Historic England has taken the decision to designate elements of the former London Chest Hospital as Grade II listed. This listing covers the Main Hospital Building, South Wing, Sanitary Tower, Victorian Gas Lamp, dwarf wall, site railings, and entrance gates.

The joint venture partners have always taken the heritage value of the site very seriously and have worked closely with our own heritage consultants, architects, and Tower Hamlets Council to advise on the design. We continue to work closely with all parties in developing the future vision for the site, in which all elements of the proposals will be carefully considered in line with the listing.
