Despite the uncertainty of Brexit, and what appears to be a general market slow-down, Fresson & Tee were delighted to read the latest London Office Crane Survey from Deloitte Real Estate this week.

According to the report, the amount of space under construction reached an eight-year high; with 2.8 million sq. ft. of office space added to the development pipeline, with the start of 40 new schemes.

The 40 new schemes mean that 14.8 million square feet of office space was under construction in Central London between April and September, representing the highest level since before the financial crisis.

In light of this welcomed report, Fresson & Tee’s agency team wishes the property industry a productive final few weeks of 2016!

Despite the reported uncertainty, post Brexit, affecting rental values, Fresson & Tee’s agency team were delighted to read in CBRE’s August Monthly Index that rental values across the UK’s commercial property market held firm for a second consecutive month.

According to the report, rents were generally static in August. Offices in London’s West End and Midtown saw rental values drop by -0.3, although Outer London/M25 offices performed better, with rental value growth of 0.1%. Rental values grew slightly across UK retail property, by 0.1%.

Given that August is traditionally a quite month, the data provides clear evidence of resilience in the rentals market, and is encouraging for the commercial property market as a whole. Welcome news for all!!

A vote to leave the EU confirmed.

Rebellion in the opposition party.

Fresson & Tee hosted a breakfast seminar on Building Information Modelling (BIM) at the swanky Charlotte Street Hotel last Thursday.

Associate Director and lead architect, Haakon Gittins, presented the seminar to a range of blue chip and private property clients including Shaftesbury, Redevco and Workspace.

BIM is the natural evolution of 2 dimensional CAD to 3 dimensional digital modelling of buildings and provides a combined database of information relating to its construction, operation and maintenance.

Using live working examples, Haakon led our clients through its use in practice and gave his thoughts and insights as to how BIM is likely to lead to the end of CAD in building design and construction.

The seminar was a resounding success with all attendees enjoying a scrumptious buffet breakfast.

Axe Stamp Duty!! Let’s Hear Your Views…

Share this page: 

SDLT

The Commercial Agency Team at Fresson & Tee recently read an interesting article in The Times, by George Trefgarne regarding the government’s top priority – housebuilding.

This issue is subject to great debate. The figures do not lie, and the current target of building 250,000 a year estimate required by population growth, is far behind in reality. So, how does the chronic shortage of housing get resolved?

Trefgarne has a radical idea. He proposes that the government axe stamp duty altogether and replace it with a flat rate of 1 percent to be paid by both the buyer and the seller. He claims, any short-term loss of revenue would be rapidly offset by enhanced transaction volumes, the benefits of a deep, liquid, rational market and by increased construction.

Could this be the solution to the housebuilding crisis?

Fresson & Tee would love to hear your opinion on this matter.

Buy-to Let Changes In The Residential Property Market. Let’s Hear Your Views.

Share this page: 

According to a survey published in The Times on the 4th January 2016, half a million residential properties will come onto the housing market over the next five years as landlords sell up after George Osborne’s changes to buy-to-let rules.

Separate research by the National Landlords Association suggests that the chancellor’s changes to tax relief will increase rents by between £29 and £113 a month. The impact is likely to be greatest in London, where average rents are now £1,134 a month and would need to rise almost 10 per cent to cover the cost of the tax change. The Northwest of England and Wales are likely to be least affected.

Could this start the necessary correction of, or result in, landlords exiting the residential market? Are there any other asset classes that are more attractive for landlords to invest in than the residential sector?

Fresson & Tee would love to hear your views on the matter.

We were recently in a building in Central London’s Air Street where some very impressive exposed pipework was noticed by Fresson & Tee’s commercial property team.

candy-striped

The Guardian reports that the owners of a property in Kensington have painted the façade of their house in red and white stripes, possibly in retaliation for neighbours complaining about plans to transform their property into a five-storey home with a two-storey basement.

Kensington and Chelsea council initially refused planning application for the new building, but then allowed it at appeal.

Neighbours have launched their own appeal in the high court.

Painting the building does not require planning permission, the council said.

King’s Cross’s coming of age…….

Fresson & Tee has leased the 2nd and 3rd floors at 1 Brandon Road to Fourways Communications Limited.

The recently refurbished floors extending to 3,833 sq. ft. were leased on a 5 year term at close to their asking rent of £22.50 per sq. ft.

The loft style offices with great views over Central London had considerable interest due to the accommodation’s good specification and economic rent.

Moving from Shakespeare to Monty Python in 2 sentences should be difficult, particularly when one is mainly ignorant of both…..but now for something completely different.

Departing from F&T’s usual deals done blog or retweet of someone else’s news, Fresson & Tee enters new territory with this article.

Fresson & Tee is a chartered surveying practice that has a very active building consultancy which has an almost conveyor belt like programme of restoring, preserving and improving period buildings in prime areas of central London.

One could state that we are therefore champions for historic buildings.

That said, the author of this piece has controversial views about listed buildings, their preservation and how they can impede development.

I am a strong believer for contemporary alongside old.  This in itself creates a new character for an area.  Something old should not stand in the way for something new, in my opinion.  In this respect, I am probably a pariah for the firm that I represent.

But where do I stand on mixing contemporary with period?  In the last week, I’ve come across 2 examples, which are at opposite ends of the spectrum in terms of their aesthetical success.

I was lucky enough to see the now not so new glass roof of the British Museum from the 33rd floor of Centre Point.  It provides an interesting mix of modern and period, mostly hidden from the public eye.  Interesting, possibly controversial but, designed sympathetically.  The same could be said for the majestic new roof at King’s Cross Station which provides a perfect partner to the period building to which it is attached.

And then there is the other extreme……Even with my own enjoyment of a well designed contemporary building, I was left amazed at what saw whilst on route to a meeting near Old Street.

Could a completely new property term be created if we were to refer to this building as a Frankenbuilding?  Where the coming together of old and new perhaps does not work in a pleasing way.

Would this be stepping on the toes of Prince Charles and the Carbuncle Award?

Not sure, but I would be interested to see if there are any other obvious buildings which could fall into the Frankenbuilding category.

The views of this article are in no way reflective of Fresson & Tee’s views and are solely the observations of the author, David Shapiro.

When you drink water, think of its source….

Share this page: 

饮水思源 or When you drink water, think of its source, if you don’t speak Chinese, is an important Oriental philosophy that is meant to remind one of the fundamental virtue of being grateful and not forgetting ones roots.

This philosophy inspired a new public art sculpture, designed by Chua Boon Kee on a building at the junction of Gerrard Place and Shaftesbury Avenue.  The sculpture itself is an interesting play on surface and lines using modern sculptural techniques.

Fresson & Tee’s long involvement with China Town ensured that its work was represented in the public unveiling, albeit in a minor supporting capacity.
