New proposals have been revealed by Hopkins Architects to replace a 1960s office block at Hyde Park Corner with a new 190-room hotel

The scheme at 1-5 Grosvenor Place, which has been submitted to Westminster City Council planners, will be known as The Peninsula London and is to include up to 28 apartments.

The project for Grosvenor Britain & Ireland and The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels has been designed in collaboration with AJ120 practice BDP which is working on the public spaces around the new ‘landmark’. The site had been half owned by Derwent, however the company offloaded ts 50 per cent interest in the plot for £132.5million in July 2013.

If the application is approved, work could start on the site in 2017.

Peter Vernon, chief executive Officer of Grosvenor said: ‘For more than 300 years Grosvenor has carefully curated its London estate in Mayfair and Belgravia and The Peninsula London is another important step in our journey.

‘This high-quality development is sensitive to its surroundings, sustainable and will support around 2,800 jobs in the wider economy. It will enhance the West End’s reputation as one of the world’s foremost places to visit and a driving force for the UK economy.’

  • I wonder at the definition of 'carefully curated' when you look at the elevation of the existing building on this site.
