This site is about
The Barbican, the Barbican Centre and the neighbourhood facilities, is now Grade II listed. It is about 50 years since the first ideas were proposed to develop the bomb-damaged site. The 12.5 million face-lift to the public areas
has been completed, but changes continue, with the opening of flats in
Frobisher Court, development of the Heron Tower on the site of the old
fire station, and the movement of two cinemas.
The views from the towers are great and from the balcony one can see a panorama including St. Paul's and new office building. Within walking distance are modern office buildings by virtually all of the finest architects of the day.
