No. 1 Poultry, London
The Department for Culture, Media and Sport has written to Historic England to inform us of their view that the proposed changes to No.1 Poultry do not constitute substantial harm to the building and that therefore, due to its relatively recent construction, it does not meet the criteria for listing.
Emily Gee, Head of Listing at Historic England, said:
“We recommended that No.1 Poultry be listed at Grade II* and are disappointed that the Secretary of State did not agree that it was under threat. We consider that the proposed changes to the building would alter its character and wanted to provide clarity on the building’s special architectural interest to inform its future management.
No.1 Poultry is a highly significant late work by one of Britain's leading post-war architects, James Stirling. It was a key work of late 20th century architecture, built by a prominent developer who was determined to create a building of enduring quality.”
