Cityoffices – An October Taster

Below is the October 2015 taster for – the sister leads provider to the market leading Metropolis Property Research.

With the office construction sector booming in London (the just published Deloitte/Cityoffices Crane Survey reveals an 18% construction rise since spring 2015) 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 October 2015 this Cityoffices bulletin just looks at recent 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 London news stories and many regional updates in October, are backed up with full project details, including teams where appointed, on the database and included:

In London

  • New application on a 200,000 sq ft City of London building;
  • A Midtown building bought with potential to combine with an adjacent building to form a 50,000 sq ft scheme;
  • A demolition start to make way for a new City of London office tower;
  • A bank submits an application for a 20,000 sq ft refurbishment in EC2;
  • Consent for a new 375,000 sq ft office scheme in the Aldgate area;
  • News of the latest major pre-lets on office schemes in central London.

Outside London

  • Construction start on a central Birmingham scheme;
  • Developer buys a site in Bristol to house its next speculative scheme;
