Former London Fire Brigade HQ to house new hotel and rooftop restaurant
The redevelopment of 8 Albert Embankment, including the former London Fire Brigade headquarters, is set to include a hotel with up to 200 bedrooms and a rooftop restaurant and bar overlooking the Thames.
Planning permission is being sought from Lambeth Council to transform the Grade II-listed property and surrounding area into a mixed-use development. This would also include restaurants, a new London Fire Brigade Museum, 443 flats, a gym, shops, offices and a new state-of-the-art fire station for Lambeth, for which the site is currently being used.
The hotel would be developed to the rear of the 1930s former fire brigade headquarters, with a lobby onto a central square and Lambeth High Street, and through which guests would access the river-facing, 10th floor restaurant and bar.
Property developer U+I is working with the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority and architect firm Pilbrow & Partners on the site.
