Is building residential high rise apartments a good idea?

MARK TINKER | AXA FRAMLINGTON
Having people live in large high-rise buildings, which are also used as offices and shops, integrates the building into the city. But London doesn’t want to lose the street level feel that is unique to the city.

NICK SCOTT | SCOTT CITY RESIDENTIAL
There is big money in high-rise space being used as residential housing, with a good example of this being the Barbican. It was built in the 1960s but people still love living there.

High-rise buildings offer a different style of residence that allow more people to live in cities. In Manhattan, residences in tall buildings are seen as a cool, modern way to live, but with a good view!
