The developer will also contribute towards public realm improvements to the area around Gloucester Road station.

Jason Kow, chief executive of Queensgate Investments said: "Queensgate Investments is proud that the Mayor has resolved to grant this unique opportunity to create one of London's largest hotel and service apartment schemes, whilst also delivering for the needs of the local community and Londoners alike."
