REVISED plans are being developed for a prominent Glasgow City Centre corner plot which had been lined up for a hotel.
The 14-storey block proposed for the site of Nile House, at the corner of West Nile Street and Bath Street, would instead incorporate an aparthotel, student accommodation and co-working spaces.
The current building, which would be demolished, formerly housed a Blue Lagoon chippy, O Sole Mio restaurant and the Iron Horse Bar.
Planning permission was granted in June last year for a 15-storey hotel.
A statement on a pre-application consultation website explains: “The design concept for Nile House involves the careful redevelopment of the site and addition of new upper floors which could provide co-working space, student accommodation, aparthotel rooms or a combination of these uses.
“The proposals will deliver a vibrant mixed development of scale on this prominent corner site in the heart of Glasgow’s City Centre.”
It follows a change of heart over another approved hotel development on St Vincent Street at Pitt Street, where Artisan Real Estate are now proposing residential serviced living.
