Planning granted for redesign of BBC Scotland HQ involving Mackintosh designed building 

3DReid has successfully received planning permission and listed building consent from Glasgow City Council to build a hotel on the site of the former BBC Scotland Headquarters in Glasgow’s West End.

The Hamilton, Glasgow, will be a 120 room luxury 5 star hotel and spa and is a combination of restoration and new-build, encompassing three listed buildings – The James Miller Building, the Anatomy Building of Queen Margaret College and North Park House – alongside a sympathetically designed, newly-constructed bedroom wing.

The Anatomy Building was designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh and John Keppie, hidden from view for much of BBC Scotland’s 72 years on this site, and its restoration will add significantly to Glasgow’s aspiration to become a Charles Rennie Mackintosh World Heritage site.

Planned for opening in 2011, The Hamilton represents an investment of £26m and will ultimately create approximately 150 jobs in the city.

Heather MacLeod, Managing Director of THG, said: “This is a major milestone in our commitment to creating The Hamilton as an iconic hotel that Glasgow can be proud of – a hotel that is both luxurious and informal but, importantly, welcoming to all."

3DReid are also responsible for the National Indoor Arena and Velodrome being built in advance of the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow which gained planning permission in April.
