Property firm Frogmore has secured planning permission to convert a building close to London's Liverpool Street Station into an 80-bedroom boutique hotel.
Architects Allies and Morrison have designed the 72,000sq ft property, while Conran Holdings, which is still D&D London's majority shareholder, will design the interior.
The hotel will feature a 7th-floor rooftop restaurant and bar, with an outdoor terrace overlooking the city skyline. Construction work, which includes demolition of the existing buildings, will start later this year. The hotel is set to open in summer 2012.
