£25m Trongate hotel wins planning consent
February 7 2020
Caeledon Property Group has secured planning consent to proceed with a hotel-led development on the city’s Trongate including a mixed-retail element and replacement pub.
The 12-storey build will deliver 157 rooms topped by a roof terrace and requires demolition of an existing bank, shop units and the Oriental Bar at the junction of Trongate and Hutcheson Street.
Mosaic director Stephen Mallon said: “We look forward to leading the delivery team to construct the property through the next phase of this landmark development for the city on a very important site adjacent to the Grade A listed former bank building on the corner of Trongate and Glassford Street, which houses residential apartments and a Café Nero, that we successfully refurbished two years ago for the same client.
“We are confident that this development will be a positive addition to the skyline of Glasgow, fill an important part of Trongate and help revitalise this historically important area of the Merchant City, which will undergo significant change in the years to come.”
Rising from a pink granite base the build will compromise a mix of stone cladding and bronze anodized aluminium.
