Work begins on 245-bed Glasgow city centre hotel

OGILVIE Construction has started work on a new 245-bed AC by Marriott hotel in Glasgow for Chris Stewart Group.

The hotel will form part of a £100 million mixed-use development in the north east corner of George Square and fill an 80-year-old gap site in the city.

Ogilvie MD Donald MacDonald said, “We are delighted to be working with CSG to deliver their vision for a new high quality hotel in the centre of Glasgow. Our team brings unrivalled specialist knowledge of the hotel and leisure sector and we look forward to delivering successfully another first class destination in the city.”

Tim Currie, project director at Chris Stewart Group added, “Located in the heart of Glasgow city centre the new AC by Marriott hotel is an exciting and highly visible development, which needs a careful and considered approach to the construction phase activities, and in Ogilvie we have found a partner with whom we can work collaboratively and confidently with to deliver a building that we can all be proud of.”
