London towers: proposed, approved or under construction

  • Comment

This table sets out the 236 tall buildings proposed for London

The information contained in this table was carried out by GL Hearn for New London Architecture’s Building Centre exhibition, London’s Growing Up! It details the 236 tall buildings proposed for London, listed alphabetically, borough by borough.

The list also names the architect for each project, but where there are a number of towers designed by one architect, Allies and Morrison for example in Barnet, it is because they form part of a masterplan, with individual projects yet be assigned to alternative architects.

Twenty-two of the 32 London boroughs (33 if you include The City of London) are planning or already building towers – those with than 20 storeys – but there are some hot spots: Brent Cross, Vauxhall in Lambeth, Waterloo in Southwark, Croydon, Stratford in Newham, and Canary Wharf in Tower Hamlets.

Regardless of the location, the overwhelming majority – 81 per cent – are residential.
