HOTEL Plan For B-Listed Ex-Tribunal Court Building In Glasgow City Centre

A HISTORIC Glasgow building, formerly used as a tribunal court and offices, looks set to be turned into a 98-bedroom hotel.

Property developer Henley Homes Group has lodged a change-of-use application for Wellington House, on the corner of Wellington Street and Bath Street.

The current building is largely a modern five-storey structure built in the 1990s behind the B-listed retained facade of the former Wellington Buildings.

Drawings indicate the hotel would be known as The Wellington.

A statement submitted to Glasgow City planners explains: “The proposed application relates to the re-imagining of Wellington House as a hotel and will involve the sensitive conversion of the listed building into city centre bedroom accommodation.”

It continues: “There are minimal external alterations proposed due to the sensitive nature of the listed facades.

“An external lighting scheme is proposed for the external elevations to Bath Street and Wellington Street to enhance the character of the listed facades and the visibility of the hotel within the evening streetscape.”

The application is pending assessment by council officials.
