New boutique hotel plan hopes to regenerate London’s Camden


Real estate company, Market Tech Holdings, has revealed plans to develop a boutique hotel in London’s Camden market in a bid to regenerate the high street there.

Market Tech, which owns real estate in Camden in North London, said it already has planning permission for a two-storey building at Union Street Market, the open-air market on Camden High Street, and now hopes to get the green light for a boutique hotel.

The company said that a hotel of this calibre is a “key step” in regenerating Camden High Street, highlighting the need to attract higher quality tenants.
