Project Progress: Canopy hotel by Hilton, Aldgate London

Construction is well underway and nearing completion of the first Canopy hotel by Hilton in the UK, on this prime site in Aldgate, London.

The redevelopment of the site is an important step in the regeneration and expansion of the core fabric of the City of London eastwards beyond the confines of Aldgate. With a view to re-structuring the fabric of this area due to its inconsistency both physically and socially, a masterplan has been developed which comprises some new construction alongside utilisation of existing buildings, whilst leaving the adjacent bus station unaffected.
