History:

Claridge’s hotel has been granted planning permission for a five-floor ‘iceberg’ basement beneath the Art Deco portion of the grade II listed Mayfair building. Westminster Council has given the green light for the deep basement which will house a new swimming pool and spa in the first lower level. A new second basement level will contain an in-house bakery and chocolatier as well staff changing and dining and a kitchen prep area. Dating from 1856, this iconic art-deco luxury hotel is a 3-minute walk from both Bond Street tube station and the shops of Oxford Street. The individually designed rooms have en suite marble bathrooms, and come with free Wi-Fi, TVs and iPod docks, plus dual-voltage outlets. Fresh flowers and evening turndown services are standard, while a butler service is provided in suites. Some suites also have whirlpool baths, terraces and grand pianos. There are 2 bars, including a 1930s cocktail bar, plus a high-end restaurant. Afternoon tea in the art-deco foyer is a destination event. The hotel also has a business centre and a top-floor health club/spa.

Trivia Posted December 12th, 2016

Roof top plant will also be relocated in the new basement levels allowing 40 more rooms and suites to be added to the roof.

Trivia Posted December 12th, 2016

McGee has proposed to dig two access tunnels beneath the existing raft foundation of Claridges. The firm then plans to hand-dig 30m deep shafts for each pile. The 1.8m diameter shafts would use caissons with a bell form to create a wide concrete footing. Each 800mm column would then be constructed within the excavated shaft up to the base of the existing building’s columns above. During the construction, substructures to the existing hotel would be maintained on a system of adjustable jacks at existing raft level, which would be continuously monitored. The hand-dig method avoids the need of piling through the historic listed building fabric and reduces noise and the amount of spoil transported each day through the area.
