Jumeirah plans five-star hotel in Glasgow

Dubai-based luxury hotel group Jumeirah is planning a five-star hotel in Glasgow, Scotland.

The 25-storey development is scheduled for opening in 2011 and will be located in Glasgow's financial district.

The development, Jumeirah's fifth hotel signed in Europe, will comprise 160 rooms, 85 serviced apartments and a 630-seat ballroom, according to Property Week.

Charles Price, chief executive of Progress Property Developments (PPD), the developer behind the scheme said: "We are very pleased to have Jumeirah join us as a partner in this exciting development.

"We have already worked closely with Jumeirah over the last few months on the details of our proposed development and we are confident that their involvement will help further ensure the success of this exciting project."

Councillor Steven Purcell, leader of Glasgow City Council, said: "Today's announcement is a resounding vote of confidence in Glasgow and its future ambitions, made all the sweeter by the fact that Jumeirah does not operate anywhere else in the United Kingdom outside London.'

Jumeirah operates the Burj Al Arab hotel on Dubai's seafront.
