Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands lands council backing for O2 hotel scheme
Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands has won Greenwich Council’s backing for this four-star hotel next to the O2 arena in east London
The design, which features a 452-bedroom hotel plus apartments, was approved by the authority last week but must now win a green-light from the London mayor’s office.
Denise Hyland, Greenwich Council’s member for regeneration, enterprise and skills, said: ‘This will be the first four-star hotel east of Tower Bridge on this side of the river.
‘If the scheme gets the final go-ahead, the hotel will provide much-needed tourist accommodation for The O2 and what will then be the Royal Borough of Greenwich. It will also mean more job opportunities for local people.’
The project on the Greenwich Penionsula features a 3,000m² event space with capacity for 3,000 people and a green ‘living roof’.
