citizenM has announced the acquisition of a property in Victoria to become its fourth London hotel, set to open in 2021.
The 226-room hotel will comprise basement and ground floor levels, with ten upper floors and will be a transformation of the existing Denison House.
Construction will commence in May 2020, following the demolition of Denison House, which will begin in November 2019.
The hotel will be built using citizenM’s modular construction method.
Klaas van Lookeren Campagne, CEO of citizenM hotels, says: “We are excited to have completed this transaction after securing planning consent in a prime location in Westminster. With three hotels already operating successfully in London, this new property will offer a fantastic addition to our existing portfolio and confirms our commitment to expand further in London’s most desirable neighbourhoods.”
The hotel’s interiors will be designed by citizenM’s Amsterdam-based partner Concrete, and will feature furniture from long-term collaborator Vitra.
The new Victoria-based hotel will be located at 292 Vauxhall Bridge Road and will be the fourth stand post of citizenM in London, following openings in Bankside (2012), Tower of London (2016) and Shoreditch (2016).
The first citizenM hotel opened at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport in 2008, and the brand now operates 19 hotels in cities including London, Paris, New York, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, and Kuala Lumpur.
