A 242-bedroom hotel is to be developed on the site of the former Pavilion Cinema in Shepherd's Bush, London.
Planning permission has been granted to the Asian group, Kosmopolito Hotels, to build an 11-storey upscale hotel behind the listed façade of the old cinema.
Kosmopolito Hotels is a subsidiary of Far East Consortium International, a conglomerate listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. It currently operates 17 hotels at various locations in Asia, including Singapore, Shanghai and Hong Kong.
The group owns and manages four brands - the upscale Kosmopolito brand, Boutique Series by Kosmopolito, four-star business hotel Dorsett Regency and value brand Silka.
