The Anonymous Widower

Crossrail Gets A Convenient Hotel

This article on The Urban Developer is entitled London’s Newest Skyscraper Gets Green Light.

This is the first two paragraphs.

London’s Paddington will soon be home to a new 20-storey hotel tower, dubbed The Gateway Building, after planning permission was granted by Westminster council planners.

The Sheldon Square site will house the 113-metre-high hotel designed by architects Carmody Groarke for developer British Land. The hotel will provide access to the area’s new Crossrail station, with the third basement level expected to provide access to the Elizabeth Line — connecting Reading with London and Heathrow.

As they say, location is everything!

  • Crossrail will whisk you to and from Heathrow.
  • There’s not many hotels with direct access to the station underneath.
  • For the businessman who has everything, Bond Street is only one stop away for the trophy wife to spend your hard-earned money.
  • The City and Canary Wharf are just a few stops further.

I doubt the hotel will be a Premier Inn.

How many other skyscraper hotels will sprout up along Crossrail?

Each one will be another nail in the coffin of Heathrow Express.
