London’s South Bank to get new luxury hotel by 2010

Westminster Bridge Park PlazaThe County Hall Island Block – a detested London eyesore nearly Waterloo station and named Britain’s 11th ugliest building in a recent Channel 4 programme  – is at last to be knocked down.   It will make way for a 14-storey, £300m luxury hotel: the Westminster Bridge Park Plaza. The new hotel will offer views  towards Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament but is not expected to be completed until 2010. Please note: the  illustration is an artist’s impression of how the new hotel will look, not a photograph of the current building!
