That project will offer discounted rental accommodation for creative industry and TMT workers, plus discounted rates for TMT occupiers, so hopefully it'll be one of many such schemes in this area.

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan backs £220m transport schemes

Sadiq Khan has pledged £220m for local transport and public space improvements across London.

The mayor of London said the cash would be used by all 33 boroughs for projects to reduce dangers on the roads, transform local areas, encourage cycling and walking, and improve air quality.

Among the schemes set to start in 2017/18 that will benefit are a £1m revamp of Beckenham town centre; widening and decluttering of cycle paths in South Norwood; and improvements to the junction of Sangley Road and Sandhurst Road in Lewisham.

Mr Khan said: “I’m proud that through the new Transport for London Business Plan we are creating a modern and affordable transport network for the capital, and am delighted that we are able to invest an increased level of funding across the boroughs next year too.

“By making walking and cycling easier and safer, and funding projects that will improve air quality, we can help boroughs right across the capital to deliver transport and public space improvements that are going to make a real difference to the lives of Londoners.”

Earliy the month the mayor outlined how his five-year business plan for TfL aimed to cut waste and save £800m a year.

As much as I love all these residential towers going up, unfortunately at night they don't look so great with all the lights off.

Keepmoat lands £50m Westminster estate revamp



Keepmoat has been appointed to build 195 luxury homes in the City of Westminster. The £50m Maida Vale development for Latimer, part of the Clarion Housing Group, is the latest partnership model undertaken by Keepmoat.

The company will deliver flats for open market sale, affordable home ownership and social rent for Latimer.

Half of the scheme is being sold back to Westminster by Latimer and £20m created from the open market sales will be reinvested to support the remaining estate improvement works, including the remodelling of the 11-storey Tollgate House and community centre.

Originally built in the 1960s, the estate was identified as a priority regeneration project in Westminster City Council’s Housing Renewal Strategy in 2010.

The existing low-rise blocks will be demolished to make way for the new apartments.

Kerry Kyriacou, group director of development at Latimer, said: “Building for Market Sale is fundamental in enabling us to fulfil our core social purpose. Each year we invest every penny of our surplus, and more, in the supply of new affordable housing.

ISG wins £70m Imperial College biomedial hub

Imperial College London has chosen ISG as preferred contractor to deliver a £70m project to construct its new Michael Uren Biomedical Engineering Research Hub.

The Hub is one of the flagship buildings at the College’s growing White City Campus in West London.

Work on the Hub is due to start on site in early 2017 and is scheduled for completion in 2019. The 14-storey arrow-shaped facility will feature a hybrid concrete and steel frame structure.

A full-height steel frame nose cone, forming the apex of the arrow, will house the building’s complex mechanical and electrical services infrastructure.

A glazed façade with prefabricated and geometrically distinct concrete fins to two elevations will provide solar shading.

Danny Blakeston, managing director of ISG’s engineering services business, said: “Securing our latest major project for Imperial at the White City Campus is a major achievement for the business. It cements our reputation as a specialist in the delivery of highly-engineered spaces.”

The scheme builds on ISG’s extensive experience delivering laboratories and research and development facilities. ISG has now undertaken more than 30 projects for Imperial College London, from flagship new-build and complex refurbishment schemes, to smaller scale fit outs and individual laboratory projects.

'It's like a ghost town': Eerie pictures show central London deserted on Christmas Day

The capital’s thronging squares and rammed high streets were like a “ghost town” yesterday as millions of Londoners and tourists enjoyed Christmas at home.

Iconic hotspots such as Piccadilly Circus, Oxford Street and Covent Garden are almost always crowded and loud – but yesterday morning they were deserted.

There was almost no traffic on the roads, allowing those few who did venture out the rare chance to stroll across the centre of Oxford Circus or dance in the middle of Tottenham Court Road.

Photographer Jon Cartwright, 41, took the opportunity to photograph some of London’s busiest areas in the “eerie” Christmas quiet.

Plans revealed to bring unused White City rail arches back into use for shops and businesses

More than 30 unused railway arches in White City could be transformed into a diverse mix of commercial, leisure and retail space.

Transport for London’s plan for the arches, near Wood Lane Tube station, will also see new cycle parking and pedestrian passageways in an attempt to improve connectivity in the neighbourhood.


The 31 arches are located along the Hammersmith and City viaduct between the Wood Lane Tube station and the A3320 West Cross Route.

The arches are next to the major developments including the extension to Westfield London shopping centre and the construction of nearly 2,500 new homes, office spaces, restaurants, shops and leisure spaces.
