APPROVAL is being sought for a 19-storey aparthotel near Sauchiehall Street.
PMI Developments have applied for planning permission to redevelop 19-21 Cambridge Street.
The aparthotel would have 161 units — 55 small studios, 75 large studios and 31 with one bedroom .
There would be external amenity space on level six.
The existing building, on the corner with Renfrew Street, has been empty for many years.
A coffee shop and workspace area would be created on the ground floor.
The developers have stated: “Given the site’s prominent location within the city centre, and its location within a key strategic economic area, we believe there is justification for demolition, and opportunity for a building of scale that promotes a use type that will support the economy of the city and its strong tourist industry.”
The application is pending assessment by Glasgow City planners.
