25 – 26 April 2018
Combining elements of London’s singular history and future, this insight programme will visit four landmark sites (one to be confirmed) over two days. Including three internationally funded mixed use developments, the agenda attests to London’s continued resilience, appeal and economic vibrancy.
Extending the focus of RICS World Built Environment Forum Summit London on the opportunities for the built environment presented by globalisation, rapid urbanisation and digitalisation, attendees will enjoy privileged access to these fascinating case studies. Covering central themes of land reclamation, urban regeneration and restoration, the tour will offer a first-hand insight into how London remains competitive, agile and liveable. In the face of challenges posed by population growth, climate change and shifting geopolitical priorities, we will consider how a city with such a storied past can adapt and thrive in the 21st century and beyond.
With £320m of funding secured, against a total requirement of £1.7bn, work has commenced on the establishment of a third financial centre for London. Join ABP London's Senior Project Manager, Carl Stoakes, to learn how the developers aim to create a European gateway for Asian businesses, with the support of the UK Government and Mayor of London.
Canary Wharf Group has already achieved one of the greatest feats of civic engineering, turning a once unused area of London’s docklands into 400,000m2 of highly sought-after office and retail space. Delegates will be given a tour of the marketing suite, showing the development of the estate over the last 30 years and enjoy the views from level 30 in the prestigious One Canada Square. This will be followed by a tour of the new 90,000m2, mixed-use development at Wood Wharf – among the city’s largest privately-owned development sites and one of UK’s most spectacular reclamation and regeneration projects.
With over 4,000 new homes and 120,000m2 of commercial space – including Apple’s new UK HQ – this £9bn project is one of the largest ever undertaken in London. Kostas Papacharalampos, Investment Manager at Battersea Power Station Development Corporation, will detail the site's journey from decommissioned Art Deco icon to centrepiece of an ambitious central London regeneration project.
The RICS World Built Environment Forum Summit reconvenes in London in 2018. These two days of cutting edge debates will focus on the commercial strategies needed to harness the enormous potential of the 21st century’s people and places.
