Evening Standard on London Property (Still no news of Hammerson/Westfield and Whitgift Centre?)

Aldgate: "Last Friday’s announcement that homes instead of offices are to be built on a two-acre abandoned office plot on the eastern rim of the City marks an upturn in the fortunes of Aldgate and a downturn in the reputation of a hapless US developer who gambled millions on a huge office scheme that never got out of the ground."

City: "The 38-storey concrete core of Land Securities’ Walkie-Talkie tower on Fenchurch Street looked neck-creakingly close to full height on Tuesday. A three-minute stroll up to Leadenhall Street found the steel frame on British Land’s 52-storey Cheese grater jutting just five storeys above ground."

Nine Elms: "Over the coming decades, the 480-acre zone centered on New Covent Garden and Battersea Power station will be shaped very differently [from Docklands].
What has been set up instead is an economical but rather conflicted private-public partnership, made up of developers who own the land, and those whose job, one day, will be to grant or refuse planning permission."
[We know all about that at Brent Cross, don't we?]
