PLANNERS have approved a development of 70 apartments for short-term let in Glasgow City Centre.
The building on West Regent Street at West Campbell Street, will also have a ground floor restaurant area, gym, lounge areas, and a roof terrace bar.
The development includes conversion of an adjacent building previously used as offices.
The property will be operated by Cheval Collection and is due to open next year.
The vacant site was formerly occupied by a rundown B-listed premises built in 1830.
Simon Mullen, managing director at developer 141WRS, said: “Cheval Collection’s decades of experience in serviced apartments made it the obvious choice for this development, which we hope will reinvigorate this corner of the city centre.
“We expect the Cheval Maison property in Glasgow to attract international guests and appeal to the local community with restaurants on the ground floor and roof terrace.”
The site will have 27 standard studios, 15 large studios, 23 one-bedroom apartments and five two-bedroom apartments.
Mohammed S Alawadhi, managing director, Cheval Collection, said: “We are thrilled to be working with 141WRS on this project in a city we love.
“After 40 years of operating serviced apartments, we have gained the knowledge which delivers results for owners, loyalty from guests and qualifies us for our next phase of expansion.
“Being also owners means that we have learned to be flexible and treat each site as unique, multi-purpose accommodation where guests can live their lives, whether travelling for business or leisure.”
