A press release states that the eight-storey, 6,224 sqm property is due for completion in summer 2022, and will also feature two residential units with a dedicated entrance on King’s Scholars’ Passage to the rear of the building.
The new hotel will be part of management and development company 4C Hotel Group’s portfolio, which already includes the Comfort Inn Victoria and Easyhotel Victoria. It has yet to be confirmed what brand this latest development will operate under.
The property will replace current buildings on the site, and according to DMA “When viewed from the south the building appears white framed with subtle accents of brickwork, while from the north, in the context of the reddish masonry, terracotta and stone of Cathedral mansions, the building shows itself predominantly of varied tones of brick panels with hints of light stone”.
Commenting on the news Mark Wood, Partner at DMA, said:
“This is far from the old-fashioned cookie cutter hotel façade. In order to break the composition of the building within its streetscape setting, the overall façade has been broken up into several tonal elements, giving it two appearances.
“This project adds to DMA’s growing portfolio of considered, unique and interesting hotels that we have been designing and building in towns and cities across Britain and beyond.”
DMA is also responsible for London hotel projects including The Dixon (part of Marriott’s Autograph Collection), The Great Northern Hotel (part of Marriott’s Tribute Portfolio), and Vintry and Mercer.
As reported last year, DMA has designed the forthcoming Rogue City hotel within the converted Hobson House on St Andrew’s Street in Cambridge.
