William Cheng (B2 1975-80)

William Cheng (B2 1975-80), Chairman of Magnificent Hotels, has successfully won a bid to purchase a landmark London building, the Wood Street Police Station.

William attributes part of his successful bid to his knowledge and appreciation of neoclassical architecture that he gained whilst at Marlborough.

“I am so delighted to have narrowly won the bid to convert this magnificent police HQ building into a grand heritage hotel.  I believe the vital difference was that I presented myself to the City Corporation’s project selection committee as someone with a passion for neoclassical architecture heritage.”
