Good to see all these banks threatening to move are still happy enough to press on with £billions worth of new office space in the city.

Smacks of just saying stuff to get better business rates from the government over actually moving anywhere.

It's a very exciting development to see rise. A few London forumers have recently moved into the first completed sections at Lower Riverside.

Hill starts 408-home London Fish Island scheme



Housing association Peabody has got the green light to provide hundreds of new homes and commercial space in Hackney Wick, East London.

Contractor Hill will now start work on the first phase of Fish Island Village development, which lies next to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

The housing projects at Neptune Wharf and Monier Road, will include affordable rent, shared ownership, and intermediate market rent homes. There will also be some private sale and market rent homes.

The initial phase of 408 homes and workspace, designed by Haworth Tompkins, will be spread over 13 buildings on the site of former warehouses next to the Hertford Union Canal.

These buildings will sit alongside structures by Pitman Tozer and Lyndon Goode Architects in the later phases taking the development up to 580 homes with 44,000 sq ft of workspace operated by The Trampery, a London-based social enterprise.

Winners named for £350m London Underground civils

London Underground has named its preferred contractor teams for its £350m Future Stations’ Civils and Tunnelling Works framework.

Joint ventures between Morgan Sindall/BeMo and Taylor Woodrow/Bam Nuttall have won places on all three lots covering civils, tunnelling and combined civils and tunnelling.

Hochtief was also successful but only secured a place on the third combined civils and tunnelling lot with the other joint ventures.

The eight-year framework is part of London Underground’s plans to upgrade its stations – including Camden, Elephant and Castle and Paddington.

Work packages will include the construction of new station entrances, ticket halls and platforms including associated tunnelling and shaft works.

An error in the article above: the Mayor hasn't rubber-stamped the height change to 22 Bishopsgate (yet to be decided by the City of London), only changes to its base.

Heathrow starts work on third runway planning application

Heathrow has announced it has started preparation of a planning application to expand the airport with a new runway.

The application is intended to be formally submitted in 2019, after the government has designated the National Policy Statement.

It comes after the government finally chose Heathrow as the location for a new runway in the south east in October.

Heathrow said it will undertake “extensive engagement and consultation with local communities and other stakeholders” on various aspects of the scheme including environmental impacts and project design.
