Wednesday 25th October was the UCL Construction & Property Society's second outing of the year. This time we were invited by Reactive Integrated Services (RIS) for a tour of their flagship project, the redevelopment of 1 Canon Row.
The former Canon Row Police Station had the most prestigious role within the Metropolitan Police with responsibilities for the Royal Family policing Buckingham Palace, Clarence House, St James’ Palace and 10 Downing St. Much of the exterior of the building is unaltered since it was built in 1898-1902 and is grade II* listed as is within the Whitehall Conservation Area.
Wednesday 4th October was the UCL Construction & Property Society's first outing of the year to the exciting new White City Living redevelopment in West London. St James Property Developers, part of the Berkley Group, offered us the opportunity for a sneak peak into their latest project.
The site which is bordered by three London Underground lines and sits only meters away from the former BBC Television Centre and the popular Westfield Shepherd's Bush shopping centre, will be transformed into the five stage, high-end residential development pictured below. The project will create 1,477 new luxury homes complete with gym, business pods, swimming pool and two 12-seater cinemas, as well as landscaped gardens, and a few small commercial units between the listed railway arches.
