Situated half-way between Canary Wharf and the West End, a 10-minute walk from Brick Lane and Spitalfields Market.

 

Whilst the make-up of the 370 bedrooms are identical to those in the chain’s eight other hotels, and the living rooms are furnished with similar pieces from Vitra, Verner Panton, Charles and Ray Eames and Jean Prouvé, the new London hotel includes several innovations. At the entrance is the first coffeeM bar.

This was the first ever project where Avonline Flooring fitted external bamboo decking to terraces and atrium’s also incorporating access points for the abseil window cleaners. Bamboo was also fitted throughout the building to all corridors and lift lobbies. A one off printed carpet was commissioned by citizenM, that featured the view of the London skyline as viewed from the upper floors of the hotel. The carper was manufactured by carpet specialists Halbmond.

The builder for the project was Balfour Beatty. Traditional construction methods were used to construct the basement and ground floor; modular methods were introduced to levels one to eight. This included hotel rooms formed by double length pods with integral corridor sections. These were constructed off site and craned into place by tower cranes, these methods were used to reduce on site construction times.
