A new luxury hotel set among six Georgian townhouses in London is to open in 2020.
The new property, which will be operated by Bespoke Hotels, will form part of the £500m One Crown Place mixed-use development in EC2 spearheaded by Malaysian conglomerate AlloyMtd.
It’s thought that £10m has been spent on restoring the five-storey terrace that dates back to the early 1800s and was originally designed by architect George Dance the Younger, into the new boutique.
Once completed in approximately two years’ time, the hotel will be home to 41 bedrooms, with a price point starting at £295 per night, plus a 100-cover restaurant and bar alongside a private members club.
Its design is being headed up by Bowler James Brindley, an interiors business behind a raft of high-end global hotels and restaurants including Asia De Cuba in Abu Dhabi.
Each of the six townhouses has a unique personality and the ground floor communal areas are interlinked by a series of rooms, including a public-facing deli, social café, art gallery in the lobby with a reception parlour for a relaxed check-in, a club lounge with a bar and an adjoining library room.
“We are delighted to have been appointed to oversee the operation of the hotel at One Crown Place,” commented Haydn Fentum, chief executive of Bespoke Hotels.
“The development will be a stunning landmark for London, further galvanising an area that has developed remarkably in recent years, with the hotel a key ingredient within this.”
The hotel, the name of which will be unveiled later this year, will sit alongside One Crown Place’s terracotta-clad residential towers containing 246 apartments and 140,000 sq ft of office space.
