Investor and developer Dominvs Group has received planning permission from Wandsworth Council for its 837-room dual hotel development in London’s Nine Elms.

The plans will see an 11-storey, 360-room midscale hotel built alongside a 15-storey, 477-room “affordable luxury” property, which will also offer a ground-floor cafe and rooftop restaurant and bar.

Both properties will be designed by Squire and Partners, and are currently being referred to simply as the north and south hotels, but it is understood they will be managed by two as yet-unnamed hotel operators.

The development will be situated to the west of the US embassy, with the hotels slated to open in 2024.

In 2020 Hyatt announced plans to open its first Park Hyatt property in the UK, located in the Nine Elms area and marketed as the Park Hyatt London River Thames. The group’s website currently lists the hotel as “coming soon”.

Commenting on the news, principal at Dominvs Group, Jay Ahluwalia, said:

“Following a change in market conditions, we submitted revised proposals for two high-quality hotels, which will make a significant contribution to satisfying the need for the additional 2,230 hotel rooms that the London Plan has identified.

“This scheme is a testament to our team’s in-depth knowledge of local markets, and the ability to remain agile to maximise the value created for the two pan-European tenants, who will lease the hotels in a further boost to the capital’s thriving hospitality sector.”
