Skyscraper vs Groundscraper

A discussion paper on 21st century real estate development in a post-pandemic world.

Building Up: Skyscraper vs Groundscraper is our latest market intelligence report with industry experts discussing the latest trends, threats and future opportunities facing every aspect of tall buildings in our society, their creation and occupation.

The pandemic has meant that not only our industry, but also society as a whole, is looking at the fundamentals of how we live, work and play. The desire for change and uncertainty as to what the future holds has accelerated, and as we begin a new chapter in the history of the built environment, this free report considers the key themes in the role buildings play and how their development can contribute to our economy, sustainability and wellbeing.

The report will be published in three stages. In conjunction with the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat we have gathered comment from an exceptional line-up of industry figures who represent a powerful cross-section of those involved in the built environment.

First part highlights include:

  • Industry facts and stats
