McAleer takes the Swiss

British Land has sold the Swiss Centre in Leicester Square, London WC2, to Northern Irish property developers McAleer & Rushe for a reported £47m. The most likely fate for the striking, but ugly, 9,300 sq m (100,000 sq ft) building is redevelopment into a mixed-used office and leisure complex. The new building is likely to include a hotel and recently the Irish hotel chain Jurys Doyle was linked to the site. It is worth noting that McAleer is Jurys regular contractor for its UK based hotels and should McAleer included a hotel in its plans then it is not unreasonable to hazard a guess as to who the operator will be. McAleer is declining to comment at this early stage. Jones Lang LaSalle represented British Land. - (25-10-2004)

Save Smithfield Market

Save Britain’s Heritage (SBH) is setting out to save the western buildings at Smithfield Market from redevelopment plans by the Corporation of London. SBH considers that the impending fight to be as important at that for Covent Garden in the 1970’s. The General Market buildings, owned by the Corporation of London and designed by architect Sir Horace Jones, have been vacant for at least six years. Although the entire complex is within a conservation area only about 60% of the buildings are listed.

'right to light' claim

Churchill Securities is now said to be seeking an injunction against Marks & Spencer claiming that its development at 70 Gracechurch Street, also known as Limebank House, 168 Fenchurch Street, London EC3 affects a "right to light" clause on an adjoining building that Churchill owns. It appears that discussions have not resolved the issue and the threat of legal action is making it harder for M&S to find a tenant. Churchill is thought to have made M&S an offer of £150m for the building, subject to planning consent being granted to convert the recently completed building into a 34-storey tower (which would reportedly cost another £130m).

Colliers Conrad Ritblat Erdman and Jones Lang LaSalle are the letting agents for the scheme. It has also been reported that three City firms have pulled out of negotiations for Limebank House due to the legal problems. - (01-10-2001)
