Look of luxury: new hotel revealed

Dalstonhotel

Almost opposite the still-unopened new library, architecture to match it.


Here is an architect’s drawing of the upscale hotel proposed for the waste-ground car park at 25-27 Dalston Lane, opposite the Wholsum health-food snackery.

The plan, for site owner Landview Homes Ltd, envisages 70 rooms, all appointed to a high standard. The window sizes shown in the planning application suggest that the project does not rate the view highly.
A hotel operator is being sought.

The Olympics and the East London Line effects have lured other developers. As well as the Avo boutique hotel, which is struggling to open on the date intended, Valentine’s Day 14 Feb 2011, six one-bedroom flats are nearing completion above shops near the railway bridge at 87-91 Dalston Lane, Dalston, London E8 2NG.

Behind the scaffolding, more homes

The project’s V. Mittal, a doctor-turned-developer, told Loving Dalston that he had gone to great lengths to find materials that fitted the prevailing local architecture, in particular dormer windows that met modern standards yet had a Victorian style.

He has similar aims for the retail premises below, a contrast to the shabbiness of the last few decades.

Dr Mittal said that if circumstances suggested it, he would consider hotel-style tenancies.

Luxury inn for Dalston Lane and E8 to get its own boutique hotel; press the preceding hyperlinks.

    As you will have noticed http://www.hackney.gov.uk/planning.htm has not been working well for months. I cannot again spend hours looking for a usable URL for this development so if you have it to hand can you be even more helpful by posting it as a comment or emailing it to me via David.Altheer@gmail.com to help other readers? As for Barratt’s Dalston Square, I’d go further and say it could be situated in any city in the world.

    This is a great improvement on what was proposed for the site before. The facades appear to be in brickwork and the windows are slender but full-height, similar to windows in the surrounding Dalston terraces.

    The hyperlink above linking to the planning application is incorrect – it’s showing the old 2002 proposal. The 2010 version looks much more relevant to Dalston, unlike the huge Dalston Square development across the street which could be situated anywhere in London.
