Glasgow City Centre, Custom House Quay
Plans by Staybridge, part of the world's largest hotel
group, to build a multi- million pound, 20 storey hotel in Jamaica
Street at Central Station, have been abandoned. In their
place are proposals by Fortis Developments Ltd to convert the same
disused office block into student accommodation.
The conversion will include the addition of a new rooftop level
to provide 66 individual living spaces, alongside communal amenity
spaces. The building will be re-clad in red/brown brick
In March 2013 building works began on the project. As well
as living spaces, the developer will be providing other facilities
including a gym, laundrette, communal spaces and concierge
Building works commenced.
Between 2003 and 2014 Clyde Waterfront was a strategic
partnership comprising the Scottish Government, Scottish
Enterprise, Glasgow City, Renfrewshire and West Dunbartonshire
Councils. Its purpose was to promote the economic, social and
environmental regeneration of 13 miles of the River Clyde from
Glasgow city centre to Dumbarton.
