Moxy Hotels firm up Glasgow venture
July 26 2016180-bed hotel on Glasgow’s High Street within the Collegelands development as part of a nationwide roll-out for the brand.
Fronting a new civic area at the junction with Duke Street the six-storey hotel will include an ‘industrial chic’ lounge, bar and restaurant as well as a video wall and games area.
In a design statement developer Vastint remarked: “The main hotel entrance will be from the west elevation fronting the town square and there will be a connecting path and entrance plaza for safe and convenient pedestrian access to the rail station and the adjacent bus stops.
“There is a strong emphasis on the design of both gables (east and west) to provide visual interest and quality. For this important and prominent site we have dropped Moxy’s standard design to create a bespoke solution with additional glass on the ground floor and we have turned the bedrooms at both ends of the building to address the gables.”
The finished scheme will be faced in a variety of fibre cement panels including ‘brick’, plain and dark varieties to tie-in with existing Collegelands developments.
