The Cable Street project is the first scheme to go ahead as part of the New Cross Neighbourhood Development Framework, which covers a district to the northeast of the city core.
The new hotel will be designed for Axcel Hospitality who aims to establish a ‘distinctive sense of place’.
The 8,085 sq mt scheme will be nine storeys high and created in the place of a surface car park. The four-star hotel will be home to 172 bedrooms, café / bar, fitness centre and meeting rooms.

“With its sculpted massing and careful attention to materiality, the new hotel seeks to provide an exemplar high-quality design to stimulate regeneration throughout the rest of the New Cross district,” says Partner David Green of SimpsonHaugh and Partners.
