That's about one-third of the remaining floors if I'm not mistaken. Great news.

I think you're right about RS and the towers will be starting fairly soon. CW seems to be doing incredibly well at the moment.

The latest headline from EGi is "Continued demand for City development sites". I can't access the full story. Can anybody with online access tell us whether there is anything new in the City reg. proposed skyscrapers?

MINERVA ANNOUNCES THE SALE OF SAMPSON HOUSE AND LUDGATE HOUSE FOR £229 MILLION

http://www.minervaplc.co.uk/news/story.jsp?id=690

Minerva plc today announces that, in a linked transaction, it has completed the sale of Sampson House for £150.5 million and Ludgate House for £78.5 million to a private investor, both properties are located in London SE1.

Sampson House comprises 386,288sq.ft. of office space let to IBM UK Limited. The lease expires in December 2025 but, includes a mutual break clause in June 2018. The current rent is £8 million p.a. and will rise to £9.5 million p.a. in December this year.

Ludgate House comprises 173,633sq.ft. and is let to United Business Media plc at £4.87million p.a. The lease expires in March 2015 with a landlord’s break clause in 2010.

The combined sale represents a net yield of 5.9% after the purchasers’s costs, which assumes the contracted rent payable of £9.5 million p.a. on Sampson House in December 2005.

The consideration has been paid in cash and the proceeds will be utilised to re-pay associated debt and for general corporate purposes.

Salmaan Hasan, Chief Executive of Minerva, said:

“In the last four months we have entered into agreements for the sale of £634 million of property, effectively resulting in a significant reduction in our gearing to a nominal level. The total value of these sales is overall slightly ahead of our last published year end valuation figures for these properties as at 30th June 2004. With the substantial cash that these disposals have generated along with the arrangements in respect of The Walbrook and Park Place, I believe that the company is well set to deliver future growth for shareholders”.

Shares are up by 2.3% to 289p at the opening.

Not sure if its been mention but Helical Bar 18 storey Mitre Square scheme got full planning permission the other week. Alright ,if a little dull Sheppard Robson office block- Bit of a wasted opportunity IMO as its near Minerva & could go taller.

It's #12 on the map below. Almost directly between SwissRe (J) and Minerva (10) when viewed from the South Bank.

Height will be 80m/19 storeys btw, and they've confirmed that construction will start in 2006.

Yes, it was consented in the same committee as 201 Bishopsgate. They couldn't have gone taller due to light constraints... they've effectively put as much floorspace and height on there as they possibly could. The site is also next door to a school, so there are some fairly unique and important overriding considerations.

The current building is nothing special, but then neither is this.

I really hope they acknowledge in that square that this was host to a Jack The Ripper murder.

I know what you mean, but lets face it - the council will never celebrate a mass murderer. He was real - it's not like he's some middle ages legend! It just aint gonna happen!

actually there's a thing about him in the councils museum of london. i agree they should have something to market each spot as jack the ripper is easily one of the most famous things this country has produced. we have blue plaques for cultural things, how about red ones for famous murders like his and crippen

ah yes, well its a little boring, I remember it now, theres a school right near it I think. But yes a plaque on a fountain or something as part of integrated public space would be good.

They're going to demolish 200 Aldersgate Street?? That's quite a prominent landmark on the City skyline.

Oh well, its replacement seems to look better from that pic you've shown above.
