Kensington

Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea

We are progressing plans to redevelop the existing Holiday Inn hotel at Gloucester Road, in London’s historic West End. The proposals, bought forward jointly with our partners Queensgate Investments, will deliver a world-class 749 bedroom hotel, 340 serviced apartments and 62 residential apartments. The scheme will create up to 800 jobs and, for the first time in a private-sector development in London, each of the new homes will be genuinely affordable. The plans set the development amongst exceptionally high-quality public realm: reintroducing a traditional garden square which has been lost for half a century, to become the only publicly accessible green space within 1km, and rejuvenating the streets surrounding Gloucester Road Underground Station.
