Latest Glasgow hotel plans submitted
Plans have been submitted by Unite the Union for the demolition of Typographical House on Glasgow’s Clyde Street to make way for a new 54.5m tall hotel development.

Designed by Glasgow/Manchester based Haus Collective the scheme would incorporate north and south facing terraces as part of a double height rooftop restaurant with 13 floors of accommodation below.

Meeting the street with a ground floor commercial unit and first floor reception area the scheme would also incorporate informal meeting spaces.

It is the latest in a series of speculative hotel visions for the Clyde Street corridor following plans for the former Custom House and a mothballed scheme immediately adjacent.
Feature lighting will be employed at night to create a riverfront landmark

Would be great to see this happen- a rooftop restaurant on this site would be an inevitable success- as it would act as a catalyst for the jumpstart of Clyde Street/River area. This area should be teeming with activity and life and yet it remains culturally marginalized as a neglected periphery where people see no reason to visit.
Yet I'm still dubious if this will ever materialize as we've all heard these schemes so many times before- I'll believe it when I see it.
All in all Glasgow needs more hotel rooms as recent figures have shown.

I agree the area needs it,But the style of building leaves me cold,and with the one at custom hose just being given go ahead after all these years! I don't see this happening.

Considerably more elegant and less fussy and stylised than the effort at the Custom House

Good to see continuation of innovation and style in architecture in Glasgow.
