With over 500 tall buildings in London’s pipeline, how do we know they are responding to the right needs of a growing city?

What contributions do they bring to meet housing needs in a city already struggling due to a constant lack of available sites? Yet, are they providing the right typologies of homes where people want – and can afford – to live in?

We bring together experts and leading commentators to discuss how and if building upwards is a benefit for London. Download the report here

NLA London Tall Buildings Survey 2017

Publication

Each year the NLA London Tall Buildings Survey has generated a healthy debate about the benefits, as well as the negative impacts, of tall buildings. It has given a voice to those that propose them as well as those that are more critical. At NLA we remain of the view that in a growing city, well designed tall buildings in the right place are appropriate, a view reiterated by the Mayor of London at his Question Time on March 23.
