Tradeston gets The Point

Tradeston gets The Point
Glasgow’s hotel bonanza shows no sign of abating with Northern Ireland keen to grab a slice of the action in the form of Benmore Developments.  The developer is seeking to rehabilitate an abandoned property on Morrison Street to accommodate a 153 bed hotel.

Plans being drawn up by 3DReid would see the existing four storey structure expanded upon with a split level glazed penthouse and the introduction of a ground floor café.

Constraints of a triangular slip of land at an important road junction immediate to the successful restoration of the Co-op building necessitate a distinctive footprint and the developments monicker of  “The Point”.

Commercial interest in a previously neglected quarter is a hoped for by product of  ongoing public realm works at Tradeston riverfront.

Benmore are currently engaged in discussions with Glasgow City Council prior to a full planning application being made.
