The rise of the high-rise
June 14, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 9:45 am
How can London cope with higher densities in a constrained space?
How is the London skyline changing and what is planned for the future?
London faces the need to deliver approximately 50,000 new homes per annum for the next 20 years. With a constrained city that needs to respect the desire to protect open space and a greenbelt that prohibits its outward growth, London development will inevitably need to provide homes at greater densities than has historically been the accepted norm.
Sustainable development and appropriate density ranges are influenced by setting in terms of location, existing building form and massing, and public transport accessibility.
This Movement Matters session will provide a forum for an informed discussion around the subject of the density of development in London and how existing and planned transport corridors offer opportunities for delivering greater housing numbers in the outer parts of London.
Our panellists will set the scene in terms of a policy position from Transport for London, an architect’s view on how good design can deliver quality development at increasing densities, and an indication of how developers are reacting to evolving policy and their customers’ view on desirable development.
