A PIZZA restaurant operator has applied to open a second Glasgow City Centre eatery — before even launching its first.
Project Pizza has lodged plans to turn an empty shop unit in Trongate — between the McDonald’s and Tesco outlets — into a two-floor restaurant.
The ground floor would have seating for 50 and there would be space for a further 136 people upstairs. Opening hours would be 8am to midnight, seven days a week.
A statement by consultants Iceni, submitted to planners on behalf of Project Pizza’s, argues: “The proposal will have a positive impact on the vitality and viability of this part of Trongate and the wider City Centre, and will see the reuse of a vacant unit.”
Project Pizza was given permission to open its first Glasgow restaurant in an empty shop at the corner of Renfield Street at Renfield Lane earlier this month.
The company currently has outlets in Reading and Dundee.
