‘Record-Breaking Year for Tall Buildings in London’
A recent article from Arch Daily writes that 2019 is set to be a ‘record-breaking year for tall buildings in London’. To summarise the article, New London Architecture has published the results of their annual Tall Building Survey, declaring 2019 as “The Year of the Tall Building” with a record number of 76 tall buildings set to be completed in London in 2019.
There are currently 541 tall buildings in the pipeline, which will offer more than 110,000 new homes for the city.
Creekside Wharf, Greenwich
Fannon Group has been working on a new residential development in South East London, Creekside Wharf, being undertaken by Essential Living. When completed, Creekside Wharf will have facilitated the creation of a two-tower mixed-use development, with 249 units for rent, and a new vibrant hub of public space along the river.
