Green light for EPR's 160 Blackfriars Road proposals

160 Blackfriars Road News Story

We are excited to share that EPR’s design proposals for 160 Blackfriars Road have been given the green light after being granted unanimous approval by Southwark Council.

EPR was appointed by Endurance Land and Angelo Gordon & Co to design a 169-key lifestyle hotel and an affordable makerspace to complete a mixed-use development which surrounds a new 3,000m2 landscaped public space – Friars Yard. Accessed via an opening in the retail frontage of the existing office building, Friars Yard creates a new and vibrant identity for this location on the busy Blackfriars Road thoroughfare.

Our proposals for the new-build hotel include a pale brick façade inspired by Southwark’s traditional warehouse buildings and a ground-floor space which opens into the bustling Friars Yard. With the potential to hold exhibitions, performances and other cultural events, this shared space will form a thriving local hub where hotel guests, office workers and residents can come together.
