Alphabet Inc’s (NASDAQ:GOOGL) New ‘Landscraper’ Could Be The Next Longest Building In London When Completed

Published

on

Alphabet Inc’s (NASDAQ:GOOGL) new headquarters in the United Kingdom could be the next super-tall skyscraper than the Shard – the tallest skyscraper when it’s completed. According to Business Insider, the Shard measures about 1,016 feet tall but Google’s building, which is similar in size will be 1,082 feet long. The building’s architects have named it the ‘landscraper’ since it stretches horizontally rather than vertically.

Once the building is complete, it’ll be one of its first kinds in the entire world. However, according to futurist Amy Webb, the landscrapers are supposed to become more popular in the next two decades especially in the US. They will create totally new city footprints, making life easier and practical than what is currently found in the US and other parts of the world. Webb highlighted four major trends of landscrapers in the near future:

  • An increasing migration from the America’s densely populated cities such as the New York City, San Francisco to underdeveloped cities like Austin Arizona, Phoenix, and Texas. Landscrapers will thrive more in less populated cities since there’s more room for expansion.
  • With frequent and aggressive climate-driven events such as the hurricanes, investors are finding it riskier to build high-rises, which can be swayed away by strong winds. The current cities in the US are mostly located in areas that are likely to suffer from climate-related challenges.
  • The latest innovations in elevator technology have also made it easier for navigators to develop landscrapers. Furthermore, investors and tech companies are heavily investing in autonomous drone technology to aide in transporting products.
  • People will be allowed to locate new economic centers outward rather than upward.

The construction of the new Google headquarters is set to commence next year at the King’s Cross Central development. The landscraper which is expected to be eleven storey tall will cover an area of about 1 million square feet, hosting more than 7,000 workers when complete. With rapid innovations in technology, more developments are expected in the near future.
