Ace Investments has secured planning consent for an 88-bedroom hotel in north London.
The four-storey, contemporary hotel is designed to be a three or four-star facility with basement parking for 56 cars. The 0.5 acre former Burger King site at Apex Corner, is currently vacant.
Helen Greenhalgh, director at Indigo Planning, which advised on the application, said: “The hotel has been designed as a mid-range business hotel to capitalise on the site’s location on the outskirts of the capital, close to the M1 and the A1.
“The site raised a number of challenges, including addressing the relationship with houses to the rear, as well as the design expectations of the council.”
She added: “Ace Investments is currently in the process of finalising an operator, with work expected to start on site later this year.”
The local planning authority was the London Borough of Barnet.
