Contractors have just started preparation work on site to build a new hotel and aparthotel at the Gantry development in London.  

The development will include a new 18-storey Curio by Hilton hotel with 285 bedrooms plus a 17-storey Adagio aparthotel with 136 rooms.

The lower levels of the building will be occupied by new bars and restaurants with a new sky-bar on the 18thfloor.

The Gantry development is one component of the Stratford City Masterplan.

The Gantry will be constructed on a vacant plot next to Stratford International Station, between the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Westfield shopping centre and East Village.

Construction is expected to start on site early 2018. The project is scheduled for completion in early 2020.
