Broadgate granted immunity from listing

Culture minister Jeremy Hunt has granted buildings Three, Four and Six on the Broadgate estate a certificate of immunity from listing for five years

The decision paves the way for Make’s £460 million Five Broadgate scheme to replace two of the estate’s 1980s Arup Associates-designed buildings.

In June English Heritage failed in a bid to have the buildings listed at Grade II*. The heritage organisation described the buildings as a: ‘triumph of urbanism’ that provides a point architectural and historic interest in the capital. 

The 65,000m² project for developers British Land and Blackstone will feature the largest floor plates in The City, housing up to 750 staff on each floor and 6,000 workers in total.

 

The Certificate of Immunity for Broadgate

‘Under section 6(2) of the 1990 Act, the effect of this certificate is to preclude the Secretary of State from listing nos 3, 4 and 6 Broadgate for a period of five years from the date of issue (being the date of this letter), and to preclude the local planning authority from serving a Building Preservation Notice (BPN) on the buildings during that period’.
