Canary Wharf es un gran complejo de negocios de Londres, situado en la Isla de los Perros en el barrio londinense de Tower Hamlets, en la zona de los Docklands.

 

En Canary Wharf se encuentran los tres edificios más altos del Reino Unido por detrás de The Shard: One Canada Square (también conocido como la torre de Canary Wharf) con 235,1 metros de altura y las torres de HSBC, adquirida por Metrovacesa por 1.600 millones de euros en 2.007, y Citigroup Centre, ambas de 199,5 metros de altura. En 2009 Metrovacesa tuvo que devolver la torre al banco (que nunca llegó a contabilizar la transacción en sus libros), con unas pérdidas de más de 100 millones en el camino.1

 

Entre 1802 y 1980, la zona fue uno de los puertos más concurridos mundialmente, llegando a tener hasta 50.000 empleados. Canary Wharf toma su nombre a partir del comercio marítimo tan importante que tenía el Reino Unido con las Islas Canarias que eran un lugar estratégico en el siglo XVI.

 

Durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial, el puerto fue bombardeado y casi todos los depósitos de mercancías fueron destruidos. Tras una breve recuperación en los años 1950, la industria portuaria comenzó a declinar, haciéndolo menos productivo que otros puertos fuera de la ciudad, como Felixstowe o Harwich, provocando el cierre del puerto.

 

El proyecto de remodelación de la zona comenzó en 1981 con el gobierno de Margaret Thatcher. En 1987-88 la premier británica barajó instalar aquí la colección de arte del barón Thyssen, a fin de que contribuyese a revitalizar la zona, pero el barón prefirió la oferta de Madrid.

Canary Wharf is a major business district located in Tower Hamlets, East London. It is one of the United Kingdom's two main financial centres – along with the traditional City of London – and contains many of Europe's tallest buildings, including the second-tallest in the UK, One Canada Square.[1][2]

 

Canary Wharf contains around 16,000,000 square feet (1,500,000 m2) of office and retail space, of which around 7,900,000 square feet (730,000 m2) is owned by Canary Wharf Group.[3] Around 105,000 people work in Canary Wharf[4] and it is home to the world or European headquarters of numerous major banks, professional services firms and media organisations including Barclays, Citigroup, Clifford Chance, Credit Suisse, EY, Fitch Ratings, HSBC, Infosys, J.P. Morgan, KPMG, MetLife, Moody's, Morgan Stanley, RBC, S&P Global, Skadden, State Street and Thomson Reuters.

 

Canary Wharf is located on the West India Docks on the Isle of Dogs.

 

From 1802 to 1939, the area was one of the busiest docks in the world. After the 1960s, the port industry began to decline, leading to all the docks being closed by 1980.[6][7] Of the three main docks of the West India Docks, the Canary Wharf estate occupies part of the north side and the entire south side of the Import Dock (North Dock), both sides of the Export Dock (Middle Dock) and the north side of the South Dock.

 

Canary Wharf itself takes its name from No. 32 berth of the West Wood Quay of the Import Dock. This was built in 1936 for Fruit Lines Ltd, a subsidiary of Fred Olsen Lines for the Mediterranean and Canary Islands fruit trade. At their request, the quay and warehouse were given the name Canary Wharf.[8]

 

After the docks closed in 1980, the British Government adopted policies to stimulate redevelopment of the area, including the creation of the London Docklands Development Corporation in 1981 and the granting of Urban Enterprise Zone status to the Isle of Dogs in 1982.[7]

The Canary Wharf of today began when Michael von Clemm, former chairman of Credit Suisse First Boston (CSFB), came up with the idea to convert Canary Wharf into a back office. Further discussions with G Ware Travelstead led to proposals for a new business district.

 

The project was sold to the Canadian company Olympia & York[9] and construction began in 1988, master-planned by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill with Yorke Rosenberg Mardall as their UK advisors, and subsequently by Koetter Kim. The first buildings were completed in 1991, including One Canada Square, which became the UK's tallest building at the time and a symbol of the regeneration of Docklands. By the time it opened, the London commercial property market had collapsed, and Olympia and York Canary Wharf Limited filed for bankruptcy in May 1992.

 

Initially, the City of London saw Canary Wharf as an existential threat. It modified its planning laws to expand the provision of new offices in the City of London, for example, creating offices above railway stations (Blackfriars) and roads (Alban Gate). The resulting oversupply of office space contributed to the failure of the No 1 Canada Square project.

