In their ‘Fuelling Creative Renewal’ report, the Culture & Commerce Taskforce highlighted the reduced footfall and empty commercial spaces resulting from the pandemic. They highlighted the need for businesses to offer an office experience that attracts staff back from working at home and supports their wellbeing.
“London is experiencing one of the slowest returns of footfall among UK cities”
Centre for Cities
“Vacant units in the City of London increased by 47% during Covid-19”
The Local Data Company
“Your office may lack energy… consider ways to make the office more compelling and interesting”
City Vistas responds to these post-pandemic shifts taking place in the City. It aims to fill Culture Mile’s office and retail spaces with curated artworks, animating the area and engaging audiences – particularly local workers – with inspiring art that tells the story of local businesses’ ESG values.
City Vistas builds on the learning from the ‘Enhancing the City’ activity undertaken as part of the Culture & Commerce Taskforce and the successful pilot project undertaken with Helicalplc in their Barts Square retail units.
