Listed building consent granted for Glasgow hotel conversion

3DReid Architects have won consent for a change of use application at Glasgow’s B-listed Wellington House to transform the B-listed offices into a 98-bed boutique hotel and serviced apartments.

The Wellington has been proposed by Henley Homes Group to reinvigorate the building, reduced to a retained façade during prior remodeling work carried out in the 1990s, by preserving its historic character and enhancing the setting of the city’s central conservation area.

Updating planners on the proposed interventions Andrew Marshall, associate director, at 3DReid said: “This high quality building, which is currently unoccupied, will be sensitively restored and brought back to use throughout the day and into the evening. Located on a corner plot, the front of house accommodation will have an immediate positive relationship with the street.

“The building has been unlocked for hotel use by sympathetic modifications to the Wellington Street entrance externally, whilst internally, floor plates have been modified to present a grand, but efficient volume in which to arrive.”

Lovely-looking building.

The solitary nearby car park (Q-Park with the otable ramped entrance) must be busting at the seams with all the hotels now in the area though.