 

In 1997, some residents living on the Isle of Dogs launched a lawsuit against Canary Wharf Ltd for private nuisance because the tower interfered with television signals. The residents lost the case.[10]

 

In December 1995 an international consortium, backed by the former owners of Olympia & York and other investors, bought the scheme. The new company was called Canary Wharf Limited, and later became Canary Wharf Group.

 

Recovery in the property market generally, coupled with continuing demand for large floorplate Grade A office space, slowly improved the level of interest. A critical event in the recovery was the much-delayed start of work on the Jubilee Line Extension, which the government wanted ready for the Millennium celebrations.

 

In March 2004, Canary Wharf Group plc. was taken over by a consortium of investors, backed by its largest shareholder Glick Family Investments[11] and led by Morgan Stanley using a vehicle named Songbird Estates plc.

 

At the peak of property prices in 2007, the HSBC building sold for a record £1.1 billion.[12]

 

In March 2014 planning permission was granted for the second residential building on the Canary Wharf estate, a 58-storey tower including 566 apartments plus shops and a health club.[13]

 

In July 2014 Canary Wharf Group was granted planning permission for a major eastwards expansion of the Canary Wharf estate.[14][15] The plans include the construction of 30 buildings comprising a total of 4.9 million square feet, including shops, 1.9 million square feet of commercial offices and 3,100 homes.[14][15] Construction is planned to commence in autumn 2014 with the first buildings to be occupied at the end of 2018.[14]

 

In 2014, Singapore listed Oxley Holdings, together with developer Ballymore UK, have a joint venture to set up a new waterfront township of Royal Wharf with 3385 new homes housing over 10,000 people.

[004/2013]

La plaza de España, en Madrid, está llena de fincas huecas, atrapadas en carísimas compraventas que la explosión de la burbuja inmobiliaria congeló. Se ha ido convirtiendo en un decorado de western almeriense, en el que detrás de las fachadas no hay nada. Siempre había tenido algo de inhóspita, de incómoda para el peatón; ahora se ha vuelto aún más desapacible. Es una anomalía en pleno centro, un corte brusco en la tan turística y transitada Gran Vía. Uno llega a la acera del Edificio España, con escaparates que pasaron a mejor vida, y cree cambiar de barrio, hasta de ciudad. El caso paradigmático es el del Edificio España: 68.000 metros cuadrados en plena Gran Vía para los que el banco Santander no encuentra uso. El rascacielos es uno de los iconos del desarrollismo franquista y del pálido intento de convertir la Gran Vía en Manhattan. En su momento álgido, unas 3.500 personas cruzaban el vestíbulo cada día. En 2005, la constructora Metrovacesa lo vendió por 389 millones a Banif (del banco Santander). Antes de la crisis, se publicó que se había encargado la rehabilitación integral a los estudios Ruiz Barbarín y Rubio & Álvarez-Sala, pero que el proyecto de viviendas de lujo y un hotel se detuvo poco después de la salida del último inquilino, en 2007. En definitiva, nadie mirando a través de las ventanas...

 

The Plaza de España, in Madrid, is full of hallow properties, caught in very expensive dealings, frozen when the Real estate bubble blew up. It has been turning in a Spaghetti western set, where there is nothing behind its façades.

This square had always been something unaccommodating, uncomfortable for the pedestrian; but now it has become even more unpleasant. It is an anomaly in down town, a sudden cut in such a traveled and tourist Gran Vía Avenue. One comes to the sidewalk of the Edificio España, with shop windows that went on to a better life, and one believes that has changed of neighborhood, even city.

The paradigmatic case is the Edificio España: 68.000 square meters (80.920 yards), in the center of the Gran Vía, for that the Santander Bank (Banco Santander) doesn’t find use. The skyscraper is one of the icons of the pro-Franco policy of economic development and the pale attempt of turning the Gran Vía Avenue into Manhattan. In its algid moment, some 3.500 people crossed the lobby every day. In 2005, the Metrovacesa construction company sold it for 389 millions (in Euros) to Banif, a bank of investments property of Banco Santander. Before the financial crisis, it was published that the integral rehabilitation of the building was entrusted to the Ruiz Barbarín and Rubio&Alvarez architect's offices, but the project of a hotel and luxury apartments was stopped soon after the exit of the last tenant, in 2007. Definitely, nobody is looking across the windows in 2013...

