DMA has secured planning consent on behalf of The Splendid Hotel Group to convert ‘Queen Anne’s Chambers’ in London’s St. James Park into a 300 bed Intercontinental hotel. The property has its facades at 22-30 Broadway, 37-45 Tothill St and 1-3 Dean Farrar St and comprises a basement, ground floor level and five upper floors. Originally built in the 19th Century as a hospital, it has more recently been used as office space with retail outlets along the ground floor.
The £20million conversion will retain much of the original façade and feature a multi-level entrance atrium, bar & restaurant, conference facilities and 300 luxury suites and bedrooms arranged around four distinct wings. These spaces are separated by light wells allowing good lighting and ventilation into the structure.
