London development pipeline
In June 2013 we committed to the speculative development of 1 & 2 New Ludgate, EC4 comprising two distinct buildings united by a new public piazza. Together they comprise 355,000 sq ft of office accommodation and 26,000 sq ft of restaurant and retail facilities.
The Rafael Viñoly-designed 525 ft tall City tower incorporates premier office accommodation, a café and a unique publicly accessible Sky Garden with three bespoke catering offers - the highest public park in London. 50% owned JV with Canary Wharf Group.
This mixed-use development provides 260,000 sq ft of offices, together with street level shops and restaurants in the heart of Victoria.
The Zig Zag Building offers 188,000 sq ft of high-end commercial office space on an island site surrounded by restaurants, retail and an imaginative new public realm.
Building on the success of New Street Square, with its striking architecture and high profile business occupiers, One New Street Square will be the final jewel in the crown of the landmark development. The building was pre-let in its entirety to Deloitte LLP more than 12 months ahead of completion.
In February 2012, Land Securities formed a 50:50 joint venture with Canada Pension Plan Investment Board ("CPPIB") to own and develop Nova, Victoria. Construction of Nova, Victoria started in June 2013. The 727,000 sq ft first phase, comprising 480,000 sq ft of offices, 80,000 sq ft of retail and 170 luxury modern apartments within three landmark buildings is due for completion in July 2016.
A joint venture with Frogmore Real Estate Partners. Set up in 2007, the Partnership owns prominent consolidated holdings on the north west corner of the junction of Oxford Street and Tottenham Court Road.
20 Eastbourne Terrace is the final phase of a transformative regeneration project next to Paddington underground and Crossrail station. When complete, the 18-storey tower will provide 93,000 sq ft of Grade A office space offering unrivalled views London.
Where the property is not 100% owned, floor areas shown above represent the full scheme whereas all other figures represent our proportionate share. Letting % is measured by ERV and shows letting status at 30 September 2012. Trading property development schemes (e.g. Wellington House, SW1) are excluded from the development pipeline.

Total development cost (£m)
Total development cost refers to the book value of the land at the commencement of the project, the estimated capital expenditure required to develop the scheme from the start of the financial year in which the property is added to our development programme, together with capitalised interest, being the Group's borrowing costs associated with direct expenditure on the property under development. Interest is also capitalised on the purchase cost of land or property where it is acquired specifically for redevelopment. Of the properties in the development pipeline at 30 September 2012, there were no properties on which interest was capitalised on the land cost. The figures for total development costs include £152.0m for the residential elements of Kings Gate, SW1.
Net income/ERV represents headline annual rent on let units plus ERV at 30 September 2012 on unlet units.