El Edificio España es un rascacielos de Madrid (España) ubicado en Plaza de España. Con sus 25 plantas y 117 metros de altura, es el octavo edificio más alto de la capital española. El edificio diseñado como multifuncional albergaba hasta el año 2006 el Hotel Crowne Plaza, un centro comercial, apartamentos, viviendas y oficinas. Actualmente se encuentra vacío y sin uso. Sólo conservará intacta la fachada y el vestíbulo, ya que el resto de elementos estructurales se han modificado. Emplazado en la Plaza de España, al final de la Gran Vía, conforma junto con el rascacielos vecino Torre Madrid, uno de los conjuntos arquitectónicos más importantes de la ciudad.

 

English

The Edificio España (Spanish: Spain Building) is one of the tallest buildings in Madrid, Spain. With 25 stories and a height of 117 m (384 ft), it is the 14th tallest building of the Spanish capital, along the Cuatro Torres Business Area highrise buildings. It is also one of the best examples of 20th century architecture in Spain. It was designed by architect Julián Otamendi (architect of the nearby Torre de Madrid) and his brother, engineer Joaquín Otamendi in the Neo-baroque style and constructed from 1948 to 1953. It was the tallest building in Spain until overtaken by the Torre de Madrid in 1957. The building formerly contained a Crowne Plaza Hotel, a shopping centre, apartments, offices, and a rooftop swimming pool. Since its sale in 2005, it has been vacant awaiting renovation into luxury residences. The facade and the lobby will be preserved intact but the remaining structural elements will be modified. Its profile, on Plaza de España at the end of the Gran Via, compliments the neighboring skyscraper Torre de Madrid, making the pair important architectural landmarks in the city.

Metrovacesa, which owned the structure since its completion, marketed it in April 2005 along with the neighboring Torre de Madrid and other properties in its portfolio to help finance its acquisition of French property company, Gecina. In June of that year, the investment fund of Santander Real, acquired 50% of the building for €138.6 million and committed to purchase the remaining 50%, belonging to the hotel, shortly thereafter. The deal closed in early December 2007. Santander plans to renovate the building, but states that acquiring the necessary approvals in Madrid always takes time. The structure has been vacant awaiting work to begin since the sale.

El edificio se comienza a construir en 1948 por la Compañía Inmobiliaria Metropolitana (propiedad de los Otamendi), en el solar que forma el chaflán con la plaza de España y con la calle Princesa. Fue finalizado en el 1953 en estilo neobarroco, siendo obra del ingeniero José María (que calculó la estructura de hormigón) y el arquitecto Julián Otamendi (diseño de planos y de la portada barroca de su fachada principal). Presenta una silueta escalonada en cuatro alturas.

 

El día 28 de abril de 2005 fue puesto a la venta por la inmobiliaria Metrovacesa junto con la Torre Madrid, para sufragar parte de la adquisición de la compañía francesa Gecina, por un precio total de 389 millones de euros. En el mes de junio, Santander Real Estate, a través de su Fondo de Inversión Inmobiliaria, adquirió el 50% del edificio por 138,6 millones de euros y se firmó un compromiso de compraventa por el mismo precio del 50% restante, la parte perteneciente al hotel. La operación se completó a principios del mes de diciembre del mencionado año.

 

Tras su venta por Metrovacesa al Banco de Santander en 2005 y un proceso de rehabilitación de la fachada, a la altura del 2012 el edificio se encuentra totalmente cerrado y sin uso previsto.

Canary Wharf is a large business complex in London, located on the Isle of Dogs in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.

In Canary Wharf are the three tallest buildings in the UK: One Canada Square (also known as Canary Wharf Tower) with 235.1 meters high and HSBC towers acquired by Metrovacesa of 1,600 million euros, and Citigroup Centre, both of 199.5 meters high.

Between 1802 and 1980, the area was one of the busiest ports worldwide, growing to up to 50,000 employees. Canary Wharf takes its name from the maritime trade with the Canary Islands.

During the Second World War, the port was bombed and almost all the warehouses were destroyed. After a brief recovery in 1950, the port industry began to decline, making it less productive than other ports outside the city, such as Felixstowe or Harwich, shutting down the port.

The remodeling project area began in 1981 with the government of Margaret Thatcher.

One Canada Square (also known as the Canary Wharf Tower) is a skyscraper in Canary Wharf, London, England. The building is famous for being the tallest building in the United Kingdom since 1991, standing at 770 feet (230 m) above ground level and containing 50 storeys.

