Aparthotel plans unveiled for unoccupied Glasgow city centre site

PMI Developments and Peveril Securities have lodged a proposal of application notice with Glasgow City Council to redevelop an unoccupied site on the corner of Cambridge Street and Renfrew Street to create an aparthotel.

Designed by Glasgow-based architect studio HAUS collective, the aparthotel will include 24-hour reception, a gym, rooftop terrace, lounge and café, combined with the increased space of a self-catering apartment designed for longer stays, complete with a kitchen and living area.

Nigel Jones, director of PMI Developments said, “Despite Glasgow’s buoyant hotel market there is a lack of quality aparthotels in the city which is growing in popularity across Europe amongst both business and leisure travellers. This prominent site with its central location lends itself well to an aparthotel and will be a boost to the ongoing regeneration of Sauchiehall Street.”

A public consultation event will take place on Tuesday 15th November from 1pm until 6pm at Edward House, 199 Sauchiehall Street, when the proposals will be available to view and the design team will be available to answer questions.

A planning application is expected to be submitted in the new year following further consultation as designs progress.
