Hospitality group, Locke Hotels, will open its second hotel in London in March 2020. Locke at Broken Wharf will have 113 bedrooms and will be located on the Thames at London’s Millennium Bridge.

Locke aims to blend a high-end lifestyle hotel with the space and flexibility of an apartment. The hotel’s social spaces comprise an all-day restaurant, bar concept and a co-working area, as well as offering cultural programmes spanning wellness, fitness, art and music.

Each of the 113 studios in Locke at Broken Wharf will be equipped with custom designed furniture and fittings as well as a high-spec kitchen.

Locke at Broken Wharf joins three existing Locke hotels: in East London, Manchester and Edinburgh.  Two more London openings are planned later this year in Bermondsey and Dalston.  

Locke at Broken Wharf is located minutes from both Cannon Street and Blackfriars stations on the north bank of the River Thames.

Planning permission has been granted for the UK’s first ‘super slender’ tower block in Birmingham.

The ‘211 Broad Street’ skyscraper will rise to 37-storeys, or 116m in height, but will be just 9.5m wide. The building will house an aparthotel featuring a bar, restaurant, gym and residents lounge.

The skyscraper block will be located near Brindley Place, one of the new stops on the West Midlands Metro extension and within easy walking distance of city centre Birmingham.

Construction is expected to be finished in 2022.

Wildes Hotel Group has submitted a planning application to create the first Wildes-branded boutique hotel in the centre of Chester.

The group intend to convert offices in Bridge Street, which are currently vacant, into a new 16-bedroom boutique hotel and spa.

The office building is a Grade II-listed building set within the historical Rows of Chester with views over Eastgate Street. The building features huge fireplaces, stone windows and original beams – all of which will be ‘sensitively refurbished’.

The Wildes Hotel will feature a bar and restaurant, as well as a rooftop pool and spa.

If everything goes to plan a spring 2021 opening is envisaged.
