No more 9 to 5: Why a night-time economy is vital for survival

London mayor Sadiq Khan is committed to developing a night time economy in the capital. The introduction of the Night Tube has already generated almost £200m of benefits to the economy and his appointment of a Night Tzar in Amy Lame to help foster greater relationships between planners, politicians, the public and property to turn London into the greatest 24 hour city on earth is starting to pay dividends.

In this EG Property Podcast, in partnership with BNP Paribas Real Estate, EG deputy editor Samantha McClary sits down with Amy Lame; Michael Delfs, project director of British Land; Steven Charlton, managing director of Perkins & Will and BNPPRE’s head of placemaking Denizer Ibrahim, to talk about the misconceptions of a night-time economy, the challenges to creating a sustainable night-time economy, the opportunities turning the capital into a 24-hour city could bring and the role that the built environment has to play in that.
