Issue 94

There's some good news for London's real estate sector this week which we had to share, plus we talk about what's new at Gallery 46 and our association with Modern Shows this weekend!

London Ranked Top

You can understand why we were drawn to this headline when we saw it on the City AM property section the other day – music to our ears you could say. While we are clouded in the uncertainty that has taken over 2019, it has been revealed that for the third year on the trot London has been ranked as the top European city for long-term commercial real estate investment potential.

Six categories were configured to generate this ranking and London scored top for five of them; investment, inspiration, innovation, infrastructure and interconnection. Inclusion was the final category and London received second place for that one which made us come out on top overall – a worthy and well-deserved title indeed!

Considering Brexit and the ambiguity surrounding it, the resilience shown by the capital’s strong and growing technology sector played a substantial role in securing this ranking. It seems positive that many well-established businesses have chosen London to locate their global headquarters; according to City AM ‘Although there is Brexit uncertainty around the capital, London is open for investment and business from around the globe, and whatever the outcome of Brexit, this will never change.’

In addition, Jules Pipe, London’s deputy mayor for planning, regeneration and skills, declared: ‘London is the best city in the world -creative, diverse and full of opportunity.’ That’s the kind of positive attitude that we need and we love hearing it.

Londonewcastle & Modern Shows

Diaries at the ready because on Sunday October 13th the Mid-Century East Vintage Interiors Show, brought to you by Modern Shows, will be held at Ernö Goldfinger’s Haggerston School in east London. This year, in celebration of the current refurbishment of Balfron Tower in Poplar, Londonewcastle is sponsoring the event, as well as hosting a stand where they will be giving more information about the project, along with the amenities and apartments in the scheme which are now available to buy.

Londonewcastle will be standing amongst over 55 various vintage furniture and homeware dealers in this location, which really couldn’t be more apt for the occasion. Haggerston School is deemed to be one of Goldfinger’s most dramatic works of architecture, which welcomed its first students in early 1966.

This showcase is the perfect opportunity to celebrate Balfron Tower and the legacy of Ernö Goldfinger, as the restoration of this ground-breaking building signifies a momentous time in the heritage of Brutalism and its place in London’s skyline.
So why not go and see what all the fuss is about this Sunday from 10am-4pm and pay us a visit! For more information visit https://bit.ly/2MmLksT

David James' Storyboard at Gallery 46

You know what they say, ‘good things come in threes’, which is exactly why David James is back for his third exhibition at Gallery 46 with ‘Storyboard’.

Until 31st October, his latest exhibition will follow ‘Civilisation’ and ‘Automatter’ in a trilogy where James has investigated the cycle of human existence, using his art to explore life, loss and rebirth on a deeper level. ‘Storyboard’ conveys the unexpected ways in which life unravels, displaying a collection of works that show portraits of people that represent those who James is still yet to meet, whether is be in this life or the next.

Some familiarity has been kept across all three installations, especially James’ use of hair, which is such a moving aspect of his work as it reflects back on a time when his wife was going through chemotherapy treatment.

This exhibition is one not to miss and Londonewcastle is proud to present this renowned British artist once again.
