Tall Buildings

High density in the post-pandemic city 

Tall Buildings are increasingly becoming part of London, a city traditionally associated with a low-rise, low-density character. The NLA London Tall Buildings Survey has provided the only comprehensive review of tall buildings in the pipeline in London since 2014. This report and associated NLA programme has been driving the debate on how tall buildings contribute to the city, analysing key trends in tall developments and providing insights into the policy, construction and design of this typology of buildings. 
There is no doubt that the disruption brought by the COVID-19 pandemic has had significant impact on the tall buildings pipeline. Changes in planning policies, the adoption of the London Plan and the introduction of National Design Codes will affect where and how tall buildings are planned, designed and built. While the need to curb carbon emissions as quickly as possible bring questions as to whether we should build tall at all. 
The 2022 report, which will be published in April 2022, will provide the annual pipeline update, developing insights into planning policies, attitude towards density and the climate agenda in London, and an annual series of events and editorial pieces will invite industry experts and the public to discuss one of the capital’s most debated topics.
