Lewisham will see a new 127-room hotel after plans approved last month.
The building will be located on the former TFC food store at 223-229 Lewisham High Street near Ladywell. A commercial space will be located at street level.
Developer Skillcrown are hoping to attract a brand such as Travelodge or Premier Inn and believe the site will “attract both tourist visitors to Lewisham, as well as providing temporary accommodation for users, workers, and visitors of University Hospital Lewisham.”
An earlier plan was rejected on appeal before this revised scheme saw the green light.
The London Plan seeks 40,000 additional hotel bedrooms across London by 2036.
