High rise development in Nottingham was most active during the 1960s when many residential flats and tower blocks were constructed. However several towerblocks have been demolished or renovated during the 1980s and 2010s. High rise development slowed during the 1970s, and since 2000 only a few high rise buildings have been constructed.
