[First look] Bennetts Associates has completed this £72 million hotel project close to the Tower of London
Replacing a 1960s building, the 12-storey structure is claimed to be largest hotel to open in the square mile.
Featuring what is alleged to be Europe’s largest living wall, the project includes a glazed foyer, roof terraces and a rooftop herb garden.
The 583-room hotel is topped with a ‘SkyLounge’ that offers views over the capital and the Tower of London UNESCO World Heritage site.
Façade materials included Jura limestone, pre-cast concrete and zinc panels, while the planted walls are set back from the main façades.
