Custom House Hotel at planning

26 Apr 2012

A new city centre hotel will provide 209 rooms, with a dramatic mix of old and new in a key waterfront location.

Plans have been submitted to Glasgow City Council for a new waterfront hotel, which will incorporate the A-listed Custom House in Clyde Street and significant new build on an adjacent site.

The £24m project is a joint venture by Irish based Ashbourne Property Fund and London based Revcap.

Architects SasanBell are behind the designs for the project which will breathe new life into one of Glasgow's historic buildings and create city centre hotel space in a strong  location.

The development will make use of the Custom House accommodation as the front of house elements for the hotel.  Current outbuildings will be demolished and the new build element, with its bold geometric exterior design will fill a gap site on Dixon Street.

Double Tree by Hilton are already on board as tenants for the new hotel, which could be completed during 2014.
