Client: Z Hotels Ltd

Architect: TT Architects & Harper Downie Architects

Planning Resolution act as planning advisor to Z Hotels on all their hotel development, securing a number of hotels in London, including the first windowless hotel rooms in London.

The majority of Z Hotels permissions involve the change of use from office to hotel, often in the face of strong office safeguarding planning policy. In addition, several hotels have had heritage sensitivities due to the building being listed/located within a Conservation Area.

We have successfully secured the following hotel development for Z Hotels:

413 The Strand, City of Westminster, London

Planning Resolution secured planning permission for a new 118 room hotel in 2017. The site is located within a Conservation Area and next to the Adelphi Theatre, and required sensitive adaptation and management of noise.

The permission includes infill extensions within two lightwells enhancing the floorspace of the building, alterations to the fenestration, new and replacement plant, photovoltaics at roof level, and an ancillary café.

The scheme required a change of use of an existing office building. The scheme has required several successful Section 73 applications due to design development requiring amendment to the scheme post approval.

Planning Resolution secured planning permission for a new 141 room hotel in 2019.

The scheme required a change of use of an existing office building with an infill of a lightwell and an ancillary café. The proposal required detailed discussion on acoustic matters due to the close proximity of residential neighbours to the rear of the building.
