The Custom House, Glasgow
A 209-bedroom hotel is planned for one of Glasgow’s most historic buildings which lies just to the south of Buchanan Street/St Enoch’s Square, enjoying unparalleled views over the River Clyde. Mason Philips worked with the owners to secure a four-star hotel operator for the project.
An intrinsic part of Glasgow’s maritime heritage, The Custom House had fallen into some disrepair, and was used to provide cheap low grade offices, when Mason Philips client, Ashcap LLP, acquired the property in 2008. Having identified serious interest from two international hotel groups, Hilton were chosen as partner for a new 4 star hotel. The designs for this new 209 bedroom hotel are complete, blending modern city centre facilities yet retaining the heritage of the original building, and a planning application has been submitted with consent anticipated in 2013.
