About Us

We are TfL's property company and we have big plans for the capital

With over 5,500 acres of land across the capital, TfL is one of London's largest landowners. As Places for London, TfL's property company, it is our mission to untap the potential of that land to improve existing properties and build new ones to meet the growing needs of our city. 

We're here to help create a greener, kinder more connected London.

Doing things differently

By partnering with other organisations and our customers we can realise a greener, more sustainable city through our places, properties and our people.

We’ve introduced skills and education programmes to energise the construction industry with new talent and inspire the next generation of city-builders and place-makers, all while creating significant social and economic benefits for local communities and the capital as a whole.

We’re building more than 20,000 new homes in the next ten years. And by homes we mean sustainable, desirable, beautiful homes, many of them affordable – where Londoners can grow their roots.

Leadership & Governance

Our name is a promise – of green places. Beautiful places. Accessible places. Vibrant places. Connected and thriving places. Places for every part of London, and every kind of Londoner.

For anyone who has ever loved this city, and everyone who calls it home.

Places for all of us

London isn't bricks and mortar. It's people. Family. Communities. 8.8 million people, each with their own story. Keeping London thriving means minding its gaps and supporting its growth. Not just the housing gap, but the skills gap, the clean air gap, the green spaces long neglected, the gaps on our high streets, the spaces that need our focus so every Londoner, every neighbourhood and every community can thrive.

Places for a greater London

In-Station and High Street

Over 1000 spaces in and around TfL Stations that provide convenience to Londoners moving around the Capital; and we’re getting innovative.
