A planning application for a mixed-use redevelopment, which includes a 300-bedroom four staff hotel and student accommodation, for the brownfield gap site at the junction of Renfrew Street and Renfield Street in Glasgow city centre, will be considered by Glasgow City Council later this month. 

The proposals have been put forward by ES Renfield Limited, part of McAleer & Rushe’s Property Division with The Dalata Hotel Group PLC, Ireland’s largest hotel chain, contractually confirmed as the operator for the hotel.

Mark Adams, Development Manager at McAleer & Rushe Property, said, “ES Renfield Limited is committed to investing in Glasgow and we are bringing deliverability and a major investment package to an important city centre gateway site that has lain vacant for 15 years. The proposals are commercially viable and construction would commence on site in early 2019 subject to planning approval.”

Councillor Thomas Kerr (Deputy Group Leader of the Conservatives at Glasgow Council) said “Glasgow badly needs more hotel space and this application would bring more spaces for our city. Glasgow also needs significant investment, which these proposals would bring, and that’s what I’ve been championing since my election. We need to send out the right message to the business community that Glasgow is open to investment.”
