Councillors shun officers’ advice and refuse 10-storey hotel with two-way facade
Dexter Moren Associates’ proposals for a new 169-room hotel in Victoria with a dual facade have been dealt a blow by Westminster councillors who rejected advice to approve the scheme, citing concerns about its 10-storey height.
The practice’s plans, drawn up for developer 4C Hotel Group, required the demolition of a run of older structures on Vauxhall Bridge Road, including three office buildings of varying heights and three Victorian terraced houses.
In addition to the hotel rooms, a restaurant, bar and gym, the Dexter Moren proposals also included two new homes accessed off King’s Scholars’ Passage at the rear of the development site.
