A former mill in the Midlands has been awarded nearly 13 million pounds, to restore and regenerate the site where it stands.
It's one of the biggest grants of it's kind so far this year - for a building which has an important history.
Shrewsbury's Flax Mill Maltings was "phenomenally important" in the creation of the world's skyscrapers, a site project manager said.
Flax Mill Project Manager Elizabeth Perkins added that the world's first iron framed building was created out of "necessity" from "revolutionary thinking".
"All over the country there were terrible fires that killed lots of people, so they were looking for a solution," Ms Perkins said.
She added: "No one else would have gone on and taken that leap that then went into steal and steal frame, that then went into the technology that went into skyscrapers today.
"It's a seminal moment, and it just changed people's attitude, it's a moment in history that just transformed things."
Today it was announced that the Flax Mill Maltings in Shrewsbury had been awarded a lottery grant of £12.8 million to regenerate the site.
The Flax Mill Maltings has been awarded the second highest lottery grant in the West Midlands.
The £12.8 million grant was the biggest given to a project in the recent round of funding which aims to promote heritage tourism in the UK.
Reyhan King, Head of Heritage Lottery Fund, West Midlands said: "We believe that heritage is more about just conserving buildings, and that's one of the reasons why we wanted to fund this project.
"What this will mean for the Shrewsbury area is activities for local people, there will also be an exhibition and display place that will attract tourists."
She added, "an estimated 300 employees will be based here, we feel that it demonstrates how heritage can support economic growth."
Councillor Alan Mosley from Shropshire Council said the Flax Mill Maltings redevelopment will become a "centre for learning" for the Shropshire community.
He said: "We're going to put learning facilities in here, conference facilities, children's play facilities, cafe, restaurant and you'll see the open space that can be used for performance, dance and music.
"Whatever the community wants to to here we will have the capacity to facilitate it we hope."
