A former bar and restaurant in Paisley, 42 New Street, which was named after its address, is set to undergo a transformation into an 11-unit aparthotel, following approval from Renfrewshire Council.
The property was sold earlier this year before it could go to auction, with the sale amount remaining undisclosed.
The council’s decision to grant planning permission for the change of use from a public house to service apartments was based on a report stating, “The application seeks planning permission for change of use of a public house to eleven service apartments on New Street, Paisley. The applicant also proposes to make associated alterations to the front elevation of the property.
The property occupies a site within the town centre conservation area and includes two distinct sections. One is a three-story sandstone tenement, while the other is a two-storey building.
The apartments within the aparthotel will be self-contained, each equipped with its own internal entrance. External access will be provided through a single doorway on New Street, and every unit will feature a kitchen and a bathroom.
