We’re delighted to have launched our report entitled Housing London: A Mid-rise Solution. The report looks at the problems of affordability and inclusivity facing London’s housing supply and offers up recommendations to achieve more mid-rise housing in the capital.
HRH The Prince of Wales joined us at our offices in Shoreditch yesterday to launch the report. HRH spoke on the challenges of housing facing the city and recommended that we build more mid-rise developments that support mixed-tenure, sustainable and harmonious communities:
“In order to continue to prosper, any healthy city requires a built environment that provides good quality housing, the integration of nature and green spaces at its heart, walkable, mixed-use neighbourhoods, good public transport and an identity that fosters pride and a sense of belonging. The most successful cities and the most popular neighbourhoods within those cities all share these qualities in abundance.”
HRH The Prince of Wales was joined by a panel of expert speakers: Richard Blakeway Deputy Mayor for Housing, Property and Land, Elliot Lipton Managing Director, First Base, Yolande Barnes Director, Savills World Research, Nicholas Boys Smith Director, Create Streets and Francesca Perry Editor, Thinking City.
