The Odeon West End on Leicester Square is to be redeveloped into a mixed use hotel, cinema, residential and restaurant complex, following its purchase by Jasminder Singh, chairman and CEO of the Edwardian Group.
The Odeon West End is situated on the south western corner of the square, and according to a press release by Radisson Edwardian Hotels, the property has planning permission for “a new 245 bedroom hotel, a two screen cinema, 33 residential properties and five restaurants on Leicester Square”.
No further details about the development have been released at this stage, but Radisson Edwardian said that “Mr Singh and his group are planning to make significant announcements about the purchase in the coming weeks”.
Leicester Square is currently undergoing a major facelift in time for the London 2012 Games, and last year Starwood opened its first W Hotels property in London on the north west corner of the square (for a review click here).
