UK: Initial plans for an aparthotel and rooftop restaurant on the site of a former car park have been put before Harrow Council.

The council’s major development panel received a presentation on the proposed development at the Vaughan Road car park in Harrow town centre. The council, as the former owner of the site, had planned to develop the land.

However, due to changes in the market, it sold the site to developer Dandi Living, which hopes to provide 146 rooms in a building up to 12 storeys, as well as a rooftop restaurant overlooking Harrow-on-the-Hill.

Ali Ravanshad, founder of Dandi, said aparthotels are "a growing global trend" and that the project would “put Harrow town centre on the map”.

Adam Khan Architects, which is designing the project, described it as a “striking, destination building”, with detail inspired by the historic buildings in the borough, including Harrow School.

Cllr Ghazanfar Ali, who sits on the major developments panel, welcomed the initial plans, saying there is a “need for good quality hotels” in the borough.

Dandi described the scheme as “a work in progress” and said the company is “some way from submitting a planning application”.
