Sir Cliff Richard was on hand to wield a shovel for the official ground-breaking ceremony performed by the Arora Group for two new hotels at Heathrow Terminal 4. The project is set to become the largest hotel development at the airport.
The event was attended by key stakeholders from the Arora Group, project partner Whitebridge Hospitality, an LJ Group company, and InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), as well as executives from the airport.
It marked the beginning of Arora Group’s construction of a new dual-brand Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn Express, which will take Arora Group’s hotel portfolio in the UK to nine.
The new hotels are being built by Grove Developments, the construction division of the Arora Group, and will operate under a franchise agreement with IHG managed by another group division, Arora Hotels.
Group founder and chairman Surinder Arora said at the ceremony: “I am delighted to be here today to mark the official commencement of construction of our two new hotels.
“Between them, they will expand the footprint of the Arora Group at London Heathrow Airport from 1,434 bedrooms to 2,184 across five properties.”
