Former C&A store to be turned into 112-bed hotel
A former department store in the heart of Glasgow’s shopping district will be turned into a 112 bedroom hotel under plans lodged with the city council.
Manor Property Group, working with Mosaic Architecture + Design intend to convert the former Dunnes store – known to previous generations as a C&A store – into a Qtel under a £12 million redevelopment.
Mark Bailey, director of Manor Property Group, said: “We have identified hotels as a key area for development and intend to expand our existing nine hotel portfolio by developing six more hotels of 100+ guestrooms, with the possibility of further expansion once this milepost has been reached.”
Stephen Mallon, director of Mosaic, said: “It is an honour to be involved in this prestigious development for Manor Property Group, another major hotel project for the city following on from our Yotel project for Starwood on Argyle Street, which is currently on site.
“It is hoped that this development will add to the recent investment in this part of Sauchiehall Street, including the Willow Tea Rooms and the Sauchiehall Centre, to reinvigorate this part of the street, tying-in with the council’s Avenues initiative, currently under construction further along Sauchiehall Street.”
