The new site will comprise of hotel bedrooms across seven floors, eight residential flats (1, 2 and 3 bedrooms) on the first floor and mezzanine levels, and more shops on the ground floor. A brand new rooftop bar on the ninth floor will also be built. The majority of the new hotel rooms will be styled as windowless ‘pods’ – a design concept offering compact and convenient accommodation in city centres.
Commenting on the scheme, Cllr Heather Acton said: “This will help to breathe new life into one of London’s most famous buildings. The Trocadero is historically renowned for bringing entertainment to the city, and a new concept hotel will form a very welcome addition to the area, enabling more people to enjoy the vibrant West End for shopping, entertainment and culture.”
This iconic building is located in the heart of London’s West End, and the proposals will achieve its regeneration for a mixed use retail, leisure and hotel destination. Implementation is scheduled for early 2013.
