No 1 Poultry is an office and retail building in London. It is located at the junction of Poultry and Queen Victoria Street, adjacent to Bank junction, in the City of London financial district. The building was designed by James Stirling for a site which then was owned by developer Peter Palumbo, and first assembled by Palumbo's father, Rudolph, in the 1960s. Originally intended to be the site of a modernist office tower designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe in the manner of the Seagram Building in New York City, that scheme was aborted following one of the great architectural and planning show-downs of the 1970s. A new design was created, Stirling's final design, in a postmodernist style with an outer shell of bands of rose-pink stone. The structure was built after his death and is considered one of the greatest masterpieces of the postmodernist style in London. In 2016, following proposals to alter it, it received government recognition with a listing at grade II*, making it the youngest listed building in England.
The building was owned by Heinrich Feldman until he sold it to Perella Weinberg Partners for £110 million in 2014.

  • Coq d'Argent equals great dining experience; the food was delicious, beautifully presented, staff was attentive and the place is a good escape from crowds & busy Bank area. They have a roof terrace so if the weather is good you can have your lunch outside.
  • WeWork is located inside, full of offices and co-working spaces. Quirky interior design. We've had some challenges reaching the staff via phone and email (never reply) so not giving 5 stars.
