The demand for housing in London is high, and the city is running out of land. They're now looking to the water, planning a floating neighborhood in East London. It will include 50 floating homes around a neighborhood square made of water, along with restaurants, offices, and shops. Back on land, the city plans a much larger development with tens of thousands of new homes that will connect via a floating walkway.
