distinctive pastel pink eco-friendly Disney-style residence on the market ‘off plan’

A totally one-of-a-kind, eco-friendly Disney-style home in the north London is for sale but has not yet been built.

The cloud house – actually a pair of adjoining pastel pink and blue-green houses inspired by Miami Art Deco – was designed by architect Peter Morris. It Building permit received from Camden Council in July 2020 after provoking polarized reactions among neighbors in Gospel Oak.

The two new homes will replace the “polluting,” heat-leaking Victorian home that Mr. Morris currently resides in with his wife, TV producer Emma Kennedy, and their teenage daughter, and on an adjacent property.

The couple originally planned to live in one and sell the neighboring house after the project was complete. The difficulty of raising funds to build both of them means they will sell a house before construction begins.

The somewhat complicated arrangement means that the buyer would buy Mr Morris’ existing home while keeping the property next door. They would then tear down the Victorian property and build the two cloud houses. The architect estimates that the process from sale to completion would take about 18 months.

The house is on the market for £ 1.2 million with an expected additional cost of £ 800,000 on the construction project. The original plan was for the finished house to be worth £ 2.25 million.

“We have a full interior design right down to the stove brand, but now the buyer has the option to completely change the interior design if they wish,” said Morris.

“It’s currently designed as an upside down four bedroom, four bathroom house, but someone could change the number of rooms and the layout. There’s a rooftop pool that could probably be made bigger and you might not want the interior design to be as expansive as we planned. “

The property caught attention with its distinctive design with several extravagantly curved windows inspired by the nearby St. Martin Church. The listed church, built in 1865, was described by the architectural historian Nikolaus Pevsner (1902-83) as “the craziest of” LondonVictorian Churches, ”largely because of its incomplete-looking towers and William Morris stained-glass windows.

The story goes on

In harmony with Current architectural trends for individuality, bold color palettes and fun, the current interior design features contrasting colors and patterns, terrazzo countertops with cow print and neon yellow accessories in the kitchen, pale turquoise stairs and dotted tiles on the roof terrace and throughout the house.

The environmentally friendly features include gray water recycling, underfloor heating with an air heat pump and almost passive house airtightness and insulation.

“If Antoni Gaudi were to develop houses today, in our opinion this would have been his characteristic style,” der Entry on the website of the Unique Property Company reads.

“We got a lot of interest from design enthusiasts who want to live in something completely different from an ordinary pitched roof house,” said Morris.

Billy Vunipola returns in fashion as sharp Saracens beat ill-disciplined Sale | Premiership

Billy Vunipola marked his return from a knee injury by helping Saracens to miserable Alex Sanderson’s return to north London as they rose to second place in the league.

The No. 8, dropped out of the Harlequins’ limp on October 31, showed a man-of-the-match performance that blended power with a dexterous touch. He was involved in the pioneering attempt when sale was down to 14 men and was 13 points behind thanks to some moron from Byron McGuigan four minutes earlier that had resulted in his being sent off for the second time in his career.

McGuigan was at the boiling point when he was stopped by Sean Maitland and refused an attempt, which the winger informed him of. He was even angrier when the exercise bike Nick Tompkins AJ MacGinty refused to try shortly afterwards and a fight broke out in the goal area. McGuigan grabbed Tompkins from behind and threw him to the ground before returning and eventually being sent off.

That paved the way for Vunipola’s big moment. He stepped on Sale defense near their 22 after showing off a classic dummy, then fired a 15-yard pass from his left hand at Maitland – who hit on the wing recently vacated by McGuigan.

Sanderson, the rugby sales director, said, “Byron trains at UFC in his spare time, so maybe he just had a flashback of some sort of ultimate fighting session that he did. I haven’t spoken to him. He’s a great guy, one of the hardest workers. The emotions, the occasion, the fact that we didn’t meet – I felt that too – probably defeated him. “

Vunipola had fallen out of favor with England and Eddie Jones before his injury, but a few more appearances like this could force a rethink.

“He’s been really good again and it’s a series of games he’s been putting together for the club all season,” said Mark McCall. “He’s been inspiring all along. Eddie has just asked him to continue supporting his accomplishments, and he definitely has. “

With McGuigan off the field, Sale actually grew into the game. They had lost their captain Jono Ross when he failed a head injury assessment in the first half but Tom Curry, who had returned from England, had to come off the bench for him.

Manu Tuilagi, who did not play at all, was a major loss while Saracens sidelined Owen Farrell and Jamie George after suffering injuries at England.

Sanderson spent 17 years as a player and coach with Saracens before returning to Sale in January to begin his playing career. He was staying at his former Saracen colleague Kevin Sorrell’s house on Friday night, and the sales force planned to go to a Wandsworth pub on Sunday night before a trip to Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park.

But they went into the snow in frustration after Ben Curry and Raffi Quirke tried to re-enact his attempt at the support line in the second half for England against South Africa last weekend, gave them a taste of what could have been.

Between those two goals, Saracens conjured up a wonderful team performance, which Max Malins ended for his eighth attempt in three league games after a visionary spin and a pass from Alex Goode. While Sale has a goodbye week to look forward to, Saracens know they have more to offer in Exeter next weekend.

“I thought we were very good physically in the first half and in every game we played we were patchy,” said McCall. “It’s not the kind of team we want to be.”

Palm Seaside is operating out of mansions on the market

Villas along the coast of Palm Beach, Florida.

Prices in Florida’s ultra-affluent Palm Beach community hit an all-time high in the second quarter as brokers struggled with a record low number of villas for sale.

The average price for a single-family home in Palm Beach reached $ 11.7 million in the second quarter, a 38% year-over-year increase and marks a new high, according to Douglas Elliman and Miller Samuel. Brokers say the influx of wealthy hedge funds, private equity bosses, and other financial executives migrating from New York and other financial capitals has skyrocketed in demand and prices for a market already for its oversized wealth is known.

