Glasgow approves plans for 300-bed Renfield Street hotel
McAleer & Rushe has secured planning permission to develop a 12-storey hotel in Glasgow city centre.
The 300-bed 4 star hotel on Renfrew Street will be the first Maldron Hotel for hotel operator Dalata Hotel Group in Scotland.
It forms part of a wider masterplan by McAleer & Rushe to include c. 100,000 sq.ft of Grade A offices.
The Northern Ireland-based developer and contractor will also deliver a Maldron Hotel in Birmingham. Combined, the two hotels will deliver a total of 630 bedrooms and represent an investment of c. £85 million.
McAleer & Rushe Contracts UK Ltd is scheduled to commence construction on both hotels this summer, with practical completion anticipated within two years.
Stephen Surphlis, property director at McAleer & Rushe, said: “The development of the two new Maldron Hotels are very exciting initiatives for both cities with the projects strategically located, catering for both business and leisure users.
“Glasgow has one of the fastest growing economies in the UK and Birmingham continues to secure a range of inward investment projects, with the opening of the HS2 high speed rail network in 2026.
“We’ve been encouraged by the support shown by both local authorities in processing the applications in a professional and timely manner allowing construction works to commence in the coming months and we look forward to working with in partnership with Dalata once again.”
