WORK has started on a new AC by Marriott hotel in Glasgow City Centre.
Ogilvie Construction is building the 245-bed property at George STreet/John Street for developer Chris Stewart Group.
It is part of a £100 million mixed-use development which will transform most of a city block near the north east corner of George Square.
Donald MacDonald, managing director, Ogilvie Construction, said: “We are delighted to be working with Chris Stewart Group to deliver their vision for a new high quality hotel in the centre of Glasgow.
“Our team brings unrivalled specialist knowledge of the hotel and leisure sector and we look forward to delivering successfully another first class destination in the city.”
Tim Currie, project director, Chris Stewart Group, said: “Located in the heart of Glasgow city centre, the new AC by Marriott hotel is an exciting and highly visible development, which needs a careful and considered approach to the construction phase activities, and in Ogilvie we have found a partner with whom we can work collaboratively and confidently with to deliver a building that we can all be proud of.”
The new hotel is the first stage in the realisation of Chris Stewart Group’s vision to deliver an experience and lifestyle-led destination in the heart of the city,
The development also includes conversion of a historic building into apartments plus a high-rise student accommodation building.
