A hotel operator is being sought for the former headquarters of BBC Scotland in Glasgow, which is being converted into an 85-room boutique hotel.
QMD Hotels, a joint venture between Esk Properties and Blackrock International Land, has received planning permission to convert the listed site, which is housed in 5.3 acres of Glasgow's West End overlooking the city's Botanic Gardens and the River Kelvin.
Demolition of redundant buildings on the site will begin within the next two months and the new hotel is expected to be completed by 2011.
The project also includes the construction of 183 apartments and three town-houses neighbouring the site.
The site is being marketed by property agents Christie & Co and Kerr Young, part of the investment and development unit at the company, said: "We are confident in attracting strong interest from a wide range of boutique hotel operators for what we believe is the finest boutique hotel opportunity to appear in Scotland for a number of years."
Glasgow hosts the Commonwealth Games in 2014.
