BBC £252m "live news centre"

The BBC is to spend £252m creating a “live news centre” at Broadcasting House, Portland Place, London W1. The development will start shortly with the demolition of Egton House, an adjoining building, starting in January 2003. Bovis Lend Lease has been appointed as the construction manager. The 9 to 13 storey complex has been designed by Sir Richard McCormac and will include 140 studios, a central atrium, and a huge newsroom. All the BBC’s radio operations and television news will be brought together in the building. The first stage of the project is the refurbishment and extension of Broadcasting House, a 1932 Grade II* listed building, and the demolition of four adjoining properties to create two new buildings of about 74,321 sq m (800,000 sq ft). The scheme will be completed by 2008. - (16-12-2002)

Broadcasting House plans

The BBC is said to be about to go ahead with the redevelopment of Broadcasting House in Langham Place, London W1, behind the Grade II listed facade. The 46,451 sq m (500,000 sq ft) building would be redeveloped by Land Securities Trillium, which includes Bovis Lend Lease, and could take six years to complete. The scheme will increase the useable floorspace by 6,967 sq m (75,000 sq ft) to about 50,167 sq m (540,000 sq ft). The construction work is estimated to be about £200m and technology costs account for another £200m. An application for planning permission may be made by November 2001. - (29-07-2001)

BBC prefers Land Securities

The BBC has announced that Land Securities Trillium as the preferred bidder in its proposed property partnership. Land Securities submitted a joint bid with Trillium, the outsourcing group, last year. The Land Securities team is also understood to include Bovis Lend Lease. The BBC's reserve bidder is Amey. If Land Securities/Trillium secure the deal the first project is likely to be the £200m development of the White City site in London W12, which could provide 60,000 sq m (645,840 sq ft). The Grade II listed Broadcasting House in Langham Place, London W4 is included in the property portfolio and the BBC is also said to be renegotiating its lease on Bush House, Aldwych, London WC2, which expires in 2005, and could be a refurbishment project. - (25-03-2001)

Revised skyscraper design unveiled

A revised design for a 80-storey skyscraper at London Bridge station, by Italian architect Renzo Piano, is now being put forward by developer Irvine Sellar. The 390m (1,279 ft) tower will include 65,031 sq m (700,000 sq ft) of offices and 18,580 sq m (200,000 sq ft) of flats along with hotel and retail space. A planning application could be submitted to the London Borough of Southwark by the end of the year but is likely to be determined by the Greater London Authority. The skyscraper would not be completed before 2005 and construction costs are put at £300m. Bovis Lend Lease is the project manager. The scheme is unlikely to proceed without a major pre-let and the developer is said to be in discussion with firms including Pricewaterhouse Coopers. - (13-11-2000)

CSFB takes pre-let at Canary Wharf

Credit Suisse First Boston has agreed Heads of Terms to lease a further 46,451 sq m (500,000 sq ft) of office space at 5 Canada Square (site DS1) Canary Wharf, London E14. DS1 is currently under construction and the architect of the 14-storey tower is Skidmore Owings & Merrill (SOM). The new office space is due to be due for occupation in spring 2002. The leasing of building will mean that CSFB has 1.8m sq ft at Canary Wharf in seven buildings. In 1999 Bovis Interiors carried out the fitting out work for CSFB at its Columbus Courtyard office. Once CSFB has signed a binding agreement on the Canada Square building the pre-let will prompt the speculative construction of HQ3, a 32-storey tower, designed by Cesar Pelli, that will provide 55,741 sq m (600,000 sq ft) of office space. - (09-11-2000)
