An £18 million hotel development on the site currently occupied by Oswald House and the adjacent gap site next to the Clyde Navigation Building on Glasgow’s Broomielaw has been granted planning approval by Glasgow City Council.
HMH One Clyde Ltd has been given permission for the conversion of the B-listed Oswald House to create a new waterfront hotel development across both sites.
Mosaic Architecture + Design submitted the application on behalf of HMH One Clyde last year.
At the time the application was submitted, Neil Haining, director of Mosaic, said: “The height of the proposed design is five storeys, with upper floors articulated to form enlarged feature dormers referencing those of Oswald Chambers.
“This contemporary interpretation of the traditional roofscape creates interest at high level and preserves the views of domes to the adjacent Clydeport building.”
Alec Knowles, director at HMH One Clyde, also said: “Redevelopment of this prominent corner site will fill a long vacant brownfield gap and contribute to the revitalisation of the Clyde waterfront.
“Glasgow is anticipating a rise in demand for dedicated short stay accommodation with increased activity forecast in both the tourism/ leisure and business conferencing sectors, which this development will directly address.”
The hotel will include a licenced premises, restaurant and meeting room facilities. The whole complex will have 123 bedrooms.
