Work restarts on British Land’s Cheesegrater

first_imgThursday 27 January 2011 7:48 pm Share Work restarts on British Land’s Cheesegrater CONSTRUCTION work has restarted on the Cheesegrater tower on Leadenhall Street after developers British Land and Oxford Properties agreed to fund the £340m project as a joint venture. The 47-storey tower, officially named the Leadenhall Building, was shelved in 2008 amid uncertainty in the London property market. Builders returned to the site yesterday to restart work on the foundations of the tower, with completion due in 2014. The Cheesegrater will stand 736ft (224m) high with around 610,000 square feet of available office and retail space. “The Leadenhall Building … will complete at a time when we believe strong demand and supply constraints will coincide,” said British Land’s head of development Nigel Webb, adding that several potential tenants have already expressed an interest in the tower.

William Hill grows Iowa presence with new retail locations

first_imgWilliam Hill will operate the new retail services through its wider partnership with Caesars Entertainment.

Consumers in Iowa can visit either retail location to place bets or open a mobile betting account, with Iowa restricted to in-person registration for new customers.

How will the stamp duty holiday affect the Rightmove share price?

first_imgHow will the stamp duty holiday affect the Rightmove share price? Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares If you are looking to buy a house in the UK, it is more than likely the first place you will look is Rightmove (LSE:RMV). The company has more than an 80% share in the property portal sector according to its annual report. The Chancellor recently announced a stamp duty holiday to help boost the housing market. Surely this can only be good news for the Rightmove share price?5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Rightmove share priceThe Rightmove share price has fallen more than 15% since the start of the calendar year. However, the share price has been more resilient than most in the FTSE 100, which has lost nearly 19% of its value. This resilience is due to its dominant market share and excellent balance sheet. Rightmove is one of the most profitable companies in the FTSE 100. Its underlying operating profit is a whopping 75% according to its annual report. Nearly 70% of this profit was returned to shareholders via dividends or share buy backs last year.Revenue slumpRightmove’s revenues are generated by charging estate agents to access its property portal. The housing market was forced to close for seven weeks due to the coronavirus. In response, Rightmove discounted its fees by 75% between April and July to help support estate agents. Further discounts will be in effect until September.To help preserve the balance sheet Rightmove has suspended its interim dividend and introduced cost cutting measures. I believe the short-term revenue slump and future loss of profit is already included in the Rightmove share price.Stamp duty holidayThe Chancellor’s stamp duty holiday was introduced to support the housing market. Help is needed as economic uncertainty and high unemployment are not good conditions for be buying a house.Early indications are that this stimulus could work in the short term. Estate agents have been inundated with new vendors looking to capitalise on the stamp duty holiday. On 8 July Rightmove had over 8.5m visits to its website, one of its busiest ever days. Short-term optimism regarding the housing market could help the Rightmove share price bounce in the short term.Increased competitionThe number of traditional estate agents is declining. They are closing due to high office rents, fees, and increased online competition, such as Purple Bricks. Online competition is a long-term risk to the Rightmove share price as traditional estate agents are its biggest revenue producer.There is also increased competition in the property portal market. On the Market is a credible competitor, which is majority owned by estate agents. Its unique selling point is that estate agents are offered equity in the business in return for portal listing exclusivity.Long termIncreased competition and reduced revenue from estate agents is a long-term concern. In order to maintain its market share, permanently reduced fees may become necessary. The stamp duty holiday is excellent news for estate agents, which is excellent news for Rightmove. However, despite the short-term boost, the long-term outlook is mixed. I do not foresee the Rightmove share price surpassing its previous highs any time soon.

The Blues head into the semi finals after win over the Waratahs

first_imgSaturday Jun 25, 2011 The Blues head into the semi finals after win over the Waratahs This weekend the two qualifiers for the Super Rugby semi finals took place, with the Blues and Crusaders both heading through to the last four. The Blues beat the Waratahs 26-13 yesterday, so here’s a look at some of the highlights if you missed the game. Other clips, such as tackles etc, might be posted separately.The Waratahs, ravaged by injury, simply couldn’t get up for this one as their lack depleted side struggled to cope with a strong second half showing from the the Blues.Center Tom Carter, who scored for the ‘Tahs, says that getting close simply isn’t good enough.“If this group is fair dinkum about winning the comp, we probably have a year or two left realistically. We can’t keep blowing opportunities. We have made the semis three of the last four years and that’s incredible, and we’d like people to recognise that. But we are also very aware that turning up and having a close semi-final isn’t good enough in professional sport,” he said.Blues captain Keven Mealamu was predictably more upbeat following the win for the three-time champions. They will face the Reds in Brisbane next weekend.“We’re really happy with the way we’re going at the moment,” he said. “There was a lot of emotion during the week and that’s probably why we didn’t get off to as good a start as we would have liked.“But after 20 minutes we got back into our work and I was really happy with the team.” Time: 03:48ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
