London’s getting high. There are more than 400 new buildings of 20-plus storeys planned for the city right now, according to the annual New London Architecture London Tall Buildings Survey. This map shows where.
Of the 455 skyscrapers in the process of planning, application or construction, nearly half are to the east of the City, clustered in the Isle of Dogs, Greenwich, Aldgate and Stratford. Elsewhere, SE1 and SW8 are getting 73 new towers between them. But the most surprising developments are in the outer boroughs: Willesden, Cricklewood and Croydon all have lofty ambitions. Even in the suburbs, it seems, the only way is up.
