Forrest Group to build 176-bed Finnieston Quay chameleon hotel
September 7 2015
Designed by ADF Architects the £30m waterfront venue will incorporate a rooftop sky bar, gym and event spaces housed behind a dynamic façade that gives the illusion of changing colour in relation to the quality of natural light.
The ten storey structure will also play host to two digital screens advertising events at the nearby Clyde Auditorium and The Hydro.
Forrest Group CEO Chris Trainer said: “Radisson Red will be unique and iconic in its architecture and a great addition to the city’s skyline. The changing colour of the building throughout the day - reacting to the natural daylight - is a really interesting and innovative feature.”
Work is expected to get underway early next year subject to planning approval with completion expected by September 2017.
