British Land has confirmed that it has received formal notification from English Heritage that the Secretary of State, Maria Miller MP, has issued Certificates of Immunity for Broadgate Phases 1-4. The buildings subject to the Certificates of Immunity comprise 1-2 and 8-12 Broadgate, 100 Liverpool Street, the Octagon, Octagon Arcade and the sculpture 'Fulcrum', Broadgate Circle, as well as Broadgate Square itself with the sculpture 'Leaping Hare on Crescent and Bell' and the associated paving and landscaping.

In June 2011, the previous Secretary of State, Jeremy Hunt MP, considered Broadgate Phases 1-4 for listing and in July 2011 he issued Certificates of Immunity for 3, 4 and 6 Broadgate. British Land applied for Certificates of Immunity on the remaining buildings and structures of Broadgate Phases 1-4 in September 2012. The Secretary of State noted in her decision letter that no new significant information has been provided on the buildings’ special architectural or historic interest since the previous decision not to list was made in June 2011 and that buildings 4 and 6 Broadgate have since been demolished which has impacted on the complex as a whole.

British Land will continue to look at the future plans for refurbishment or redevelopment of these buildings with the potential to generate hundreds of millions of pounds of investment and create thousands of new jobs. This decision provides certainty, without the threat of listing now or in the immediate future, enabling us to continue managing the successful evolution of Broadgate, so that it continues to be an engine of economic vitality, recovery and growth.

In June 2012, British Land appointed the architectural practice Hopkins to draw up design proposals for 100 Liverpool Street and 8-12 Broadgate and to enhance the retail and public amenity associated with those buildings.
