Leeu Collection signs for first property in London Carrie Wicks, cheif executive, Leeu Collection, celebrates the new property

Leeu Collection has acquired its first London property, following an extensive search to find the perfect opportunity in the city.

It is now the proud owner of 55 Newman Street, a former office building with detailed planning consent to create a 100-bedroom luxury hotel, in the heart of fashionable Fitzrovia in the West End.

The property is due to open in 2019.

Carrie Wicks, chief executive, Leeu Collection, said: “The purchase of a London property is a very exciting development for Leeu Collection, as it marks the first acquisition for the group in a major city, but it will certainly not be the last.

“Leeu Collection continues to seek hotel opportunities in key locations around the world that reflect the Leeu ethos of creating unrivalled escapes for discerning guests.”

Extending beyond the offering of luxury accommodation, Analjit Singh (or BAS as he is affectionately known) is a partner in award-winning Mullineux & Leeu Family Wines.
