Plans for 382-bedroom hotel in London's Holborn submitted

Plans have been submitted for a new 382-bedroom hotel in London's Holborn featuring Europe's largest living wall, workspaces and a public roof terrace.

The planning application for 61-65 Holborn Viaduct has been submitted by real estate and private equity firm Dominvs Group, which estimated the cost of the transformation could reach £250m.

The finished Citicape House will incorporate a hotel, viewing gallery with separate entrance, rooftop restaurant and bar as well as workspaces aimed at small to medium enterprises.

Jay Ahluwalia, Dominvs group director, said: "Dominvs Group is incredibly proud of our proposals for 61-65 Holborn Viaduct which aim to play a major role in the regeneration of the Smithfield area. With the City of London's vision for the area and the creation of the Culture Mile, we feel this project will support and enhance the overall ambition for this exciting, new cultural destination as the creative heart of the Square Mile.

"Coming after our successful opening of the Dixon at Tower Bridge and the recent breaking of ground at Creed Court, St Pauls we hope our proposals demonstrate our ongoing commitment to providing developments of the highest quality in central London. We also believe the building's proposed living green wall, the largest in Europe, could be an exciting, innovative and celebrated addition to London for years to come."
