Jestico & Whiles' Shoreditch hotel given the all clear


Hackney council gives 145-room hotel the go-ahead

The architecture practice behind the redesign of Old Spitalfields Market has won planning permission for a new 145-room hotel in the heart of Shoreditch. 

Hackney council has resolved to grant planning permission for Jestico & Whiles’ new hotel on Paul Street.

The hotel, which is described in the case officer’s report as “a bold, architectural gesture which is high quality and considered to be a positive addition within this varied local context”, will transform a site that has been vacant for more than 50 years.
