The revised proposals will deliver:
• The regeneration of an under-utilised site with a new hotel and other complementary uses within the envelope of the consented residential building;
• 600 extra hotel rooms in line with the requirements of the London Plan and broadening the choice in hotel operator locally;
• Create an active street frontage by providing restaurant / retail space at ground floor level;
• A new, sustainable building, designed to a high-quality using materials, such as stone and glass;
• A sensitive refurbishment of Vintage House, the last remaining Victorian warehouses on the Albert Embankment, meaning no office space will be lost;
• The improvement of Glasshouse Walk by maintaining and strengthening the link between the river and Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens.
• A car free scheme, apart from disabled parking.
The proposals will support the economic vitality of the area with new job opportunities created through the proposed hotel and commercial space, alongside jobs created along the supply chain and during construction.
The proposed scheme will deliver 450 jobs, 200 more than the number generated by the previously consented residential scheme.
During the construction phase our contractors will provide employment and training opportunities for the local community, as well as apprenticeships in various disciplines.
