West Nile Street hotel given the nod by Glasgow planners
June 12 2020
3DReid has won planning consent to proceed with a 183-bed hotel in the heart of Glasgow's central conservation area.
Acting on behalf of George Capital the practice is spearheading the ambitious build at the junction of West Nile and Bath Street, including a rooftop restaurant and external terrace on the 15th floor.
New granite setts will be laid at the busy junction with an extensive ground floor bar and lounge area set back from the street behind a collonaded entrance.
Mark Lorimer, associate director at 3DReid, commented: “The planning consent is a fantastic result on a site with great potential, and certainly offered some interesting and stimulating challenges. We have really enjoyed working with George Capital and the design team, and we’re now very much looking forward to the next steps, and hopefully sharing a drink with the team in the rooftop restaurant at some point!”
The split character build rises from a robust vase designed to complement the solid masonry of its established neighbours while setback higher levels give way to fritted glass.
