St James's Park Station building at 55 Broadway is a mixed-use development in St James's, London SW1.

The Grade I listed building is being converted into a hotel designed by EPR Architects (The Ned, Old War Office, Great Scotland Yard). The entire building will be retained along with its historic architectural features.

The new hotel will provide:
- Guest bedrooms and suites
- Restaurants
- Bars
- Retail units
- Meeting rooms
- Event spaces
- Gym and spa.

The premium hotel rooms are located within 55 Broadway from the 2nd to the 9th floors, while smaller rooms are located within 100 Petty France and Wing Over Station.

Meeting Spaces & Conference Suites
The 1st floor are converted to a series of informal and formal meeting spaces and conference suites, which are accessible to hotel guests, visitors and the public.

A spa area is introduced at the ground floor and basement level providing additional amenity for guests, local residents and workers.

The ground floor is for a series of restaurants and retail units, that are accessible to the public.

The terraces on the 10th-floor are sensitively enhanced with additional landscaping and planting in order to provide hospitable space for access by guests, residents and visitors to these historically significant spaces with close up views of the ‘Four Winds’ sculptures for the first time.

The main public access point to the hotel is on the corner of Broadway. Secondary access is located on Petty France.


The existing 14-storey ‘cruciform’ plan building was designed by Charles Holden and built between 1927 and 1929. 55 Broadway has been London Underground's iconic Headquarters for over 80 years and is situated above St James's Park Tube station. The building was listed Grade II in 1970 and upgraded to Grade I in 2011 by English Heritage on account of its outstanding national historic and architectural interest (list entry no. 1219790).

2020 May - Planning consent from Westminster Council for: Conversion of buildings for use as hotel (Class C1) with ancillary flexible retail, leisure/spa, restaurant or bar use and other associated facilities; use of 10th floor roof terraces; internal and external alterations including creation of new service bay off St Ermin's Hill, reconfiguration of entrances/exits to St James's Park Underground Station and rooftop plant. Architect: EPR Architects. Developer: Blue Orchid (St. James) Limited. Ref. no. 19/09813/FULL.

2019 - The Broadway Complex was sold by TfL to Integrity International Group owned wholly by Blue Orchid (St. James) Limited in 2019 on a 150 year lease.

Transport for London (TfL) initially appointed TateHindle as the architect to prepare the planning proposals for the redevelopment of its historic London Underground Headquarters, 55 Broadway.

In August 2013, TfL launched a competitive tender for architects to submit their proposals for the future of the building. During the tender process, TfL considered every potential option for the building with office, hotel and residential uses all being evaluated.
After detailed analysis the conclusion was reached that a residential-led development would deliver the best value for fare and taxpayers and would also be the most suitable option to maintain the heritage of the Grade I listed building.

The building continued to be used as an office for TfL staff with plans for staff to remain there until 2015.

2014 - Planning permission for: Change of use of 55 Broadway on part first to thirteenth floors from offices to private residential (77 units) including extensions at tenth-floor level; use of part first floor as B1 offices and reconfiguration of ground floor retail. Part demolition and redevelopment of 100 Petty France and Wing Over Station to provide affordable residential accommodation (35 units) and associated car parking (43 spaces). Ref. No: 14/10496/FULL
