Cheval Maison rides into Glasgow
Cheval Collection is moving its luxury apartment brand, Cheval Maison, into Glasgow for the first time, joining sister strand My Locanda as a development underway in the major Scottish city.
A joint partnership with 141WRS, Cheval Maison – West Regent Glasgow will comprise 70 units and is due to open in 2025.
The 70 apartments will be split into 27 standard studios, 15 large studios, 23 one-bedroom apartments and five two-bedroom apartments.
The Cheval Maison – West Regent will be Cheval Collection’s fifth property in Scotland. My Locanda Glasgow is on the slate too, also marking the urban lifestyle accommodation concept’s debut in the city. The 168-room development is due to open in 2024.
Roof restaurant appeal
Simon Mullen, MD, 141WRS, said of Cheval Maison – West Regent Glasgow: “Cheval Collection’s decades of experiences in serviced apartments made it the obvious choice for this development, which we hope will reinvigorate this corner of the city centre.
“We expect the Cheval Maison property in Glasgow to attract international guests and appeal to the local community with restaurants on the ground floor and roof terrace.”
Mohammed S Alawadhi, MD, Cheval Collection, added: “We are thrilled to be working with 141WRS on this project in a city we love.
“After 40 years of operating serviced apartments we have gained the knowledge which delivers results for owners, loyalty from guests and qualifies us for our next phase of expansion. Being also owners means that we have learned to be flexible and treat each site as unique, multi-purpose accommodation where guests can live their lives, whether travelling for business or leisure.
“A growing number of investors are attracted to products which can offer a high rate of return, with efficient operations, which has grown in importance as cost and staffing pressures have also grown. We have significant amounts of projects under discussion for our full range of brands, with consideration given to both urban and resort locations.”
The group is in talks with a number of other owners in global cities, with a particular focus on the UK, Italy, Spain, France and other key countries in Europe, as well as the Middle East, where demand is growing.
Already in the pipeline are Cheval Maison Frankfurt, a 181-apartment site due to open in Q4 2023, and Cheval Maison -The Palm Dubai, a 131 serviced apartment property comprising a range of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments including a three-bedroom penthouse. Delivering in Q1 2023, the site will feature a rooftop pool, lobby lounge and F&B offering, gymnasium and private parking.
