Grade II* listing for James Stirling’s last completed building

Posted on by

AN OFFICE and retail building in the City of London which was designed by James Stirling and completed five years after his death has been awarded a Grade II* listing.

Built in 1997, No 1 Poultry has been become the youngest building in the national register of listed buildings.

The designation for the property, which also includes an entrance to Bank underground station, comes almost a year after the Department for Culture, Media & Sport first turned down Historic England’s recommendation for listed building status.

But following a legal challenge by the Twentieth Century Society, the government reviewed the decision and the building entered the register of listing properties yesterday.

The landmark building at the corner of Poultry and Queen Victoria Street contains five floors of office space as well as retail units and a rooftop restaurant.
