Planners green light hotel vision for Glasgow’s A-listed Custom House
October 26 2018
Glasgow City Council has awarded planning consent for a four-star Clayton Hotel at the former Custom House on the Broomielaw.
The £90m riverfront development could bring 300 bedrooms along with a bar restaurant and conference facilities with in the retained Custom House building and two adjoining high-rises if delivered as promised by mid-2020.
Clive Wilding, project director at Artisan, said: “It’s a hugely significant opportunity to bring Glasgow’s waterfront back into the vibrant heart of its city centre. For too long the Custom House and neighbouring tenements have become forgotten about and have mostly been vacant for the past decade.”
Designed by Sheppard Robson Architects the development also includes a 150-room aparthotel earmarked for an adjoining tenement.
I think it looks quite good personally, as do these.
All in all- i think it’s a good effort. I can’t wait to see the gap filled and some ground floor activation created.
Detailing has a couple of issues with keeps it out of the "no bad" category but it is better than filler.
