Council signs off planning papers after development gets six-floor haircut
Rogers Stirk Harbour & Partners-designed plans for a hotel and office development in Hammersmith have been signed off by the local council after six floors were lopped off the original scheme.
The practice – which was based half a mile down the river until last year – sought permission to replace two ageing office blocks with a 28-storey hotel building with a top-level bar and new office space earlier this year. The offices are spread across the structure’s lower-rise elements.
Despite being supported by a design review panel, the scheme drew local opposition in its original incarnation, attracting 68 letters of objection and concerns from the Hammersmith Society and the Hammersmith and Fulham Historic Buildings Group – both of which were worried about the scheme’s height.
