I'm fairly sure that no one has ever tried, and I'm also fairly sure (in my own opinion) that any attempt to list would fail.
although it is fairly easy for anyone to attempt to get it listed. You just need to make a case for it's being of architectural importance, locally or nationaly, and submit that to the Department of Culture Media and Sport (DCMS) with photo's if possible. they will then decide if that case merits actually looking at it, and deciding. Putting in the fact that it was the first covered shopping centre, and any other information that would help it cause (like for instance if it was designed by a renowned architect) would be good.
The only things that I have found that are listed (AFAIK) are the Metropolitan Tabernacle
, the Michael Faraday memorial, and a K6 telephone box on New Kent road opposite the junction with Falmouth Rd.
