PROPOSALS to develop an aparthotel at a central Glasgow site have been announced.
PMI Developments and Peveril Securities have lodged a proposal of application notice with Glasgow City Council to redevelop the corner of Cambridge Street and Renfrew Street. The existing building has been unoccupied for many years.
The £35million proposal has been designed by Glasgow-based architect studio, HAUS collective, and would offer self-catering apartments designed for longer stays, complete with a kitchen and living area.
The aparthotel would also have 24-hour reception, lounge and café, a gym and a rooftop terrace.
Nigel Jones, director, PMI Developments, said: “Despite Glasgow’s buoyant hotel market there is a lack of quality aparthotels in the city which is growing in popularity across Europe amongst both business and leisure travellers.
“This prominent site with its central location lends itself well to an aparthotel and will be a boost to the ongoing regeneration of Sauchiehall Street.”
A drop-in public consultation event will take place on Tuesday 15 November from 1pm until 6pm at Edward House, 199 Sauchiehall Street, when the proposals will be available to view and the design team will be available to answer questions.
Plans can also be viewed from 15 November at www.streets-uk.com/19-21cambridgestreet.
A planning application is expected to be submitted in the new year following further consultation as designs progress.
