helens] has suffered extreme harm in terms of its exterior and its re-clad so you don’t get a sense of joy of looking at a wonderful period piece anymore. Given its neighbours and the development of the cluster, what it actually does is block up what could be an extremely interesting set of spaces at the bottom of the buildings which is what this building [1 Undershaft] responds to.”

Once completed, the new tower will provide 154,100sq m of floorspace, including 2,178sq m of retail space and 1,220sq m of restaurant space.

It will also feature two floors that will be managed by the Museum of London at the top to provide a public viewing gallery and educational space for children.
