City Plan 2040: Heritage event, celebrates the City’s historic environment and explores the pivotal role that heritage can play in placemaking, the economy, and well-being.

Leading practitioners in the field join a panel discussion. Friedrich Ludewig, ACME, along with Deborah Saunt, DSDHA, Dr. Sadie Watson, MOLA and Fred Drabble, Shaw Corporation, will share their case studies, celebrating the City’s Heritage.

Friedrich discusses the Still & Star in the Minories, London. The Still & Star, a Public House first noted in 1730 as a gin palace and slum pub, will be rebuilt in green pigmented concrete on Aldgate High Street as a gin distillery with a botanical herb farm, preserving an imprint of its history.

City Plan 2040 is the City Corporation’s vision for how the Square Mile will develop up to 2040. 

The plan will:
  • Power a growing, vibrant and competitive economy, with over 1.2m sqm of additional office floorspace delivered by 2040;
  • Transform the Square Mile into a 7-day-a-week cultural and leisure destination for everyone;
  • Ensure the City is a highly sustainable place to do business, with a net zero Square Mile by 2040;
  • Create an inclusive, accessible and healthy Square Mile where everyone feels welcome; and
  • Celebrate local heritage while re-shaping those parts of the City that have the most potential for growth and regeneration.‎
