Public Realm, Placemaking & Greening

Placemaking refers to publicly accessible streets and open spaces between buildings, which are currently dominated by traffic and vehicle congestion. We implement our own innovative public realm projects to enhance the area, with projects undertaken throughout the BID term.


Villiers Street

Villiers Street, bounded to the east by the River Thames, is home to a concentration of prevalent visitor attractions and historic landmarks.

The Arc

The Arc project seeks to create a people first route for all ages and abilities between Storey’s Gate and Cardinal Place – an arc that gives the project its name.

Street Cleansing & Maintenance

We know that people are attracted to clean, green areas for business and leisure, so to enhance the public realm across London Heritage Quarter we carry out daily cleaning and reporting.

Strand Aldwych

A new space was unveiled at Strand Aldwych, transforming one of London’s busiest and most polluted streets into a vibrant destination.

Project SWAN

London Heritage Quarter supports Project SWAN, a low-carbon heat network in central London.

People Wanted Whitehall

We are delighted to be publishing ‘People Wanted: Whitehall’ and to be sharing this vision for the Whitehall area.
