London to get its own domain name in 2014

For example www.worldcapital.london

Businesses, individuals and organisations in the capital will be able to apply first for web addresses with '.london' suffix

London is to become one of the first cities in the world with its own domain name, when ".london" launches in 2014.

The city has been awarded the right to its own top level domain (TLD) name by ICANN, the US-based organisation which oversees the internet.

London-based businesses, individuals and organisations will be able to apply first for web addresses on the new domain from spring 2014. Some of the "tens of thousands" of businesses that have already expressed an interest include Selfridges and Carnaby Street.

"Adopting the .london suffix will enable organisations to more closely associate themselves with our great city’s powerful global brand," says mayor Boris Johnson. "This is also an excellent opportunity to expand London’s digital presence, which in turn is set to generate funds to invest back into the city."

It is the name of a neighbourhood in Lower Manhattan, New York City. Jay Z even used it in his song.

Yeah, yeah, I'ma up at Brooklyn, now I'm down in Tribeca
Right next to De Niro, but I'll be hood forever
I'm the new Sinatra, and since I made it here
I can make it anywhere, yeah, they love me everywhere

We all know where Tribeca is, that's exactly the point why it's a bloody stupid name for a development in London.

Do you know how Westfield Croydon will measure up to Westfields Stratford and Shepherds Bush (before and after SB's proposed extension)?

Yes, it does, but those are older. For a London project to call itself 'Tribeca' - in the early 21st century - smacks of looking over your shoulder (forget the fact that much of the architecture in Tribeca is from the 19th century). It's naff.

Tribeca is also a contraction of Triangle Below Canal (Street). That only makes sense in the specific context.

But, yes, as Hugh mentioned, it's incredibly naff to import a name from another city just for marketing purposes.

This occurs across the world. Article earlier this year in Canada's The Globe and Mail: Using London to sell a Toronto condo - it’s a stretch
