Hotel plans for Clyde Street

15 Nov 2013

A new hotel is planned for Clyde Street on the site of 1960s Graphical House.

The Unite Union has applied for permission to demolish a property it has inherited in central Glasgow with the intention of redeveloping the site as a 16-storey hotel.

The entire cost of the demolition and rebuild is estimated at just over £2 million.

Unite's plans are to pull down the early 1960s-built Graphical House, the former home of the Graphical, Paper and Media Union, on Clyde Street, overlooking the river and just along from St Andrew's Catholic Cathedral.

The go-ahead for the scheme could be granted early next year. Unite would bring in a hotel firm to run the property.

At least one budget hotel operator has expressed an interest in the proposal.
