SWG3 hosts public consultation day for ambitious hotel project

A public consultation day will be held in the Acid Bar on Thursday 8 June to gather public feedback about the ambitious new SWG3 Hotel project. 

The planned project, which will see a hotel built beside SWG3, has been put forward with the local community in mind. Working alongside leading placemaking architect and designer Stallan-Brand, the new development will transform currently abandoned land, improving its current state, and will act as the next step in our ambitious regeneration efforts to transform the Clydeside and surrounding areas into a cultural hotspot. 

The 139-bedroom hotel will feature two restaurants, two bars, co-working spaces, a gym and movement studio, and a rooftop terrace. As a company with sustainability at its heart, the hotel will be no different – with waste reduction methods and energy efficiency already included in the plans. 

Our vision for the SWG3 hotel is to deliver a brand new welcoming space for all creative souls to stay. A unique new location for nurturing art, music and creative magic wrapped in cutting edge design.
Since transforming the Galvanizers Yard and disused warehouses into one of the country’s most talked about arts venues, the SWG3 team have continued to invest heavily in the community, and this project will be no different. We hope to not only deliver economic growth for the Clydeside, Yorkhill and Glasgow as a whole, but prove that good business can be sustainable and socially conscious as well as simply great fun.

Andrew Mickel, SWG3 Director.


The public consultation, which will be held in the Acid Bar on Thursday 8 June from 3pm till 6pm, will give members of the public the chance to come along and view the proposed plans for the hotel. It will be an opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the project, and all feedback is welcomed and will be recorded. 

If you are unable to attend the in-person consultation, an online consultation page will be posted on the SWG3 website following the event on Thursday 8 June, where you'll be able to view the plans and leave feedback.
