Wandsworth Council has approved an application to build two hotels in the Nine Elms area despite significant opposition from local residents.

The scheme will see two towers built of 16 and 10 storeys which will contain 837 hotel rooms managed by two different operators but with shared facilities in the basement.

The hotel in the smaller tower will cater for budget travellers and contain 360 bedrooms while the other will be classed as ‘affordable luxury’ and have 477 rooms.

The hotels, which are now scheduled to open in 2024, will be located to the west of the US Embassy near Embassy Gardens.

The approved designs were by Squire + Partners on behalf of the Dominvs Group which already owns 12 hotels managed by hotel operating groups..

The scheme was opposed by many people living in the area with many comments made opposing the proposal and over 600 people signing a petition against it.

Jay Ahluwalia, Principal at Dominvs Group, said, “This scheme is a testament to our team’s in-depth knowledge of local markets, and the ability to remain agile to maximise the value created for the two pan-European tenants who will lease the hotels in a further boost to the capital’s thriving hospitality sector.”
