Planning submission heightens anticipation of £70m George Square plan
October 6 2016£70m lane development off George Square later this week after securing the backing of Glasgow Chamber of Commerce.
Hoskins Architects have been brought on board to transform two listed buildings on George Street into 43 serviced apartments and office space together with construction of a 258-bed hotel and a 272 bed student accommodation block.
Chris Stewart commented: “We have been looking for the right opportunity in Glasgow for some time now, and were delighted to be chosen as the preferred developer by City Property (Glasgow) and Glasgow City Council for this important and strategic site right in the heart of the city centre. We have been working closely with GCC and a number of other stakeholders for almost a year to ensure that our proposals and vision for the site match with the city’s aspirations for high quality mixed use development.”
A new lane will also be routed through the site to provide a focal point for a range of restaurants, bars, cafes, boutiques and food stores as well as a public plaza.
