Tall buildings are increasingly becoming part of London, a city traditionally associated with a low-rise, low-density character. In the past decade, major new clusters of tall buildings have emerged in areas such as Nine Elms, Elephant and Castel, the Isle of Dogs and the City of London. And still more are to come, with a pipeline of over 500 tall buildings either in planning, approved or under construction in the capital.
What will be the future of high-rise, high-density developments in London as the capital recovers from the pandemic? What will be the medium and long term consequences on the city shape and form? How the COVID crisis will impact tall developments in London?
The pioneering role of NLA research on tall buildings delivers up-to-date figures and analysis and a year-round programme inviting industry experts and the public to discuss one of the capital’s most debated topic.
