Plans to open a branch of the Hoxton Hotel in Blackfriars Road have been revealed.
Last month we reported on developer Derwent London's plans to redevelop the former social security office at Wedge House into a mixed-use hotel and office scheme.
Now further details of the proposals – designed by Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands – have been revealed at a public exhibition held on Friday at Christ Church Southwark.
The scheme includes a 192-room hotel to be known as 'The Hoxton, Southwark' featuring restaurants and bars run in partnership with the Soho House Group.
The 13-storey building would have the lobby and restaurants on the ground floor and conference facilities on the first floor, with six floors of hotels rooms and five floors of offices above.
If the development goes ahead it will mean the loss of the existing Prince Albert pub in Colombo Street.
The original Hoxton Hotel opened in east London in 2006 and a Holborn outpost was added this year. The mini-chain also has plans to expand to New York, Amsterdam and Paris.
