Britain's first ever Burger King drive-thru to be transformed in Sutton High Street
The site of the first ever Burger King drive-through is set to be transformed into hotels and shops.
A 103 bedroom hotel as well as retail space on the ground floor has been proposed for 324-340 Sutton High Street by architect Assael.
The public was given the first glimpse of the plans during last week's Sutton Local Committee meeting.
The site has been derelict since Burger King moved out in January 2011.
It comes after a £50m development from LXB was announced for the old gas works and Zurich Building site in November.
Planning approval was granted for the Burger King site in January 2012 for a 103 bedroom hotel, but the current proposals are for a residential and retail scheme.
The new scehme will feature two retail units at ground floor with frontage onto the High Street and 40 residential apartments on the upper floors with a mix of unit sizes from one to three bedrooms.
