Project in focus: Clayton Hotel Clyde Street Glasgow

by | 24 Mar 2021 | Hotel Projects, Projects

The eye-catching scheme to create Clayton Hotel Clyde Street Glasgow involves transforming a historic riverfront site in Scotland’s largest city.

Combining the renovated Custom House and a significant newbuild component, Clayton Hotel Clyde Street Glasgow represents a significant investment in the Scottish hospitality scene.

Heritage meets modern design

Currently planned for completion in the second quarter of 2022, this ambitious development in Glasgow city centre has already got plenty of people talking. Developer Artisan Real Estate is undertaking the scheme in collaboration with a stellar team that includes Dalata Hotel Group, which is behind the Clayton Hotels chain; architect Sheppard Robson; and contractor McAleer & Rushe.

It’s envisaged that the Custom House building will function as the main entrance to the 294-key Clayton hotel. This heritage asset will then link to the newbuild hotel accommodation by means of a covered courtyard with a glazed roof.

The modern element of the project, located behind and to the side of Custom House, will also house a restaurant and seventh-floor terrace overlooking the river.

A central Glasgow location

On opening, the four-star hotel should prove popular with travellers thanks to its central location next to the River Clyde. The prominent plot earmarked for development is close to Glasgow Central Station and just a short walk away from the International Financial Services District and popular shopping areas.

Clayton Hotel Clyde Street Glasgow will share its home with a new aparthotel, Adagio Glasgow Saint Enoch.
