Pacific Quay Holiday Inn hotel decision deferred

Councillors have delayed a verdict on plans to build a hotel at Pacific Quay in Glasgow to allow for a hearing about the development.

Mosaic Architecture + Design submitted proposals with Iceni Projects last year for the 150-bedroom hotel situated on the former Glasgow Garden Festival site on the south bank of the River Clyde.

Twelve letters of support were received by Glasgow City Council’s planning committee, which had been recommended to reject the project when it considered the application yesterday because Glasgow’s development plan limits use of the land to business or industrial purposes.

Instead, the committee agreed to arrange a hearing which will feature a presentation by officials and also allow those who support or oppose the application to contribute.

The proposed development will feature seven storeys with a first floor split between conferencing and co-working space and a Skybar on the top floor.

The project represents an investment of more than £18 million in Glasgow by developer Pacific Quay Developments. RBH Hospitality Management was lined up as the operator with more than 50 permanent jobs set to be created.
