ColladoCollins receives planning consent for redevelopment of Olympia exhibition centre

Olympia exhibition centre opened in 1886 as the largest roofed arena in England at almost an acre in size. Over the years, the venue hosted a wide variety of events for the masses, including motor shows and circus fairs, as its boundaries were expanded to meet demand.

This continual progress continues to the present day with three planning applications submitted by ColladoCollins now approved. The project will see the Olympia exhibition centre (owned by Earls Court & Olympia) receive a 242-bedroom hotel facility, a Grand Hall entrance pavilion and an improved public realm on Olympia Way.

Roy Collado, Partner of ColladoCollins, said: “These exciting plans are the latest phase in the evolution of this important London landmark. Following a sustained period of communication with local planning officers and stakeholder groups, combined with the continual support of Capital & Counties, we’re pleased to have secured consent on this truly compelling scheme.”

More information about the project can be found here.
