Historic plans for the site were approved by Westminster City Council in 2016, but did not come forward and the properties were subsequently marketed for sale.
The joint owners purchased the hotel and adjacent residential properties at 36-37 Hertford Street and 16-17 Market Mews in June 2021.
The existing hotel building is dilapidated, does not meet current sustainability standards and the interior falls short of modern expectations for a quality hotel in such a well-known location.
Working with award-winning architects Buckley Gray Yeoman, we believe this is an opportunity to breathe new life into the properties.
Planning application submitted
We would like to provide you with an update on the plans for the former Park Lane Mews Hotel and associated residences.
During the summer we held a public consultation to present the proposals for the site and understand the community's views. We received positive interest, constructive dialogue and comments from both local residents and businesses.
The proposals have evolved following the consultation event and the massing has undergone numerous iterations to ensure that the amenity of neighbouring residents and businesses is protected as much as possible.
In direct response to feedback from discussions with neighbours and the Council, the plans have been revised to locate the plant equipment within the building rather than on the roof. The plant moving inside the building envelope represents a reduction of approximately 1.85 metres from the plans shown at our consultation event. The proposals then feature a contemporary two-storey extension at the fifth and sixth floor level, which are set back to respect neighbouring amenity. Overall, this represents one additional floor from the current building.
Following this productive engagement with residents, local stakeholders and the Council, an application has now been submitted to Westminster City Council and we anticipate this will be determined in the coming months.Disclaimer

The City of Westminster Planning Applications Sub-Committee is set to approve plans for the redevelopment of the Park Lane Mews Hotel site on Tuesday 21st February 2023 at 6.30 pm.
The proposal involves the refurbishment and extension of the hotel to create an 82-room boutique hotel, and the refurbishment of the residential buildings to build 16 apartments. They also include the demolition of some buildings and construction of two new floors for the hotel, a new plant area, and a new four-story building for part of the hotel. The ground floor will include a public restaurant, café, and hotel lobby.
