RMA's City Airport hotel and homes set for take-off

RMA Architects' proposals for a hotel and residential development near London City Airport

Planners recommend block for approval despite half the flats being single aspect

RMA Architects proposals for a mixed-use development a stone’s throw from east London’s City Airport are set for approval.

The practice’s scheme for Accor Hotels subsidiary Ibis Budget London City Airport would deliver a 180-room hotel and 77 flats in a development of up to 10 storeys on land off North Woolwich Road. The 0.43ha site currently houses an 81-room Etap hotel.

The proposals have drawn objections from the nearby Brick Lane Music Hall, situated in the grade II*-listed former St Mark’s Church, and sugar refiner Tate & Lyle.
