LuLu Group has made a 110 million pounds ($171 million) deal with London-based property developer, Galliard Homes to develop a luxury hotel at the site of the original Scotland Yard Police Station in London. The building served as the original home of the London Metropolitan Police service and was later the British Army’s recruitment center.
The 92,000 sq. ft hotel with 235 guest rooms, restaurants, a library, meeting rooms and an adjoining Victorian townhouse, will be called the Great Scotland Yard Hotel. It will be opened to the public in early 2017.
