GLA Industrial Intensification Pilots\

Keeping London productive

The GLA brought forward a small number of sites as pilot studies in order to test and support emergent London Plan policy on the intensification of industrial land.

The challenge

Optimising land for development is central to the Mayor’s good growth agenda. Canning Town, Blackwall, Empsom Street, Ailsa Street and Belvedere demonstrate significant opportunities to realise greater industrial capacity, as well as some non-industrial use.

The big idea

Our pilot studies explored the spectrum of multi-storey, multi-level, infill, upgrade and mixed-use solutions on a variety of plot, location and occupier types. Combined with commercial valuations, these studies identify and quantify specific considerations for the intensification of industrial land.

The small detail

Site selection within industrial estates was undertaken through GIS-enabled analysis and scripting of quantifiable plot attributes.
