BUDGET Holiday Accommodation Plan For Vacant Premises

20 January, 2022 | News

PLANNERS are being asked to approve conversion of a former warehouse in central Glasgow into a travel hostel.

Apexx Investments Ltd want to turn parts of the building in Warroch Street into a 66-bedspace facility, to be known as Finnieston Hostel.

Major mixed-use, residential-led development has been approved for surrounding vacant land between the Clydeside Expressway and the Broomielaw.

A statement submitted with the planning application explains: “It will be a good quality offering with a contemporary, lean and competitive business model based on successful operations across the UK.

“The bespoke sleeping accommodation will be supported by ensuite shower and WC facilities, with on-site storage, a laundrette, a small wellness sauna suite, and self-service basic food services.”

It would be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with controlled entry and security fobs. There would be 10 staff, including part-time posts.

Improvements would be made to the exterior of the building. The last known use was as a day nursery and office.

Open ground to the east has been leased from the council for amenity use by the applicant.

The proposal is pending consideration by city officials.
