The Tesco Garden Centre closed in September 2011 and has been boarded up for the last eight years.
There is now a planning application to turn in into an 86 bedroom hotel with associated parking, infrastructure and landscaping.
It will be located close to the Hilton Garden Hotel and Premier Inn just off the A34 Marcham Interchange, and within easy reach of Oxford, and Abingdon, and a number of important business and science parks.
The design is not going to win any architecture awards for Abingdon. Traffic and flooding could be issues.
