Lloyd's is listed

Lloyd's building

The Government has announced that the Lloyd’s building at One Lime Street, London, has been awarded Grade 1 listed status on the advice of English Heritage.

Heritage Minister John Penrose announced the accolade today, crediting the building’s ‘architectural innovation, historic interest and celebrated design’. The Lloyd’s building is the youngest ever to receive graded status.

Grade 1 buildings are considered to be of ‘exceptional interest’ and extremely rare – only 2.5% of the 375,000 buildings listed by English Heritage are classified as Grade 1.

“Lloyd’s was ahead of its time when it approved the building of One Lime Street,” says Richard Ward, Chief Executive of Lloyd’s. “It’s a world famous building that has gone on to embody the world famous Lloyd’s brand.”

The building, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, was designed to meet the Lloyd’s market’s future demands by allowing the underwriting space, ‘the Room’, to expand or contract as required by the market.

“The building is still modern, innovative and unique – it has really stood the test of time just like the market that sits within it,” continues Ward.

“The listing decision will protect it against unsuitable alteration or development whilst retaining its flexibility to adapt with the market’s needs.”
