PERMISSION is being sought to convert a Shawlands hotel into flat, with new apartments in its grounds.
The proposal for The Ivory on Camphill Avenue at Langside Avenue also includes the current bar/restaurant being turned into a smaller coffee shop/cafe.
The application seeks consent to the principle of residential use; if approved by Glasgow City Council, detailed plans would need to be drawn up for submission.
A design statement indicates that seven flats could be created in the hotel building.
A block with around nine new-build flats would be developed in the car park.
The statement concludes: “The Ivory Hotel site provides an excellent opportunity for a high quality and sensitively designed residential development and the long overdue infill of an existing gap site in this established popular residential part of Glasgow’s Southside.
“Retention of a coffee shop will ensure continued hospitality for the local community and users of Queen’s Park whilst retaining employment.”
An application was made earlier this year proposing to extend the hotel. Planners have not given a verdict on that yet.
