Sheraton Grand London Park Lane
EPR received planning with unanimous approval for this contemporary new build hotel scheme and pedestrian footbridge in Mayfair, Brick Street.
The project will see the demolition of two buildings which occupy 31-49 Brick Street and the erection of a stepped five to eight storey building with an additional basement level which will operate as an extension to the Grade II listed Sheraton Grand Park Lane. A total of 135 new hotel bedrooms and additional function and meeting facilities will be provided as part of the upgrade.
The new scheme will also feature a distinctive sculptural pedestrian link bridge between the new and existing hotel, which further serves at ground floor as an external covered walkway between the two buildings.
The development, set within the Mayfair Conservation Area will be split into 3 stepping volumes, designed to respond to the street and respect the existing context. Each are expressed with differentiating brickwork colour and further articulated with varied window treatments to create a rich and vibrant façade. In addition, the contextual response to the site constraints aim to dramatically improve the public realm on this narrow Mayfair street, with a recessed ground floor allowing for widened public pavements and active street frontage.
