Work begins ahead of West India Quay hotel
Exploratory archaeological studies have taken place near West India Quay ahead of construction of a 132-bed hotel.
H2O Urban LLP and Raag Canary Wharf Ltd are behind the proposed development, which will be run as Tune Hotel, described as a "limited service operator" focussing on "high quality provision of essential facilities".
The group began operating a venue in Liverpool Street last year. The site of the proposed development is at Hertsmere Road near West India Quay and was approved by Tower Hamlets Council in May.
H2O Urban is a venture between Bloc and the Canal & River Trust. Staff from the Museum of London were at the site last week.
