September 21, 2005 The 2005 Award for Building in an Historic Context, awarded by RIBA London and English Heritage has gone to the Tower Hill Environs Scheme. The Stanton Williams project was considered an outstanding contender by the jury. The jury citation for Tower Hill Environs read: "The quality of the hard landscaping of this scheme is amazing, and balances well against the historic edifice of the Tower. The change in the approach to the Tower is remarkable, befitting its status as a World Heritage Site and Royal Palace. This project demonstrates a strong contribution from all parties: the architect, Tower Hamlets planning department, English Heritage and Historic Royal Palaces. Tower Hill Environs is an important new public square on the river for London".
