April 30, 2019
BridgeStreet announces today that it secured the operations of the newest apart-hotel extended stay offering Stow-Away Waterloo in London’s revitalised and fast-regenerating neighbourhood around Waterloo. Developed by a Joint Venture between Stow Projects and Ciel Capital and managed by BridgeStreet, Stow-Away Waterloo is a uniquely designed apart-hotel destined for comfortable short and extended stay living. Built using 26 repurposed shipping containers offering space of over 18m², Stow-Away Waterloo has participated in one of the most environmentally-conscious, innovative, and affordable hospitality projects in London. Its design was recognised at the Serviced Apartment Awards 2019 as the winner of Best Architecture or External Design and Best Property 1-20 Units.
Stow-Away Waterloo is a stone’s throw from Waterloo station and centrally located to everything the city has to offer, including one of London’s oldest and most eclectic market streets, Lower Marsh. “There is a real sense of community here; just steps from your Stow-Away door is a lively market with amazing food from around the world being prepared and barrows selling fresh food,” said Brian Proctor, Chief Operating Officer of BridgeStreet. “We are pleased to offer such a unique and environmentally-friendly project that reflects the character and energy of the Waterloo area.”
