Union Hanover Securities has secured a site in Waterloo at 137-139 Lower Marsh, SE1, with a plan to develop a 160-bedroom hotel.
The company, which has partnered with Trac Properties, has signed a 30-year lease with Network Rail to develop a hotel using ship containers. Restaurant MEATliquor will lease part of the ground floor.

The architects are: Alsop.http://www.architectsjournal.co.uk/news/daily-news/alsop-scoops-planning-for-waterloo-hotel/8628073.article
