I walk past the building everyday on the way to work and it looks pretty much complete on the outside. Did Savills say what the hold-up was?

apparently the building was supposed to be handed over (whatever that means) this week, and people were to move in by the middle of january.. however, the handover did not happen (no real explanation, just that it has been delayed).. they expect handover to take place in a couple of weeks, therefore delaying moving in date by the same amount, however the agent wasn't too confident that this would happen either, so she had told me end of feb - "to be on the safe side"!!

fernando is now on hols so i spoke to a lady called sarah instead..

Is there any information on what's going to be on the ground floor ? I know that the Grange Rd surgery is moving into there but it looks like there are some shop fronts - are there going to be shops / restaurants does anyone know ?

Handover is generally Practical Completion (PC) when the architect signs off the building as being complete, other than minor issues.

As we all know, builders are often late, and this is one reason why, when signing a building contract, you should put in penalty clauses for late delivery to encourage them to stick to their promises. Nevertheless, changes made to the design or spec during construction ususally allow builders to get out time penalty clauses in many cases.

The minor issues outstanding, plus all the minor defects which are discovered when a building is first occupied are called snagging and will be sorted out post-PC.

I think in addition to the Grange Road surgery there is going to be a dentist and a pharmacy on the ground floor. I'm not sure if perhaps there will be anything else?

From the developers web site, it looks like the ground floor will be a doctor/dentist/pharmacy:

Have you had a completion date yet?

We've been told that they wont be letting people know until early feb, and block C will be the first to complete. They will move in one floor per day and will give 10 days notice.

No, nothing received yet

hello, just spoke to savills today who told me that "core c" have now been called with their completion dates.. unfortunately i'm in core d which they reckon is about a week or so behind.. so maybe should be able to move in by end of feb?!?!?
