WPA members are invited to the launch of a new report, on the role of ‘knowledge clusters’ for London’s property industry, with a keynote speech from Jules Pipe CBE – Deputy Mayor of London for Planning, Regeneration & Skills.
Commissioned by London Property Alliance (CPA and WPA) and sponsored by British Land, Cushman & Wakefield and Derwent London, the report looks at the role of medical research and life science industries in inspiring real estate development across the capital. Its findings are based on in-depth interviews with leading ‘knowledge’ industries, local authority leaders and policymakers, as well as key property industry figures, and included input from the London Property Alliance’s newly formed Camden Working Group.
The report explores the market demand for buildings that support research-led businesses, and how developers are responding. What are the key locations for ‘knowledge’ industries in the capital? Are planning policy or other interventions needed to support the growth of clusters in London?
