London skyscraper figures at record high

The number of skyscrapers being completed in London is expected to reach a record high this year. An annual survey by New London Architecture and GL Hearn forecasts that construction on 76 tall buildings will be finished during the course of 2019, marking a three-fold increase on the previous year. The NLA data also reveals that 90% of all tall buildings proposed are for substantially residential use, with towers under construction expected to deliver 110,000 new homes for London. The tallest residential development, the 220m Newfoundland Quay, with 58 floors, will open later this year in Canary Wharf. Canary Wharf and the Docklands continue to be development hotspots, with 85 tall buildings planned in Tower Hamlets and 69 planned across Greenwich.
