AN apart-hotel development is being lined up to fill a prominent gap site between historic Glasgow City Centre buildings.
The proposal by developer HMH One Clyde Ltd for 5 to 9 Oswald Street/ 54 to 64 Broomielaw includes a large new-build element and conversion of B-listed premises.
The developer states: “The proposed development seeks to sensitively convert the Category B Listed building [on the corner of Broomielaw and Oswald Street]
“We have set the new building heights at six stories to tie into the adjacent buildings to the west and north.
“The hotel plan has the ground floor main entrance off The Broomielaw, leading to front-of-house and back-of-house facilities which are centred on a central circulation zone which gives access to the bedrooms on the upper floors.
“The bedrooms are arranged along The Broomielaw and Oswald Street and, on the upper levels, are set back from the Broomielaw to allow views of the adjacent dome on the Clydeport Building [to the west].”
Licensed premises, restaurant and meeting room facilities are included in the plan.
It is intended that an application for full planning permission and listed building consent would be submitted to Glasgow City Council later this year.
