Hotel planned at former Greenwich Magistrates Court

June 5, 2019 by NSC in Weekly News
Plans for a £70M hotel at the former Magistrates’ Court building in Greenwich, south London, have been submitted by the London Hotel Group (LHG).

The project also includes two empty adjacent school buildings, that will be converted to create part of the 293-bed hotel.

Meher Nawab, CEO of LHG, said: “We are proud to be submitting a design that is not only respectful to the local heritage – particularly regarding the Magistrates’ Court – but will also bring a brownfield site back into vibrant and viable use.”

Designed by architect Squire & Partners, building heights will vary from three to seven-storeys, with several new warehouse-style buildings providing the majority of the hotel rooms.

The ground floor of the former Magistrates’ Court and one of the school buildings will contain front-of-house hotel services such as the bar, restaurant and café.

Further facilities include a gym, pool, conference centres and parking spaces.

The sustainability strategy for Greenwich Magistrates Court, prepared by XCO2, is targeting the achievement of a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating through a combination of efficient building fabric, a highly efficient centralised heat-distribution network and renewable technologies.
