Govan Travelodge beds in
Mosaic Architecture + Design have broken ground at a new Travelodge hotel in Govan, catering to users of the new Queen Elizabeth University Hospital.

Occupying the junction between Linthouse and Govan Road’s the three-storey build will include a ground-floor café-bar and is expected to complete early next year.

Neil Haining, director of Mosaic, said: “This new hotel is located on the remaining site within the Linthouse Business Park mixed use masterplan and sits on the most prominent location within the local streetscape, on the corner of Linthouse Road and Govan Road, with the southern corner of the site facing directly on to the main access route into the new Hospital.

“The site was formally occupied by the famous Alexander Stephen and Sons shipyard, which was once an icon of Glasgow’s illustrious industrial past. As times have changed, this has become a disused brownfield site which is now seeing substantial regeneration.

“As the site enjoys a prominent position within its urban context, it provides the opportunity to form a gateway building to this mixed-use regeneration site. A mixture of planting, shared surfaces and car parking will be used to integrate the hotel with a neighbouring village green as part of Linthouse Point.”

Travelodge is investing £100m in 21 new hotels across Scotland including five in Glasgow alone at the West End, city centre, the SECC, Silverburn and in the East End near the M8.

Glasgow City Council is guilty of contributing to the rash of mundane architecture across the City while being equally culpable in wanton destruction of some of its most beautiful buildings.

Could be anywhere. Gorgeous it ain’t.
