Operator lined up for tweaked Glasgow city centre hotel
September 11 2019
NYX Hotels are looking to extend their UK footprint with the selection of a city-centre site at Glasgow’s West Nile Street for their second venture, hot on the heels of confirmation that a site on Edinburgh’s Jeffrey Street would play host to a 132-bed NYX branded hotel.
Revised plans brought forward by George Capital and 3DReid Architects for the 14-storey hotel on the corner of West Nile Street and Bath Street make provision for a rooftop restaurant, street-level bar and a slight reduction in overall room numbers.
Replacing a low-rise unlisted building the amended proposals have been brought forward to meet the needs of NYX and include a redesigned rooftop plant area to minimise encroachment on wider views by setting it back behind louvred screens.
In a planning statement, the architects wrote: “Given the nature of the overall enhancement of the site, retaining active ground-floor use, ensuring the ongoing success of the SEIL and facilitating tourism in Glasgow, the proposal is entirely in line with national, strategic and local planning policy.
“In relation to the design, the proposal has been designed within the context of the surrounding conservation area. This results in something which is sympathetic to the aesthetics of the surrounding architecture is considerate of the conservation area and also increases the attractiveness of the site and its surroundings.”
NYX owner Fattal Hotels also own the Jurys Inn brand.
