Lendlease set for landmark £350m Google HQ job

Lendlease is understood to have beaten rival Sir Robert McAlpine in the race to build Google’s headquarters at King’s Cross Goods Yard in London.

Sir Robert McAlpine emerged as a front runner in the early bid assessments for the flagship building project.

But a source told the Enquirer that Lendlease finally clinched the preferred contractor role on the strength of an impressive team. A decision was taken last Thursday on the winning outfit but the result has not been officially announced yet.

The project covering shell and core work is expected to cost around £350m to deliver.

In early bidding, McAlpine looked a firm favourite as its big London project teams were looking for a new job as they wrapped up Bloomberg’s new headquarters and the US Embassy project in Vauxhall’s Nine Elms.

Google’s new building is designed by Heatherwick Studio and Bjarke Ingels Group.

The new 650,000 sq ft complex will make up more than half of the company’s complete King Cross campus.

The Museum of London site seems to be really a poor choice for a new concert hall. It's a really claustrophobic location and right next to the Barbican. Then again, a chance to demolish the existing building could really help reshape that part of the City.

Anyone who thinks the Museum of London site would make an excellent location and setting for a new world class Symphony Hall should get their head examined.

U+I plans £300m of office refurb work



U+I is linking up with American developer Colony NorthStar Inc to spend £300m on office refurbishment jobs in London, Manchester and Dublin.

The joint venture will transform “underperforming office buildings through improved planning, development, refurbishment and asset management.”

The first projects will be The Record Store at The Old Vinyl Factory in London and Donnybrook House in Dublin.

Matthew Weiner, Chief Executive of U+I, said: “The specialist platform will target opportunities to develop high quality office space where there are limited options for new build.

“There is currently a shortage of offices across U+I’s core locations which provide the right space or environment to satisfy the needs of today’s modern enterprises.

McKinsey commits to new London office



Consultancy group McKinsey has signed a deal to move into a new building in London’s Holborn area, becoming the latest multinational to commit itself to a UK headquarters since the vote to leave the EU.

In 2018 the company, which has its London base in the West End, will move into a 100,000 sq ft building under redevelopment on the site of a former Royal Mail sorting office, where it has taken a long-term lease.

Vivian Hunt, managing partner for the UK and Ireland at McKinsey, said the move to a site known as the Post Building “represents a renewed commitment to London and UK”.

McKinsey is the latest global company to choose a London headquarters despite warnings that the vote to leave the EU would worry companies.

Apple announced plans for a new UK headquarters in the former Battersea power station in November, while the US bank Wells Fargo spent £300m on a new London headquarters within a month of the referendum last year.

I remember DarJoLe creating a mock-up of how a symphony hall could look on the Riverside South site. Now that would've been something.
