Forsters acts in relation to grant of planning permission for new luxury hotel on City Road, London, EC1.
Tim Taylor, Head of Planning at Forsters, has acted for Soneva Properties providing advice in respect of their proposed new hotel development. Planning permission was granted by the London Borough of Hackney on 19 September 2011 for a new 23 storey building which will form a 247 room 4 star hotel. The hotel will include an 838 sq metre business centre, restaurant, bar and all the usual ancillary service facilities.
The striking design by Squire & Partners will occupy a site opposite Moorfields Eye Hospital on City Road. On the 1st floor a business centre will provide service offices designed to meet the needs of local small and medium sized businesses. On the 17th floor a sky bar and restaurant will offer spectacular and far reaching views across London.
