The first model of the Thames Gateway, and the largest architectural model in the UK, was launched this week on the first day of the Thames Gateway Forum. The 25-metre long model, the length of three London buses end to end, is to act as a guide for investment opportunities and to show residents what developments are happening in the area.

The model includes all the existing buildings, transport networks, public spaces, waterways and landscaping in the Thames Gateway – and as the regions development progresses more will be added to the model.

The Thames Gateway Forum is backed by Property Week parent CMP Information.
