In recent years, there has been an increase in the number of high-rise buildings proposed and approved for construction in the UK, particularly in London, but also in the Birmingham and Greater Manchester. In terms of the geographical location of high-rise schemes, the majority of high-rise buildings are in London. The rest are clustered in key cities such as Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester and Salford. Other cities with a small number of schemes include Cardiff, Portsmouth, Plymouth, Glasgow and Sheffield.
Unlike other international cities, London is considered 'low-rise' for a global city and financial capital; with a much slower rate of high-rise development. However, with a shortage of available land and a rapidly increasing population (London is set to become the first European city to reach 10m residents by 2030), planners and developers are increasingly turning to high-rise schemes to address the housing crisis and attract commercial investment to the Capital.
The mix of completed high-rise buildings across the UK is dominated by residential use followed by commercial office and mixed-use. The continued dominance of residential as the primary function is unsurprising given market conditions and the ongoing demand for new housing across London and many regional cities.
Outside of planning restrictions, other factors affecting the development of high-rise buildings include cost, space efficiency, wind & seismic considerations, structural safety, risk challenges both on site and in completed buildings, speed of elevators, new building materials to potentially replace steel and concrete and damping systems. In addition, significant technical and logistical factors include pumping and placing concrete at extreme heights, and craning and lifting items to extreme heights.
