14.12.20 | Seasons Greetings & Best Wishes for the New Year

We trust you are safe and well during what has been a most challenging year for us all.

The Peninsula London has almost completed its third year of construction and has continued to make visibly good progress.

Façade works are complete externally to level 9 and the roof has been made weathertight. Internally, the hotel guest room, residential apartment, and the rooftop restaurant fit-outs are continuing and going well.

With the constraints on construction during the lockdown periods, the opening of the hotel will likely be in 2022 when the hotel will provide 190 rooms along with a spa, shops, bars, restaurants and a ballroom, showcasing the best of British culture, art and cuisine, while honouring the group’s Asian heritage.

The Peninsula has already committed to supporting the Belgravia Awards in January and is seeking to collaborate with local artisans and businesses to help curate experiences. In the New Year we will continue to engage with neighbours and local representative construction liasion group members regarding the progress on site.

Season’s Greetings to you all, and very best wishes for the New Year from all of us in the Peninsula London team.

20.04.20 | Re-commencing of on-site works

On Monday 20 April, 2020, limited on-site work at The Peninsula London project site recommenced. A small mobilisation crew have been on site to undertake limited preparation works, in line with government advice.

We plan to commence a phased re-opening of the site from Monday 4 May. The site work will be scaled up once we have tested the appropriate social distancing measures. Our priority is the safety and security of our employees, contractors and vendors.

We will keep all our stakeholders informed on developments as soon as possible. For any questions, please contact


As of 25 March, 2020, the management of The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited, owner and operator of The Peninsula Hotels, in agreement with and supported by Prime Development and Sir Robert McAlpine, made the decision to temporarily suspend on-site work at The Peninsula London project site due to public health concerns over the COVID-19 coronavirus.

The safety and security of our employees, contractors and vendors remains our highest priority and unfortunately, social distancing on construction sites is difficult to achieve. We believe this is the right and responsible action to take with regards to our civic duty.

All work on the site will cease until further notice, with the exception of essential roles such as security who will adhere to appropriate levels of social distancing. Offsite work and design will continue as planned.

We will keep all our stakeholders informed when we are able to get back to work as soon as possible. For any questions, please contact

02.07.19 | Topping Out Celebrations

The Peninsula London recently celebrated a major milestone, as the project moves closer to completion in 2021. On 19 June, the Rt Worshipful The Lord Mayor of Westminster Councillor Ruth Bush and other VIPs were invited to witness the topping out of the first core of the building and a time capsule ceremony, hosted by HSH Chairman The Honourable Sir Michael Kadoorie.

Sir Michael noted that on a site which had taken The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels thirty years to find, it is envisioned that The Peninsula London will become a much-loved part of the local community and recognised as one of the finest hotels in the world.

A short video documenting the celebration is available to view below.
