Some 583 schemes above 20 storeys are planned for the capital, more than double the 270 built over the past decade, according to New London Architecture’s 10th annual tall buildings report.  The report finds demand for office space is driving growth in towers despite slowdown in tall residential schemes. Outside of the City, the scale of towers is decreasing with schemes between 12 and 18 storeys rather than the super tall buildings completed in the last 10 to 15 years such as at Nine Elms or the Elephant and Castle. 37% of Londoners now say they could see themselves living in a high-rise home.
