Queensbridge House Hotel project

Highway changes

This project (285KB) involves highway changes and public realm improvements to the streets around the hotel site either side of Upper Thames Street to best integrate the development in its surroundings.

Improvements will include:

  • Paving and level changes to integrate the hotel into the surrounding footways and walkways
  • Raised sections of carriageway to accommodate safe servicing for the hotel development
  • Improved accessibility
  • Lighting and wayfinding improvements
  • Introduction of greenery where possible

The Queensbridge House hotel is currently under construction and is anticipated to complete in 2020. The hotel development includes a new section of covered riverside walkway within the building that is being designed and constructed by the developer. The aim is to link this walkway to the existing walkway at Queenhithe to the east and a re-opened section of walkway through Globe View to the west.

The design and construction of this section of riverside walkway are the responsibility of the hotel developer. Design quality has been ensured through the planning process. Materials are in line with the City’s palette of standard high-quality materials.

It is important that the design and timing of these works are coordinated with Queensbridge House Hotel developer. This would enable the City Corporation to achieve its ambition to deliver a fully accessible, continuous and pleasant Thames Path.
