Dexter Moren submits plans for hotel tower beside Erskine's Ark

Dexter Moren Hammersmith Magistrates proposal

Three-building development redrawn after criticism

Dexter Moren has submitted plans for a 24-storey tower on a gateway site in west London.

The proposal is for a mixed-use scheme majoring on two hotels that would replace Hammersmith Magistrates Court which was mothballed in 2017.

The 6,700sq m site between the A4 and Tube lines is also next to Ralph Erskine’s Ark, whose distinctive boat-like design was an attempt to mitigate against the noise of its hostile environment.
