THE latest plans for a hotel development at a prominent gap site between historic Glasgow City Centre buildings have been revealed.
Developer HMH One Clyde has applied for planning permission for the £18million proposal which involves a large new-build element and conversion of B-listed premises at Broomielaw and Oswald Street.
Neil Haining, director of Mosaic, said: “The height of the proposed design is five storeys, with upper floors articulated to form enlarged feature dormers referencing those of Oswald Chambers.
“This contemporary interpretation of the traditional roofscape creates interest at high level and preserves the views of domes to the adjacent Clydeport building.”
Alec Knowles, director at HMH One Clyde, said: “There are many vacant plots and brownfield sites along the Clyde. Such sites must be reclaimed as viable pieces of urban fabric to prevent unnecessary expansion and achieve Glasgow’s long-term aspirations for a high-quality built environment.
“Redevelopment of this prominent corner site will fill a long vacant brownfield gap and contribute to the revitalisation of the Clyde waterfront.
“Glasgow is anticipating a rise in demand for dedicated short-stay accommodation with increased activity forecast in both the tourism/ leisure and business conferencing sectors, which this development will directly address.”
