The size alone of Fulham Gasworks is enough to make it impressive.

ISG wins £22m London office rebuild



ISG has landed a £21.7m project to modernise and extend a 1930s office building close to London’s Fenchurch Street Station.

The radical transformation and upgrade of Walsingham House will see the firm demolish the interior building structure while retaining the period Portland stone façade.

New piled foundations will allow construction of a steel frame structure, adding two extra floors to the existing eight-storey building and creating nearly 50% more internal office space.

Externally, the retained façade will be cleaned and restored, and to achieve a targeted BREEAM Excellent rating, ISG will upgrade glazing with high performance units sympathetic to the original art deco window designs.

Located in a conservation area, Walsingham House lies opposite the Grade I listed St Olave’s Church and adjoins a four star hotel.

Network Homes buys land near Southall Crossrail station for 500-home regeneration project

Plans for a £200m regeneration scheme have moved forward after a deal was struck over the land. Housing association Network Homes purchased a 6,600 sq m site in Southall, west London, from developer Galliard Homes for the 500-home project.

A planning application is now expected to be submitted this summer for the proposed development, with a start on site anticipated in spring 2018.

The development would provide a mix of studio and one, two and three-bed homes, as well as “substantial” commercial space at Merrick Road, which is within the Southall housing zone.

The site is close to Southall Crossrail station, which will run services to central London and Heathrow from May 2018.

A 2018 completion date for Tottenham's new stadium seems unrealistic with the progress made so far.

I love the pics in the two posts above. Great to see how much the skyline has grown in 10 years. But bear in mind: these pics don't even show all additions, as The Shard, Canary Wharf and plenty of other towers are not in the frame.

Funding secured for £100m London Stratford tower



Specialist student accommodation builder Watkin Jones is set to start work on a 33-storey scheme at Stratford in East London. The decision to go-ahead follows operator UPP and The University of London securing a £104.7m funding deal for the project.

Its Duncan House scheme on Stratford High Street will rise to over 100m and joins a cluster of tall buildings in the area.

It will provide over 190,000sq ft of new accommodation and will involve UPP operating 511 new study bedrooms and communal space for the length of the concession.

Demolition work is already underway on the site with construction due to start in March.

The scheme designed by Hodder + Partners also includes 44 flats for sale, which will be sold by Watkin Jones.

Sean O’Shea, Group Chief Executive Officer of UPP said: “The University of London is a world-renowned institution and we are delighted to have reached financial close on this landmark transaction in East London.