“This is a complete reorganization of the market,” said Jonathan Miller, CEO of Miller Samuel, the valuation firm. “We’re seeing $ 50 million in transactions almost weekly now. That’s a big change. And it seems sustainable.”

Prices in Palm Beach are now close to Manhattan levels, with the price per square foot in Palm Beach topping $ 1,500 in the second quarter, according to Miller near Manhattan’s $ 1,545.

Even at record high prices, buyers pay. The number of single-family home sales rose 90% year over year in the second quarter – as did purchases in Palm Beach and Florida due to Covid migration.

The result is what realtors call a villa shortage as demand exceeds supply. There is now a record low of homes for sale in Palm Beach, according to Miller Samuel. At the end of the second quarter, there were only 25 houses for sale – and the actual number could be lower due to houses already contracted or about to be contracted.

Realtors say they are now going door to door in hopes of finding buyers ready to sell.

Christopher Leavitt, a top Palm Beach realtor with Douglas Elliman, said he had to get creative in persuading property owners to sell, helping those owners find a smaller home to buy, and then the smaller homeowner in move to another house.

“It’s about repositioning people,” he said. “It’s no longer just about MLS deals and selling a home.”

The financial business – and its relocation from New York – is the main driver of the Palm Beach boom, Leavitt said. While many hedge fund billionaires and private equity chiefs moved to Palm Beach during the pandemic, Development of large office towers and amenities in nearby West Palm Beach means many of the establishments will stay nearby and move.

“That’s the tip of the iceberg,” he said.

Scott Shleifer, a partner in Tiger Global Management, bought a $ 122.7 million mansion in Palm Beach in February, marking the highest price ever paid for a property in Palm Beach. Hedge fund billionaire David Tepper buys Pepper a Palm Beach spec villa in the same month for $ 68 million. Hedge funder Igor Tulchinsky has bought a $ 39.5 million property in North Palm Beach.

A Private island on Palm Beach just sold to a specification developer for $ 85 million. The developer, Todd Michael Glaser, said he and his development partners plan to renovate the property and quickly bring it back for a higher price, calling it a “once in a lifetime opportunity.”

J&J commits to finish sale of opioids nationwide in $230 million New York settlement

New York State Attorney General Letitia James speaks during a press conference to announce criminal justice reform on May 21, 2021 in New York City, United States.

Johnson & Johnson has reached a $ 230 million settlement with New York State that prevents the company from promoting opioids and has confirmed that sales of such products have ceased in the United States.

New York Attorney General Letitia James’s office said in a statement Saturday the agreement prohibits J&J from promoting opioids by any means and prohibits lobbying for such products at the federal, state or local levels.

Johnson & Johnson has not marketed any opioids in the US since 2015 and completely ceased business in 2020.

As part of the settlement, the company will settle opioid-related claims and spread payments over nine years. It could also pay $ 30 million more in the first year if the state executive board signs a new law creating an opioid settlement fund, according to the press release from James’ office.

The settlement follows years of lawsuits filed by states, cities and counties against large pharmaceutical companies over the opioid crisis that killed nearly 500,000 people in the US over the past few decades.

Governments have argued that companies have prescribed the medication too often, causing people to become addicted and abuse other illegal forms of opioids, while companies have stated that they have distributed the required amount of the product to people with medical problems help.

“The opioid epidemic has wreaked havoc in countless communities in New York state and the rest of the nation, and millions are still addicted to dangerous and deadly opioids,” James said in a statement.

“Johnson & Johnson helped start that fire, but today they are pledging to leave the opioid business – not just in New York but across the country,” she said. “J&J no longer makes or sells opioids in the United States.”

The New York opioid lawsuit against the rest of the defendants will begin this week, according to the announcement. Other defendants in the New York lawsuit include Purdue Pharma; Mallinckrodt LLC; Endo health solutions; Teva Pharmaceuticals USA; and Allergan Finance LLC.

In a statement on Saturday, Johnson & Johnson said the settlement was “not an admission of liability or misconduct on the part of the company” and “with the terms of the company previously announced A $ 5 billion fundamental settlement agreement for the settlement of opioid lawsuits and claims by states, cities, counties, and tribal governments.

The company also said it will continue to defend itself against lawsuits that the definitive deal won’t resolve.

James said the state will focus on funding opioid prevention, treatment and education efforts to “prevent any future devastation”.

Sanderson Farms consider a sale as chicken prices rise due to increased demand, so a Report from the Wall Street Journal.

Sanderson Farms’ shares closed at $ 166.58 on Monday, up 6.96% from talks of a possible deal. In expanded trading, the stock rose more than 9% and increased its market cap to more than $ 3.72 billion. Every buyer would have to pay a premium on top of this price.

Citing people familiar with the matter, the newspaper said Sanderson hired Centerview Partners for advice after piquing the interest of potential buyers, including agricultural investment firm Continental Grain. The Journal said the talks between the parties may not result in a sale.

Has a combination of strong demand and labor shortage have driven up poultry prices, and further increases could still be imminent. Chicken wing prices, for example, averaged $ 2.72 a pound last week U.S. Department of Agriculture, that’s almost 20 cents more than in the same week last year.

Sanderson is the third largest food processor in the US in an area covered by Tyson Foods.

According to the report, a deal with Continental would create a company that produces about 15% of the country’s chicken. The newly founded company would only barely cover that Pilgrim pride, which has a market share of 16%, the report said.

Continental owns Wayne Farms, a small chicken processor, and once hoped to go public and act as a consolidator in the industry.

When reached by CNBC, Sanderson declined to comment.
