UK: Marlin Apartments and McAleer & Rushe have signed a £28 million contract, for the construction of a hotel-led mixed-use development at 111 Westminster Bridge Road.
Marlin has appointed McAleer & Rushe on a
design-and-build contract which also involves demolishing a 1950s
office block known as Costain House.
The contract was signed this week by Susan Cully, managing director, and John Corless, chief executive of Marlin Apartments, and McAleer & Rushe chief executive Eamonn Laverty.
The scheme, which is located close to Waterloo, Westminster and the South Bank, will consist of a 218-room apart-hotel, six office suites, a restaurant and adjoining retail.
"The development on Westminster Bridge Road is a very exciting proposition for Marlin Apartments as it allows us to diversify our offering to both the corporate and leisure travel markets," said Cully. By adopting the apart-hotel business model for the first time, we can offer guests a more compact offering but with the same high level of design, facilities, style, customer service and value as we already offer across Marlin Apartments' six other sites," she added.
McAleer & Rushe construction managing director Martin Magee said: "This is a very handsome, well located scheme which we are very proud to deliver. We are very much looking forward to working in further partnerships with John and Susan on other future projects in both London and Dublin."
