DEVELOPER Withdraws Plan To Turn Empty City Centre Store Into Hotel

How the hotel was expected to look

AN application seeking to turn a former Glasgow City Centre department store into a hotel has been withdrawn

Manor Property Group lodged its proposal for the empty Dunnes Stores building in Sauchiehall Street at Cambridge Street in August last year.

A 112-room budget boutique Qtel hotel with restaurant was proposed.

The £12million plan involved a rooftop extension to provide extra space for bedrooms.

Glasgow’s planning portal now lists the application as withdrawn.

No explanation is given for the change.

Drawings and visualisations for the development were submitted as recently as October.

Mark Bailey, director of Manor Property Group, said at the time of the application being made: “The plans for our first Qtel-branded hotel, on Glasgow’s Sauchiehall Street, will see this art deco building given a new lease of life, deliver a 112-bedroom hotel, all-day café bar and restaurant and create 50 full time jobs.”
