Go ahead for Pacific Quay Hotel

03 Dec 2012

Planning consent has been granted for a new 180 bed Premier Inn and Thyme Restaurant, designed by Lawrence McPherson Associates, for Whitbread PLC at Pacific Quay in Glasgow.

Located on the South side of the river Clyde, the new 6 storey hotel will be located next to the BBC Scotland building and across the river from the SECC and the 'Armadillo', in the heart of Creative Clyde.

The Premier Inn at Pacific Quay has been designed to maintain the strong building edge to the river and to provide a transition between the two very different heights of the neighbouring buildings. The Thyme restaurant will  face out onto the river, Clyde with an external dining area adjacent to the river creating a range of dining experiences for guests and to reinforce the active frontage of the building.

The design provides for a new public space which links Bells Bridge to Pacific Quay, formalising a key pedestrian link from the SECC to the site and beyond.

Plans have also been submitted for the construction of a new 120 bed hotel by De Vere Village Hotels and Scottish Enterprise as part of moves to redevelop the former Glasgow Garden Festival site. Designed by Curious as part of a wider 7N masterplan, subsequently adopted by BDP, the scheme will consist of a five storey bedroom block fronting Pacific Drive and an adjoining two storey leisure structure to the rear, including a 20m pool.
