Plans have been submitted to Glasgow City Council for a new 209
room waterfront hotel in Clyde Street. The £24m project will
incorporate the A-listed Custom House and significant new build on
an adjacent site.
The development will make use of the Custom House accommodation

outbuildings will be demolished and the new build element, with its
bold geometric exterior design, will fill a gap site on Dixon
Hotel operator Double Tree by Hilton are already on board as

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.
