NLA’s Great Estates Exhibition
17 October 2013 – 19 December 2013
NLA Main Gallery
Sponsored by Cluttons, Futurecity and Savills
London’s ‘Great Estates’ and their influence on the development of new large-scale areas of the capital is the subject of a major NLA exhibition ‘Great Estates: How London’s landowners shape the city’.
Much of the story of London’s development can be traced through the historic ownership of large pieces of land which, through the ongoing ownership of freehold assets and their lease terms, have created a resilient cycle of change and renewal. Today this long-term attitude to investment, development and management has influenced the development of new large-scale and mixed-use
areas of the capital, such as King’s Cross, Canary Wharf and the Olympic Park.
On show at NLA – London’s Centre for the Built Environment in WC1, the exhibition is free to enter, and runs until 19 December.
