Great Estates

How London's landowners shape the city

Free Download Go!

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 publication was supported by a major NLA exhibition which 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.
