The City Centre houses a unique interactive decision making tool, which is often used as the focal point of presentations. The 1:500 scale model of the City offers an essential guide to property in the Square Mile and provides an overview of the entire area. Each property is shown in the context of neighbouring occupants, nearby facilities and public transport. The Touch London model It is a fascinating depiction of a 21st century city built on 2,000 years of history.
The model is linked to TouchLondon – an interactive database that selects highlighted properties on the model by size, developer or location. It includes graphic information about available and proposed office space as well as information on planning consents and City of London activities.
The database and model illumination features are controlled via a touch-screen and are linked to a back projection unit for presentations to larger groups. The model is constantly updated to reflect the changing property scene in the Square Mile.
The model was made by Pipers.
