Commercial Property is at the heart of solving some of our City’s biggest challenges – housing pressures, our financial challenge and the need to keep London moving, working and growing.
We have the ambitious target of generating over £2billion in non-fares income between 2017/18 and 2021/22 to reinvest in London’s transport network. We will achieve this using our transport assets and land – we are one of London’s largest land owners with an estate of over 5,700 acres.
Working with the Mayor of London, we will use our assets to create homes, jobs and growth across the Capital.
