In brief: Casino bets are on, Bristol regen news, Trellick Tower and Google.
Casino bidders list revealed by DCMS. The first evaluation of the bids is expected to last at least six to eight weeks, with further examination of selected proposals taking place in the summer.

Bristol have chosen Deeley Freed Estates as their development partner for the St Mary le Port business quarter and the £150m scheme could be underway within 18 months. It will be "a mixed scheme with retail uses facing on to Wine Street; cafes, restaurants and new housing overlooking the city's historic Floating Harbour and a landmark office building close to Bristol Bridge." Sounds original, then.

The 20th Century Society and DOCOMOMO-UK have joined up to urge John Prescott to call in John McAslan’s controversial plans to revamp the iconic Trellick Tower, mainly because they don't want him to replace the windows. This comes as Kensington and Chelsea Council said it was ‘minded to grant’ planning permission for the refurbishment, but it can't grant full planning permission because it is the owner of the building. This decision has been passed to the government office for London.

And last but by no means least: Google have started a property sales listing service in the States - an example search can be seen here. This is actually potentially huge for the property sector and definitely one to track.
