I wouldn’t get to confident as no matter what all construction is cyclical and no one has any idea what will happen nationally or globally to effect things.

Currently in London there is massive demand for offices and residential. As current supply for offices is restricted more developers will start to develop, this will eventually lead to over- supply in the next few years and a slowdown in office development. Whether this slowdown is long depends entirely on how the wider economy is going. Any downturn will eventually become an upswing in due cause. At the moment both Offices and Resi are on an upward swing.

Residential is a more difficult one to call. A lot of resi in inner London is incredibly expensive, whether they will continue to be demand for high end resi is debateable but there is a couple of sold years at least of big growth. However there is a chronic housing shortage in London so there will still be major resi schemes U/C .Whether there is a bigger push into Private Rented Schemes or local government is freed to build depends on how serious the national government deems the housing shortage to be.

London is growing at 100,000 people are year and is forecast to do that every year at least up to 2030. Housing will be needed whether the economy is booming or in recession.

This is probably the first bit written by you that I actually agree with.

And I'd also like to add that this is why it's important we change for the better while we can afford it!

It's for all the projects we know of at present , but these are rough estimates by the developer.

Is that a random location for towers? It seems to be in the middle of nowhere.

North Acton has many highrises , but it is situated close to an future OOC station where HS2 and Crossrail will meet. It's planned as a future district for highrises up to a maximum of 50 floors.

to resolve this issue , I have created a spreadsheet to help me get some sense of scale of the number of highrises set for London.

Will you share it with us? It's hard to get my head around and I also lose track, try and keep up with the London stuff as much as I can but it's just too much!

It's currently a excel document , so I think I would need to make it again in Google Docs for it to be freely available.

The London summary of projects and directory on the main London forum is a good start. But it can become dated quickly with new schemes being proposed and changes to existing ones.

Yeah it's pretty crazy trying to keep track. Recently I've been trying to update the relevant wikipedia page.

Based on a threshold of 100m, this currently has 53 completed, 21 under construction, 49 approved and 30 proposed.

If you add all them up you get over 150 buildings over 100m. But I think most or all of the 30 "proposed" are now approved, and there are many more proposals that aren't listed at all.

No doubt everything ends, however the level of investment that London receives (manifesting itself in construction etc) hasn't waned relative to its competitors over the past +5 years.

I'll post part of a recent report on the matter when I find the relevant files.

The next few years will likely see three Premier League move into new homes (although I don't like any of 'em )
