Research description

The UK’s biggest cities have recently experienced a surge in high-rise residential development. London and Manchester have seen the most development activity, with proposals, planning applications and construction starts increasing over the last five years. The UK’s experience follows well-established trends in property hotspots around the world. In this report, we argue that the impacts of high rise residential development in UK cities is yet to be fully interrogated and understood. We thus present an international evidence review on high-rise residential development – our contention being there is much to learn from research conducted in other cities around the world.
