4-star hotel for Glasgow
First Adina on course with added rooms
Adina plan: additional rooms
The first Adina Apartment Hotel in the UK has moved a step closer under plans to convert a Glasgow office building.
Mosaic Architecture + Design has resubmitted an application to turn the block at 249 West George Street into a four-star hotel.
The application relates to adding more rooms. Planning consent for converting the Richard Seifert-designed building has already been approved and this latest submission is for 110 bedrooms and the creation of a glazed bedroom extension of the top floor.
Neil Haining, director of Mosaic, said: “The proposed extension to the existing top floor level will create high level suites with exemplary view across Blythswood Square. The overall increase in scale of the existing building has been carefully balanced with the scale of the adjacent B-listed properties surrounding Blythswood Square.”
The existing deteriorated facades will undergo a full ‘like-for-like’ replacement, with the existing sandstone cladding being removed and replaced, along with new glazed units which will meet current standards. An external courtyard area will provide a private external space for guests.
A new feature entrance on West George Street will provide access to ground floor bar and restaurant facilities while a new extension accommodating additional bedroom suites, external terrace area and plant space is proposed within the existing rear parking courtyard.
Adina is a brand of TFE Hotels, a company headquartered in Australia. There are 30 Adina Apartment Hotels in Australia, New Zealand and Europe.
