Glasgow hotel approved

Plans for a 26-storey hotel in a rundown area of Glasgow's city centre have been approved by councillors.

The glass-fronted tower in Argyle Street will include 160 rooms and 68 serviced apartments and will be aimed at the luxury market.

City council planning officials described the project as a "cutting edge, landmark development" which would act as a gateway to the redeveloped Broomielaw district.

Charles Price of developers Progress Property said he was delighted to have an opportunity to help Glasgow "achieve its tourism ambitions."

Green city councillor Nina Baker unsuccessfully argued that the building should be restricted to 11 storeys to avoid it casting shadows over neighbouring homes and businesses.
