Ealing Town Hall could be set for a transformation if officials approve a new application to turn part of the building’s west wing into a boutique hotel.
Ealing Council are said to be discussing plans for Mastcraft to refurbish the Town Hall, which would see the building closed for 18 months before a 245-year lease begins.
If given the go ahead, the council would retain the east wing of the building for civic use, while the west wing would be turned into a boutique hotel.
It is hoped that work will start on the development in mid-2017 and be unveiled in early 2019.
During the refurbishment, the Town Hall would be closed and services would be moved to other buildings.
The hotel would be home to a restaurant, health and fitness centre, fourth floor roof terrace and ground level cocktail bar with a bistro.
Ealing Council leader Julian Bell said: “Ealing Town Hall is a magnificent building that is well-loved locally but like all historic buildings it is very expensive to maintain and repair and is in considerable need of refurbishment.
“It is essential that we leave a legacy that assures its future at the civic heart of our community so that it can continue to accommodate a range of democratic, community and commercial activities that contribute to Ealing’s economic and cultural life in the 21st century and beyond.”
