Milieu Architects gain full planning consent for £18million luxury hotel and office 

A proposal to build an exclusive 150-key hotel and offices within the site of existing Health & Members Club in Rochford has been approved. The five-storey hotel is designed to provide high quality accommodation, in time for the London Olympics in 2012.

Peter Lunter, the Project Architect, said: “There is a dire need for a quality four star plus, something we just do not have at the moment. There are some big players such as RBS and KeyMed often visited by high status individuals and investors. There is nowhere for them to stay, so the proposal perfectly fits with existing market demand.”

Copthorne Millennium, which owns prestigious hotels such as Kensington, Mayfair and Knightsbridge, will operate the development. The hotel will boast executive suites on the top floor, a restaurant open to the public, a ballroom function room for 400 guests and an extensive business suite with a conference center and exhibition space. The four-storey office buildings will provide 20,000 sq ft of space as well as featuring courtyards for staff to use. There will be also parking places built nearby, landscaped areas and a lake.

It is expected a total cost will range somewhere between £16million to £18million. The proposed development creates 220 jobs. Rochford District Council has approved the plans and the construction will officially begin during spring next year, with the complex to be ready for opening by mid 2011.
