City Temple Quarter, Holborn Viaduct, City of London

Shiva Hotels



Eric Parry Architects and EPR

Planning Resolution have secured planning and listed building consent for a new high-quality hotel in the City of London, designed by Eric Parry Architects, with the adaptation of the heritage asset that is the adjacent Grade II listed City Temple Church for workspace that enables refurbishment and enhancement of the ecclesiastical part of the Church.

City Temple Quarter development will play a key role in the emerging ‘Cultural Quarter’ in this part of the City.

Offering a unique and truly mixed-use development comprising a high-quality 191-bed hotel and the introduction of workspace in under-utilised Church space, in-turn providing the ‘cross funding’ for the refurbishment and enhancement of the Grade II listed City Temple Church.

The project comprises a unique hotel and heritage development, with strong viability justification required in the face of a robust office safeguarding planning policy, and a complex ecclesiastical exemption process for the associated refurbishment of the listed City Temple.

A Section 73 and Section 19 application to address amendments as a result of design evolution post approval.

Local Planning Authority:

London Borough of Richmond upon Thames
