Malmaison to convert the original Scotland Yard headquarters into a hotel

The Malmaison hotel group is considering a deal to buy the original Scotland Yard headquarters in London, which is being transformed into a luxury hotel.

The hotel will be called the Great Scotland Yard, with Mailmaison paying an estimated $324 million. Galliard Homes, the London-based development group which owns the site, expects to complete the conversion in 2016.

Malmaison's chain of 13 hotels located in cities such as Oxford, London and Birmingham, is owned by the Denver-based private equity firm, KSL, which bought it out of administration in March last year. Plans for the seven-floor building include 235 bedrooms, a VIP suite, a vast ballroom and a restaurant.
