Ogilvie Construction has started work on Glasgow’s first Yotel in a prime location on Argyle Street opposite the city’s Central Station.
The firm is transforming the Westergate building into a 256-room hotel that will be equipped with Yotel’s signature design and technology-driven hospitality offering.
Set to open for business in November 2019, the new hotel will feature Glasgow’s first destination rooftop bar complete with bowling alley and will be Yotel’s second hotel in Scotland after Edinburgh and its fifth in the UK.
Donald MacDonald, managing director at Ogilvie Construction, said: “We are delighted to be working with YOTEL to deliver their vision for a unique new hotel in the centre of Glasgow. Our team brings unrivalled specialist knowledge of the hotel and leisure sector and we look forward to successfully delivering another first class destination on the city.”
Yotel aims to take takes elements of luxury hotels and put them into smaller, ‘smart’ spaces in buildings that feature areas for co-working, social gatherings and exercise in sought after locations. Premium ‘cabins’ include features such as adjustable ‘smart beds’, rain showers and smart TVs.
