Much of the story of London's development can be traced through the historic ownership of large pieces of land which, through the on-going ownership of freehold assets and their lease terms, have created a resilient cycle of change and renewal. Today this long-term attitude to investment, development and management has influenced the development of new large-scale and mixed-use areas of the capital, such as King's Cross, Canary Wharf and the Olympic Park.
This NLA exhibition examined the evolution of London's Great Estates and their impact on the development of new large-scale areas of the capital under a single ownership.
The exhibition was sponsored by Cluttons, Futurecity and Savills, and supported by The Bedford Estates, British Land, Cadogan, Canary Wharf, Capital and Counties, Church Commissioners for England, City of London, The Crown Estate, Eyre Estate, Grosvenor, Howard de Walden Estate, King's Cross Central London Partnership, LLDC, The Mercers', Peabody, The Portman Estate, Qatari Diar Delancey, Shaftesbury, Soho Estates & South Kensington Estates.
