For sale: vacant airspace
Where will we build more homes when our cities run out of land? We'll use the 'vacant airspace' on top of existing buildings, says London-based developer Apex Airspace Development.
Backed by the government and included in the National Planning Policy Framework, the plan is to develop a modular 'airspace' unit, 95% of which can be constructed off-site and installed in a single day. The company has already identified around 60,000 potential 'building sites', including several Tesco superstores.
