Plans to revive an old hotel at St Pancras station in London have been given the go-ahead.
Eurostar services will come to St Pancras in 2007
Camden Council approved the £100m project, which will turn the Grade I listed former Midland Grand Hotel into a luxury hotel and flats.
A council spokeswoman confirmed the authority's planning committee supported the scheme.
Plans include 68 private flats, costing up to £1.5m each, and a 245-room hotel to be run by the Marriott chain.
The aim is to restore the St Pancras Chambers' grand staircase, dining rooms and several other main rooms, and forms part of the redevelopment of the station in readiness for Eurostar services to begin running in 2007.
The Midland Grand Hotel was built between 1868 and 1876, but was closed to guests in 1935.
Sir John Betjeman spearheaded a public campaign to stop British Rail from demolishing the building in the 1960s.
