City & City Fringe

London’s City Fringe is broadening its geography, with areas such as Shoreditch, Hoxton, Aldgate and Whitechapel now considered bona fide City Fringe locations. New digital businesses are a driving force but a significant increase in residential development, to support a new and younger demographic and the growing trend towards city living, has also been instrumental.

With much residential development and expansion to the east, especially around City Road and Aldgate, The Elizabeth Line (Crossrail) is also bringing City Fringe contender Whitechapel into the mix. Furthermore, western fringes of the City are also growing as residential locations, with several developments in the Chancery Lane area. Construction activity has never been as high as it is today, with 4,339 units under construction. The outlook is also exciting with almost 5,000 units likely to be built over the next 5-10 years.
