Offering the signature Pan Pacific gracious hospitality, with a touch of Asian resourcefulness, Pan Pacific London is set to open in Spring 2021, just across from Liverpool Street Station, the historic and ever-evolving business district with little in the way of luxury hotels.
Having identified the Square Mile’s importance as a creative, business and technology hub - no longer a corridor between the City and the East - the 237-room hotel is located in One Bishopsgate Plaza, London’s new landmark tower, that combines this new hospitality offering with 160 private residences. The combination of treasured nearby London landmarks and the profusion of new and vibrant entertainment are all just a few minutes’ walk away.
Under the vision of world famous Yabu Pushelberg – the firm behind London’s most desirable address, No.1 Grosvenor Square – and in collaboration with architects PLP, Pan Pacific London is a spectacular 43-storey bronze tower consisting of private residences, a luxury hotel and a public plaza animated by One Devonshire House, a separate space and mix of retail offerings, a destination restaurant and bar. The hotel has already been awarded various accolades by the International Property Awards for its architecture, design and mixed-use development, a whole year before opening.
Complementing the public gardens strewn along the façade, Pan Pacific London’s rooms and suites are veritable urban retreats, emblematic of modern 21st century luxury. Unmatched in scale and quality by any existing hotels in the area, the hotel’s Signature Suite, perched on the 19th floor is the epitome of luxury with spectacular views to city landmark, The Gherkin.
The property represents a number of firsts for London; including a floor dedicated to guest well-being incorporating a dramatic 18-meter infinity pool with spectacular cityscape view; more landscaped outdoor space than any other luxury hotel in the area, with gardens integrated into the design of the restaurants and recreational facilities; and meeting and function spaces which will total almost 341ft. A design marvel in itself is the entrance to the ballroom, occupying a glass pavilion in the public plaza, housing an elevator to take guests down to the events space – the first ballroom in the square mile of 476 sqm, featuring two combinable areas suiting any type of event.
On speaking about the design of the hotel, Glenn Pushelberg comments: “As designers, our aim is to create environments that make people pause and have a sensory experience. The subtleties of connected details and sympathetic use of materials and motifs throughout the hotel help to connect spaces and weave a narrative.”
George Yabu continues: “With this project, we were tasked with creating a bold, modern hotel that honours the design diversity of the city, whilst weaving in the brand’s Asian influence. We wanted to set a new trend for luxury, a fusion of south east Asian design with British sensibilities. It is at the hotel’s pinnacle that this balance provides a truly unique design standpoint that blends seamlessly. “
The 237 rooms, destination restaurants and bar and provision of top-quality meetings and events spaces together with the other public functions of the hotel will support the City’s function as a centre for international business.
One Bishopsgate Plaza is the first tower development in the City of London to harmoniously fuse private apartments with a luxury hotel. The landmark address combines Pan Pacific London with 160 private apartments (The Sky Residences) located from level 21 – 41.
