Work gets underway on George Square hotel9th of March, 2020
EPCA have been instructed to undertake project monitoring on the £20m hotel section of the new Love Loan, Glasgow development. The hotel will be a "AC by Marriot" branded 245 bed new build hotel.
Previously home to a number of City Council departments, the Love Loan development site, consisted of a collection of disparate and contrasting buildings including the former Inland Revenue building at 280 George Street and the Parish Halls at 266 George Street, as well as an 80 year old gap site and assorted small storage buildings on Martha Street.
The project will involve a mix of complementary uses that will enable retention and refurbishment of much of the listed buildings, which add richness and give character to the site, with new build elements that will repair and reinstate the urban block.
