ART and events venue SWG3 has started public consultation over plans for a multi-storey hotel.
The 139-bedroom development would be on vacant land in Yorkhill, at the corner of Sandyford Street, Kelvinhaugh Street and Eastvale Place.
It would include a three-bedroom duplex penthouse with terrace, two restaurants, two bars and roof terrace, co-working spaces, meeting and private dining rooms and a gym and movement studio.
The consultation website states: “The site on the corner of Eastvale Place and Sandyford Street currently lies derelict and unused. Its location can be used as a strategic point to create an enhanced gateway to the current extents of the SWG3 campus.
“As a vista from all three arrival points, it will create a strong connection between the ground floor, the existing railway arches and the enhanced public realm to welcome all visitors and work as a landmark building for SWG3.”
It continues: “The emerging proposal incorporates three stacked volumes expressing the different functions of the building and creating a distinctive and positive addition to the city’s wider skyline.
“The lobby and ground floor bar is the centrepiece and gateway to this new hotel concept. As a dynamic space in itself, including a three-storey central atrium, it will showcase contemporary art and design whilst creating a place for guests, neighbours and visitors to meet and mingle.
“The dedicated workspace and wellness floors will bring an array of artists, visitors, music and art lovers together to accommodate the personal and the professional sides of their daily needs.
“With a thoughtfully designed range of flexible spaces and break-out areas, the stay packages, the varied programme of events and performances, will reinvigorate the energy of the neighborhood further and will offer new destination bar and restaurant facilities along with its enviable outdoor terrace.
SWG3 hope to submit a planning application to Glasgow City Council in the autumn.
