Anglo Holt has announced the completion of a £7 million hotel and retail development in south London.
The new build development in Vauxhall, London, includes a 148-bedroom Travelodge hotel and Waitrose supermarket.Built on a reclaimed brownfield site, the seven-storey property comprises two storeys of steel frame construction topped with five storeys of timber frame and a brass effect mansard roof.
The turnkey scheme, which includes pre-finished bathroom pods, ceramic rainscreens and anti-terrorist glazing, is centrally located and provides easy access to the National Rail network, London Underground and Vauxhall’s main bus terminal.
The 52-week design and build project was awarded to Anglo Holt by developers Salmon Harvester Properties. Scottish Widows Investment Partnership provided forward funding for the project.
Andy Elwell, managing director at Anglo Holt Construction, said: “Once again we have demonstrated our expertise in the hotel sector by completing another fine Travelodge hotel. However, this project has also allowed us to extend our retail portfolio with a Waitrose supermarket.
“The development, which achieved a BREEAM Very Good rating, has good links to public transport and its central location will appeal to business personnel, tourists and the local community.”
