For a long time, scholars and policy makers have considered the spatial concentration of wealthy people as a not problematic phenomenon. Rooted in this context, the paper reflects on recent literature that has critically analysed the presence of the super-rich in some global cities, particularly in London. If the media have focused on the urban crisis related to the loss of urban vitality due to the phenomenon of empty homes in places where properties represent mainly an investment, here also the consequences of the presence of the super-rich on the availability of affordable housing, as well as on the shrinking domain of the public sphere in urban areas where development is addressed to these populations are considered.
Keywords: super-rich; urban crises; London
