100 MINORIES HOTEL, LONDON
GLOBAL GRANGE LTD
JOHN REDDINGTON LTD
A 9-storey, 270 room luxury hotel facing onto the Tower of London. This hotel ranks as one of the most complex in the City of London in terms of adjacent properties and associated technical approvals.
The Network Rail line out of Fenchurch Street is carried on a Victorian viaduct immediately to the north, the Circle Line passes immediately to the west undercutting part of the development and under the building footprint a public highway passes through one wing and a footpath through the other. The east, west and south boundaries are all public land and a major London Underground sub-station is to the west. UKPN also have an existing substation on the site which serves the surrounding area.
The site is also just outside the Roman City wall and extensive archaeological investigation has been required. The two storey deep basement was constructed using 900 diameter secant piles.
