KOP Properties are the owners of 10 Trinity Square in London and they have just been granted planning permission to develop it. They will be working together with the Reignwood Group in transforming the Grade II listed building.
They will be putting in 41 luxury services residences as well as a 120 room hotel, two bars, a restaurant, spa and members club. They have not yet decided who will be designing the residences, but they have taken on the David Collins Studio for the hotel, bar and members club. They will be using LTW Designworks for the spa design. Leny Suparman the CEO of KOP Properties explained that they are excited to be turning the iconic building in to a destination address in London.
The building was designed 100 years ago by Sir Edwin Cooper and opened as the Port of London Authority headquarters in 1922. It is an iconic building in London and was of national importance when it was built. Transforming it to a fine hotel will enable some of the original plan to be restored for the first time since it was destroyed in the blitz. It will still be an elegant building but combined with modern design and luxury. There will now be a mix of different sized apartments, including penthouses in the building. The hotel will be on the ground to third levels and there will be 8 suites and 120 rooms. The residents will have access to the fitness centre, spa, concierge and members club.
