RESTAURANT Plan For Vacant Glasgow City Centre Retail Unit

PLANS to turn an empty Glasgow city centre shop into a restaurant have been submitted to council planners.

The change-of-use application is for 86 St Vincent Street which has been vacant for almost a year.

Drawings show a 50-seat dining area on the ground floor of the A-listed building

The basement would have 12-seat private dining room plus the kitchen, toilets and storage.

The application has been made by the owner of the building. No operator for the restaurant is identified.

It’s expected that the opening hours would be 10am to 11pm, Monday to Thursday, and 10am to midnight on Friday and Saturday.

A supporting document submitted with the application states: “The proposed development will see this vacant property transformed into a quality restaurant which will animate the streetscape and enliven the area.

“This part of St Vincent Street has over the last few years seen a resurgence in evening activity with almost all of the ground floor premises now offering a range of dining experiences.”

The application is pending assessment.
