Arts and music hub SWG3 has announced plans to build a 139-bedroom ‘hotel for music lovers’ nearby.
The site of the proposed development is a pocket of disused land at the corner of Eastvale Place and Sandyford Street.
The project team includes SWG3, which has transformed the former industrial complex in Yorkhill into a leading arts and music hub, and architects Stallan-Brand.
Also joining the team is hotelier Bruce Robertson, who brings over 25 years of international experience in the design, development and operation of lifestyle hotels and private members clubs.
“The proposed ‘hotel for music lovers’ will not only redevelop and improve currently disused land, but introduce a unique hub to the neighbourhood, further establishing Glasgow as a must-visit tourist destination”, according to a press release.
A public consultation event is planned for Thursday June 8 between 3pm and 6pm at SWG3.
Andrew Mickel, SWG3 director, said: “Our vision for the SWG3 hotel is to deliver a brand new welcoming space for all creative souls to stay.
“A unique new location for nurturing art, music and creative magic wrapped in cutting edge design.
“Since transforming the galvanizers' yard and disused warehouses into one of the country’s most talked about arts venues, the SWG3 team have continued to invest heavily in the community, and this project will be no different.
Our vision for the SWG3 hotel is to deliver a brand new welcoming space for all creative souls to stay.
“We hope to not only deliver economic growth for the Clydeside, Yorkhill and Glasgow as a whole, but prove that good business can be sustainable and socially conscious as well as simply great fun.”
Paul Stallan, Stallan-Brand creative director, said: "Our aim is to deliver a hotel like no other.
“The SWG3 cultural venue defies being categorised, it's a cultural polymath and phenomenon.
“From performance, live music, theatre through to major visual arts events, SWG3 has become Scotland’s go to destination.
“Whether Scottish Opera or a Comme des Garçons guerrilla store, through to the First Minister learning the art of graffiti, the location has attracted industry and sector accolades for its enterprise and creative spirit.
“To accelerate this unique offer that unites art, fashion and music we aim to deliver a hotel experience that is more Glasgow than Glasgow.”
Due to open in late 2026, the 139-bedroom hotel will also feature two restaurants, two bars, co-working spaces, a gym and movement studio, and rooftop terrace.
SGW3 says that its plans have been lodged.
