Oldwaroffice Cgi1

The plans to redevelop the Old War Office for The Hinduja Group and OHL were given approval by Westminster City Council at their committee hearing 14th February 2017.

Located in the heart of Whitehall, the Grade II* listed former government building, which has housed secretaries of state Lord Kitchener, E Lawrence and John Profumo as well as Winston Churchill during World War II will be transformed into a five-star 125 key luxury hotel and 88 one-to-five bedroom apartments.

The existing 580,000 sq ft building will be largely retained and part adapted to offer Hotel and Residential elements with the introduction of a new double-height basement and rooftop extension (strategically modelled to address key viewpoint restrictions), alongside restaurants, boutique shops, bars, a spa, a gym and a 25m pool. An internal quadrangle accessed from Horse Guards Avenue will offer an exclusive arrival experience / drop off along with alfresco dining.
