Glasgow hotel plans make way for more student accommodation
October 23 2012submitted plans for the conversion of an empty office block on Glasgow’s Jamaica Street to form new student accommodation, signalling the final demise of plans to erect a 20 storey hotel on the site.
Designed by Young & Gault the conversion will entail addition of a new rooftop level to accommodate 66 individual self-catering spaces alongside communal amenity areas.
Plans entail re-cladding the brick finished block with red/brown brick slip finish insulated cladding.
Located immediately adjacent to the Central Station approach the plot terminates the vista down Howard Street.
It supersedes prior proposals to transform the plot with a hi-rise hotel which have been stalled since 2008. The lower value end-use means this scheme may have a higher chance of being realised.
