36-46 ALBERT EMBANKMENT
London Borough of Lambeth has resolved to grant planning permission for a landmark 600-room hotel scheme. A residential-led mixed-use scheme, designed by Make Architects, was consented in 2017. Ocubis subsequently instructed architect Jestico + Whiles, a hotel specialist, to progress an application for change of use to a hotel while retaining the previous external architectural design. The scheme consists of two interconnecting 25-storey towers which will offer guests expansive views across the river, the World Heritage site at Westminster and central London. At street level, the entrance to the new hotel will feature a circular triple-height porte-cochere flanked by curated botanical cabinets as well as a new public space next to the hotel.
The proposals will also see the refurbishment and upgrade of Vintage House, the only remaining Victorian warehouse on Albert Embankment, to provide flexible offices and creative workspace.
