Which areas of London are seeing major changes due to tall buildings? What is the impact on local neighbourhoods and how do the planning system cope with the challenges that tall buildings bring? How do we ensure these are of the highest quality of design and do not harm London’s rich historic heritage?

New London Architecture and the research team will discuss the findings of the latest NLA London Tall Buildings Survey 2019, providing the annual snapshot of new tall developments in London. 

With the majority of tall buildings in the pipeline being residential, what role do tall buildings play in accommodating an increasing population? What do they deliver in terms of affordable housing? Are they the best way to deliver density? Are they more expensive to build and maintain?

In this NLA conference we bring together built environment experts to discuss the future of London’s skyline.

This event is part of NLA’s Tall Buildings Programme, which gives an annual update on the current tall buildings pipeline, analysing the changes over the past year, the effect of Brexit, the planning tools currently in use and ultimately discussing the role of tall buildings in London’s growth.
