Office & hotel redevelopment in Southwark approved

Posted on by

LOCAL councillors have given the go-ahead to a new mixed use office space and hotel redevelopment in Southwark.

The decision, made last night by the local council’s Planning Committee, will see a new six storey, 192-bed hotel built in Blackfriars Road with five levels of new office space, totalling 41,800 sq ft, above.

Derwent London’s new building will be capped by a publicly accessible ‘skybar’ operated by Soho House.

An existing seven storey office building called Wedge House, which was formerly in use as Southwark Social Security Office, will be knocked down the redevelopment.

A previous planning application was previously granted for an 11-storey office building at the site but consent has now lapsed after not being taken forward.
