Hilton Hotels Aim For Sutton Tower

Proposals have been put forward to redevelop a site in the London Borough of Sutton and have been reviewed by the Mayor of London.

Currently the site that faces onto Brighton Road is occupied by two buildings one of twelve storeys, and the other of three storeys which were built way back in 1963.

The proposal which has been put forward by Sutherland House limited will see a mixed use 20 storey tower, which has been designed by Orbit Architects replace the existing buildings.

The new building will be constructed from concrete and glass and have a resemblance to the present building which will help it meld in with the surrounding area. Basement floors to the back of the tower will house machinery along with car parking and bike parking areas. The main tower will sit on top of a podium which will provided retail spaces and Grade A office spaces .

Above this a cantilevered hotel block which will have a timber underside to add interest will be present, this will house a 70 room hotel to be run by the Hilton Hotels which will also provide a conference room breakfast room and a health studio. The top two storeys of the tower will house a restaurant that will offer patrons excellent views of London.

The remainder of the tower will be dedicated to providing 96 1-3 bedroom apartments 40% of which will be classed as affordable housing, this falls short of the 50% required by the London Plan Policy. The proposal also neglects to provide child recreational space and it has been recommended that the flat roof could be used to meet this requirement.

All in all with a few minor adjustments the proposal should gain approval with the powers that be and Sutton could soon be looking forward to its first tall addition to its centre for many years.
