ISG to turn Glasgow's Anchor Line building into aparthotel

Construction services company ISG has been awarded a £5.5m contract to convert Glasgow's Anchor Line building into a 64-bed aparthotel for the White Building Development Company.

Originally designed 110 years ago by Scottish architect James Miller for the shipping company, the building's ground and basement floors are currently home to the Anchor Line and Atlantic restaurants.

While several original features, including glazed tiles, terrazzo flooring, timber wall panelling, safes and fireplaces will remain, ISG will comprehensively refurbish the six floors to create 64 studio- and one-bed-apartments with views over the city.

ISG's former hospitality projects include the Trump Turnberry hotel in Ayrshire, and in London, the Goring and Kensington hotels, and the Devonshire and 67 Pall Mall private members' clubs.

Andy McLinden, managing director of ISG's UK construction north and Scotland business, said: "There is a renaissance in the Scottish luxury hospitality sector, especially in key locations in our urban centres. With limited scope for new build developments, this has resulted in growing demand to adapt and transform existing property assets into high-end hotels."
