Vacant listed building to get new role as boutique hotel
Prime site: the empty building will get a new role
Plans have been approved to convert a vacant B-listed building in Glasgow city centre into a 98-bed boutique hotel and serviced apartments.
3DReid is working with developer Henley Homes Group to create The Wellington at a corner of Wellington Street. The early 19th century building has been used previously as office space and a tribunal.
Although it is within the Glasgow Central Conservation Area, the building consists of a retained façade following prior remodelling work carried out in the 1990s.
Andrew Marshall, associate director, at 3DReid, said in a submission to planners: “The hotel will be developed by Henley’s Rogue City Hotels brand, bringing to market, a product that provides the best of both boutique hotels and serviced apartments.
“This high-quality building, which is currently unoccupied, will be sensitively restored and brought back to use throughout the day and into the evening. Located on a corner plot, the front of house accommodation will have an immediate positive relationship with the street.
“The building has been unlocked for hotel use by sympathetic modifications to the Wellington St entrance externally, whilst internally, floor plates have been modified to present a grand, but efficient volume in which to arrive.”
