| The City of London is situated in the heart of London, encompassing the Square Mile - the world's leading international financial and business centre. Due to severe pressure on space there
is a history of new developments being built with little
or no on-site parking provision.
Recent years have seen a new development trend where buildings
previously used for office or commercial purposes are
converted for residential use. This reverses previous
trends and could increase congestion pressures.
171-176 Aldersgate Street, near to the Barbican Centre,
the exisiting buildings at this site were demolished and
the site redeveloped with 81 residential units and A3
ground floor use.
Nearby at 43 Bartholomew Close this building was converted
from B1 office use to provide 38 residential flats.
Opposite Liverpool Street Station and in the shadow of
'the Gerkin' the site at 192-200 Bishopsgate has been
redeveloped to provide 46 residential units.
