Glasgow approves plans for 12-storey city centre hotel
Plans for a 12-storey hotel have been given the green light by Glasgow City Council.
Designed by Urban Innovations and to be delivered by McAleer & Rushe, the 165-bed development will be situated on land at the junction of Old Wynd Street and Osborne Street which is currently being used as a car park.
Hotel developer Dominvs Group bought the site last year for a price in excess of £3 million.
A document submitted with the application stated: “It is the intention to redevelop the site integrating it sympathetically to the existing built form whilst creating an architectural statement that addresses the streetscape and adds vibrancy and life back to this area of the city.”
It continued: “In designing this building we have been careful to respond to and respect the adjacent historic buildings along Osborne Street.
“The proposed scheme infills the vacant site that fronts onto Old Wynd and Osborne Street.
“Dominvs Project Company 12 Ltd are committed to the regeneration of this site and providing long-term economic stimulus and activity to the area.”
A hotel operator is already on board for the venture but it is not identified in the planning application.
