New art'otel confirmed for Battersea Power Station site
Posted on: 23/10/2015

New plans have been unveiled to open a new luxury hotel at the landmark of Battersea Power Station in London.

The lifestyle hotel operator, art’otel, will be set around the historic Grade II listed Power Station, as part of the £8bn redevelopment of the site. It will boast 160 rooms, panoramic views, a 250-square-metre roof garden, and an outdoor rooftop pool and bar overlooking the iconic chimneys. Designed by Foster + Partners, it will be managed by the PPHE Hotel Group, who are the owners of the art’otel brand.

According to Rob Tincknell, chief executive of Battersea Power Station Development Company, art’otel was the obvious choice as the brand is ‘unlike any other hotel in London to date’. “The selection process to find the right brand and operator was a very competitive and thorough one, involving the leading hotel brands from around the world. I am confident that together with art’otel we will deliver a beyond expectations hotel.” He added.

The roof garden will be designed by the New York High Line team, James Corner Field Operations, overlooking impressive skyline views from the luxury lifestyle hotel. Beneath the roof garden will be a signature restaurant and bar, from an impressive height to show the Power Station and skyline views.

PPHE Hotel Group president and chief executive, Boris Ivesha, added: “The Battersea Power Station Development will transform London’s skyline; creating a new destination and hub for local communities, visitors and residents.

“As a company we take pride in opening hotels, restaurants and bars in areas which are embarking on new urban and community journeys and the Battersea Power Station project is a spectacular example of this.

“Art’otel perfectly complements the shareholders of Battersea Power Station’s vision and we look forward to working together to create a new chapter in London’s history over the next four years.”

The hotel is set to open in 2019. The Skyline block will also house shops, affordable housing and a medical centre.