 

The building was designed by principal architect Cesar Pelli, who based the design and shape mainly from the World Financial Centre and Big Ben.

 

One of the predominant features of the building is the pyramid roof which contains a flashing aircraft warning light, a rare feature for buildings in the United Kingdom. The distinctive pyramid pinnacle is at 800 feet (240 m) above sea level.

 

The building is primarily used for offices, though some retail units are on the lower ground floor. One Canada Square remains as a prestige office building being 100% let. The building is recognised as a London landmark and it has gained much attention through film, television and other media because of its status as the tallest building in the United Kingdom.

Wikipedia

 

8 Canada Square (also known as HSBC Group Head Office, or HSBC Tower) is a skyscraper located at Canary Wharf in London Docklands. The building serves as the global headquarters for the HSBC Group, the world's largest company by the Forbes Global 2000 in 2008 and houses around 8,000 staff.

 

The tower was designed by Sir Norman Foster's team of architects. Construction began in 1999 and was completed in 2002. There are 45 floors in the 200 metres (656 ft) high tower, the joint third tallest in the United Kingdom with the Citigroup Centre.

Citigroup Centre is a building complex in London. It houses Citigroup's EMEA headquarters and is located in Canary Wharf in the city's Docklands. The centre provides for 170,000m² of floor space across two merged buildings - 33 Canada Square (known as "CGC1") and 25 Canada Square (known as "CGC2"), and houses the bulk of Citi's UK employee base. Together, both buildings form the Citigroup Centre complex.

 

33 Canada Square, or Citigroup Centre 1, is the smaller of the two buildings in the complex, designed by Norman Foster and completed in 1999, two years before its neighbour. At 105 metres (344 ft) tall, the building is made up of eighteen floors, all of which are adjoined to their equivalent floors in 25 Canada Square. The building is owned by Citigroup, and was built before the completion of the Jubilee Line extension in late 1999.

 

In contrast, 25 Canada Square, or Citigroup Centre 2, stands at 200 metres (656 ft) and, alongside HSBC Tower (with which it was built in tandem), is the joint 3rd-tallest building in the United Kingdom (behind One Canada Square and Heron Tower). Designed by César Pelli & Associates, construction of the 45-storey tower - undertaken by Canary Wharf Contractors - began in 1998 and was completed in 2001, with Citigroup leasing the building from the outset. The building was bought by RBS in 2004 along with 5 Canada Square (leased to Bank of America) for $1.12 billion. Subsequently, on 2 July 2007, CGC2 was individually sold to a joint venture between Quinlan Private and PropInvest for £1 billion (US$2 billion). Citigroup pay £46.5 million a year in rent for the tower, generating a yield of 4.6% to the owners. The east facing side of 25 Canada Square up to level 40 is configured for use by tenants.

 

In addition to main entrances from both Canada Square and Upper Bank Street, Citigroup Centre is also accessible via underground walkways from Canada Place shopping mall and Canary Wharf London Underground station - served by the Jubilee Line. The Centre is also close to DLR stations Canary Wharf and Heron Quays, which provide connections with the City, London City Airport and surrounding areas.

Les obres es van reprendre el novembre de 2009 després de nou mesos d'aturades per problemes de finançament, i després que la promotora que havia iniciat el projecte, Sacresa, cedís el testimoni a Metrovacesa, que n'ha destinat 70 milions al projecte.

 

Els contratemps sorgits per la crisi immobiliària i la dificultat de construir el complex sense desmuntar la façana de la plaça de toros van disparar el pressupost del projecte fins a gairebé el doble del previst inicialment, uns 200 milions.

 

Amb una superfície construïda de 104.576 metres quadrats i sis plantes, Les Arenes tindrà 126 botigues --entre les quals destaquen per mida un supermercat Mercadona i una botiga FNAC--, 12 sales de cinema, vuit restaurants, un gimnàs amb balneari urbà, i més de 1.700 places per a cotxes i motos en un aparcament de quatre plantes.

 

Altres comerços confirmats són Desigual, Mango, Blanco, Sephora, Veritas, Punt Roma, Casa i Tous, i a més, el centre albergarà el Museu del Rock, que preveu obrir les portes el 31 de març.

 

Les Arenes tindrà una de les cúpules d'Europa més grans, de 27 metres d'altura i 300 metres lineals de recorregut circular, des de la qual s'oferirà una vista de 360 graus de Barcelona.
