A full planning application has been submitted to Cherwell District Council for a new 101-bed Premier Inn hotel and 150-cover Beefeater restaurant which will be built at the 22-acre Oxford Technology Park on Langford Lane, opposite the airport.
The Premier Inn hotel and Beefeater Restaurant will provide over 50 year-round jobs, as well as accommodation and dining amenities on the Park itself where infrastructure work began in the summer.
The Oxford Technology Park will be capable of creating 4,000 jobs within the 440,000 sq ft of hi-tech, laboratory and office space designed for science and technology businesses locating in the north Oxford technology cluster.
The Park is being developed by Hill Street Holdings, with Bidwells and Benedicts appointed as marketing agents.
“It is important for a technology Park to have a campus-style environment,” commented David Williams, partner at Bidwells. “A large proportion of the businesses coming to the Park will need to accommodate colleagues and customers from overseas, making the hotel a convenient and valuable asset.”
The hotel and restaurant are due to open in early 2019, with favourable planning approval, and would be constructed alongside the first business units during 2018.
