Cityoffices – Offices Taking Off

The 15 year old website is the sister leads provider to the market leading Metropolis Property Research.

With the office construction sector booming in London and awakening in UK regional cities, there is a huge volume of tenders being sought and awarded as every role from architects, planners and engineers to service consultants, letting agents and acoustic consultants are being appointed on a daily basis.

Looking back over September 2015 this Cityoffices bulletin just looks at news of some of the schemes (there are 120 schemes at either construction or demolition stage in London, with over 200 planning consents in the pipeline) which have progressed in the last month and some of the schemes which developers are likely to progress in the next 2-3 years. The 25 London news stories and many regional updates in September, are backed up with full project details, including teams where appointed, on the database and included:

In London

  • Demolition started at a major mixed use site in Victoria, SW1;
  • a Southbank office block was put up for sale, with tenants vacating in mid-2016, Development team to be appointed;
  • a new planning application for a mid-size refurbishment close to the Bank of England;
  • a new start on a mixed-use scheme in Bloomsbury;
  • a historic island site demolition in Midtown to provide a new office scheme;
  • consent for a refurbishment of a large former publishers office in EC4;
