art’otel london Hoxton is progressing its pre-opening construction timetable, with a hotly anticipated opening set for 2023.
The new hotel, part of the PPHE Hotel Group, is part of a £180m development project between Hoxton and Shoreditch in the capital, with the next phase of construction on the 27-floor build due to commence in summer 2019.
Following amended planning consent, the finished hotel will consist of 343 bedrooms and suites alongside five floors of office space.
The top floors will offer a lounge, bar, gym and destination restaurant, all boasting skyline views.
The lower ground levels will be reserved for gallery space and will play host to a rotating calendar of exhibitions, as well as cultural and artistic events supporting established and emerging talent at a local, national and international level.
The ground floor will be used for hotel and separate office entry with escalators leading to a mezzanine for the reception and second restaurant.
Four floors will be connected to the property and will comprise the back of house kitchen, gym, pool and sauna.
The first stage of the project for art’otel London Hoxton started at the end of last year.
The hotel will open in 2023 and become the second art’otel to launch in London following the opening later this year of art’otel London Battersea. The 160-bedroom hotel, complete with rooftop pool and bar, signature restaurant will launch in a few months’ time within the Battersea Power Station.
Boris Ivesha, president & chief executive officer at PPHE Hotel Group, commented: “We are delighted to be expanding our pre-opening works for this flagship project and bring our wholly owned art’otel brand to an area of London which is known to be a leading cultivator of arts and cultural programmes at a global level.
“Working with the local and art community will be one of our main priorities and we are already committed to the gallery being open to the public for free use throughout the year. We are looking forward to creating long term value for the brand and to see art’otel London Hoxton join art’otel London Battersea Power Station and the recently announced New York City project which will be first art’otel outside of Europe.”
