Short film explaining why London City Airport should be closed – the site would be much, much more useful and make more money, if it was used for other purposes
Great short video (2 mins 40 secs) by Jay Foreman, setting out why it would make enormous sense for the London City Airport site to be sold, and the land put to better use. Amazingly the land only effectively produces a small amount per unit area.
London City Airport sits on about 500,000 square metres of land, in a prime London location, making only about £100 million per year. That works out at about £200 per square metre per year.
By contrast, the Excel Centre, nearby sits on about 45,000 square metres of land, and makes about £513 million per year. That works out at bout £11,400 per square metre per year.
So that’s £100. Compared to £11,400 per square metre. Logic?
