The Trafalgar Hotel, Trafalgar Square, London SW1
This freehold of this high profile site, The Crown Estate, was seeking a developer to undertake a major scheme on this listed building. This opportunity was won on a ‘best scheme, best bid’ basis, whilst the site was marketed as an office scheme. The Trevor Osborne Property Group identified the limitations of the building’s potential as an office conversion and correctly saw its unique credentials for a hotel. The property was completed in 2002 in conjunction with a long term investment partner and is let to Hilton plc (136 beds) plus bar and two destination restaurants. The Company’s investment in the completed project was sold to its investment partner in 2006.
