art’otel has signed a hotel management agreement with Battersea Power Station Development Company (BPSDC) to open a new luxury lifestyle hotel in 2019.
art’otel London Battersea Power Station will be developed by Battersea Power Station and managed by art’otel’s parent firm PPHE Hotel Group.
PPHE Hotel Group president Boris Ivesha said: “The Battersea Power Station Development will transform London’s skyline creating a new destination and hub for local communities, visitors and residents.
“As a company we take pride in opening hotels, restaurants and bars in areas which are embarking on new urban and community journeys and the Battersea Power Station project is a spectacular example of this.”
Designed by Foster + Partners, the hotel will feature 160 bedrooms and an outdoor rooftop pool and bar.
In addition, the property will offer a restaurant and double height bar with wraparound views across the power station and London skyline, the company stated.
Guests will also benefit from a public gallery, which will be a multi-purpose creative space that provides a rotating calendar of exhibitions, as well as cultural and artistic events.
BPSDC CEO Rob Tincknell said: “We are incredibly excited to be announcing this important transaction and for it to be with such an innovative hotel company.
“The selection process to find the right brand and operator was a very competitive and thorough one, involving the leading hotel brands from around the world.”
art’otel will be part of phase three of the Battersea Power Station development that includes more than 1,300 residential homes and a new pedestrian high street with shops and restaurants known as The Electric Boulevard.
