Romulus has submitted plans for a major refurbishment of 3 Shortlands, the central Hammersmith office building.
3 Shortlands, currently home to Hammersmith & Fulham Council while their town hall is refurbished, would be expanded and reclad under the plans, adding 110,000 sq ft of office space, a 240-room, Accor Adagio-operated hotel, as well as retail space, and an arts and craft hub to the existing 181,000 sq ft building.
The additional offices would be operated by Romulus’s co-working brand, Huddle, which is already in occupation in the curtrent building. Other tenants include Love Holiday, Formula E, Bullion Vault and Jac Travel.
The plans, designed by Fletcher Priest, would be delivered in two phases between now and 2027.
Construction work could start on the new hotel in early 2021 if consent is granted.
