New design and music-inspired hotel planned for Glasgow’s Clydeside – Business Traveller

Plans have been unveiled for a new ‘hotel for music lovers’ on Glasgow’s Clydeside.

SWG3 has partnered with architecture firm Stallan-Brand to submit plans for a 142-room hotel at the corner of Eastvale Place and Sandyford Street, close to the independent arts venue.

If approved the property will feature a total of four restaurants and bars, as well as co-working space, a fitness centre, movement studio and rooftop terrace.

SWG3 said that the hotel would cater to both its own and the nearby SEC’s programme of events, providing “something distinctive and unique for the city with a spotlight on design and music”.

Glasgow’s hotel sector has been in the news in recent weeks, with the suddenly closure of Virgin Hotels Glasgow just four months after the property was unveiled on the banks of the River Clyde.

Commenting on the news Paul Stallan, design director, Stallan-Brand, said:

“Whilst the SWG3 Hotel is strategically situated to support the immediate regeneration initiative the hotel will also contribute to the ongoing success of Glasgow’s ‘Hydro Effect’ which has seen the city become a global magnet for major music and conference events.

“As a ‘hotel for music lovers’, the SWG3 team are excited to expand their programme with a new leisure offer that will ensure they remain more visible, vital and circular.”
