Plans have been submitted for a 40-bedroom luxury hotel as part of a £3.5m mixed-use development in Paisley, Renfrewshire.
The property will include a bar, brasserie and conference facilities and sit alongside a microbrewery.
The development is headed by Tom Stewart, the owner of the 14-bedroom Ashtree House hotel in Paisley. He hopes the project will help breathe new life into the town, which currently has just two hotels.
"Successful regeneration projects tend to have an anchor development around which other developments and investments are stimulated," he explained. "We see the regeneration of Kelvin House and the Patternmaker building in the same way. It is an outstanding location adjacent to the Abbey and has the potential to become a focal point as the economy of the town develops."
If given the go-ahead, the hotel, which would provide 50 new jobs, will open in summer 2016.
