179prs_Game of Housing: mapping the playing field.

London Rent Mapwww.blablablarchtecture.comThe new cartographers of London are seemingly mapping the housing crisis. By tube station. The ‘London Underground Rent Map’ by thrillest.com suffers the same fault as Savills ‘Average Property Prices Within 500m of Tube Stations’: both evaluate London by tube only. By way of example, Hackney had, until recently, no tube stations yet this didn’t thwart Hackney from ‘achieving(!?)’ the greatest property value increases in a London Borough over the past decade. Time to look beyond tube stations to other (Crossrail) links… perhaps we could map ‘London House Prices vs Boris bike docking station’.
