General Discussion / Blackwall Yard development
« Last post by The Dome Ranger on June 29, 2020, 07:32:49 PM »
Work will start soon on Blackwall Yard, the development on the Reuters car park.
The boards have gone up and the first work will be to demolish the small building on the site.
Then in the next week or two, the latest plans will be revealed. Restaurants and opening up the riverside pass would be a welcome bonus.

There has been a round of consultation on the development of tower block for about 850 homes, a primary school, restaurants and shops. And the latest plan may include a swimming pool. Keep an eye out for the next round of consultation on their plans. The boards around the site have permission to be there for the next 5 years, hopefully they can complete any building before that timescale.

Blackwall Yard
We have been working up proposals for a vibrant mixed-use development at Blackwall Yard, two minutes walk from East India DLR Station.
Our vision is to create a new neighbourhood here which opens up the site, respects the history of the area and brings to life this part of the Thames front. Our scheme will provide new connections through the site and along the Thames Path, as well as a two-form primary school, waterside public spaces, cafes, shops, community uses and a range of homes to suit London's housing need. 
We will be launching our consultation for the site next month (July) and will be providing an online exhibition hall for you to see, and feed back on our proposals whilst we are still unable to meet face-to-face.


Plans to be unveiled for Thames swimming pool site

Regeneration specialist Hadley Property Group has completed the purchase of its largest site to date at the 1.7 hectare Blackwall Yard on the north bank of the Thames.

Plans are now being finalised to develop the former shipbuilding dock into 850 market sale alongside a primary school, cafes and shops and a sustainable transport hub.

A key focus of the scheme is converting the neglected Blackwall Yard Graving Dock into an outdoor swimming pool.
Hadley will reveal details of its masterplan for the site during a series of digital consultation events in July.
The design team comprises Glenn Howells Architects, White Arkitekter and Panter Hudspith.

Andy Portlock, Chief Executive Officer at Hadley Property Group, said: “Blackwall Yard is one of the last great regeneration sites along the Thames, and the completion of this acquisition, particularly in the current climate, provides a significant opportunity for Hadley.
“Now our largest scheme, Blackwall Yard demonstrates the continued expansion of our portfolio as we remain focussed on delivering inclusive, innovative developments in London.

“An important part of East London’s ship building history, we will transform the site from an underutilised car park into a brand new waterside neighbourhood comprising more than 850 homes, a primary school, community hub and the reimagined graving dock for the people of Tower Hamlets.
“We have worked closely and collaboratively with the Council throughout the pre-application process and look forward to engaging with the neighbouring community on our proposals next month.”

General Discussion / City Airport reopens tomorrow - June 21
« Last post by The Dome Ranger on June 20, 2020, 07:19:13 PM »
The familiar sound of planes flying overhead will return tomorrow.

London City Airport is gradually reopening for business, starting with flights to domestic locations and leisure destinations in Europe. Its first flight in almost three months – a British Airways flight between the Isle of Man and London BA3287 – is due to arrive at 6.10pm on Sunday.

Loganair will begin offering flights to Dundee on 6 July, the same day that Eastern Airways will start flying to Teesside. British Airways is now selling tickets from City to leisure destinations such as Ibiza, Florence, Málaga and Palma, but Europe’s main business hubs are yet to return to the menu.

A survey conducted by City between 8 and 15 June showed that nearly half its customers are planning to travel for leisure in the next three months. The airport, which has been closed since March 25, is putting new restrictions in place to ensure the safety of its passengers. Only those travelling with a valid ticket will be admitted to the terminal and they will be asked to wear a face mask while at the airport. City’s survey showed that 76% of travellers would choose to wear a mask anyway.

General Discussion / Re: Service Charge Increase
« Last post by SJ on May 15, 2020, 06:04:09 PM »
Yes there has been an increase.
Around £3400 a year Now.
Most related to the water works/footpath  repairs near the front and vat is now charged on the payroll costs. It was detailed in the accounts they sent.
Costs gone up very steeply last 2-3 years. Some am sure is due to the previous manager Ashley who did a lot of changes on the estate to put his stamp on the place who thankfully has gone now but still high.
