Rogue City Hotel Group moves forward with £15m projects

Construction is set to move forward on two design-led Rogue City Hotel Group projects worth a combined £15m.

The projects will be carried out by property development company Henley Homes, following a pause in activity due to the pandemic.  

Construction has now begun on the Grade-II listed Hobson House in Cambridge. The site was formerly the first police station in the city, and will now become a 56-suite hotel. The site will also feature an atrium-style restaurant and meeting rooms, to be occupied by Rogue City Hotels, with completion expected in Q3 2022.

Construction is also underway at a Glasgow-based boutique hotel which will be known as The Wellington. 

The site was a B-listed 1800s former tribunal court, and the new hotel will feature a mix of 98 boutique hotel rooms and serviced apartments, “sympathetically restored with changes to its historic facade kept to a minimum”. Its completion is expected in Q2 2022.

Aaron Usmani, construction director at Henley Homes Group, said: “The Henley Group’s unique offering, which spans in-house design, construction, development and operation puts us in an exceptionally strong position, whether delivering our own projects or for external clients. 

“Our breadth of sector expertise, from residential to hospitality, means we are also resilient and well-positioned to weather any shifting market conditions.”

Nassar Khalil, director of Hotels and Leisure at Henley Homes and CEO of Rogue City Hotel Group added: “These two projects exemplify what we stand for, with a focus on outstanding design, technology, quality and attention to detail. 

“Both properties will breathe new life into iconic historical buildings, transforming them into design-led luxury accommodation with exceptional service, comfort and convenience curating a special relationship with local communities. It’s these values that define a Rogue City Hotel.”
