76 tall buildings to join London's skyline in 2019

The London skyline continues to head upwards, with a record 76 tall buildings due to be completed this year, a three-fold increase from 2018.

According to the latest research from the industry forum New London Architecture (NLA), the number of tall towers – more than 20 storeys high – planned or under construction has also hit a new record of 541, up from 510 buildings in 2017. The annual survey shows 366 of them are in inner London and 175 in outer London; the latter is up by 3%.
