Providing functional yet stylish accommodation from which to explore Scotland’s cultural capital, Native Glasgow marks a new way to stay for those visiting the city.
Located in the heart of Glasgow city centre, Native Glasgow sees the multi-million-pound restoration of an Edwardian Art Deco office building, formerly the headquarters of the Anchor Line Shipping Company, into a remarkable aparthotel, offering 64 apartments ranging from studio to penthouse spaces offering views over the city.
Native worked alongside interior architects ICA to preserve the building’s heritage and guests can expect to see numerous original features, including glazed tiles, terrazzo flooring, timber wall panelling and fireplaces.
Native Glasgow provides all the benefits of a hotel but with the space, flexibility and freedom of a private apartment. Facilities include 24-hour reception, concierge and free high-speed Wi-Fi. In addition to this, the building’s ground and basement floors are already home to two popular restaurants, The Anchor Line and Atlantic, which are open from breakfast through to dinner.
“This is a rare opportunity to reimagine a piece of Glasgow’s shipping heritage as a uniquely special space for the city’s visitors to stay," says Guy Nixon, CEO of Native. "The magnificent Art Deco building’s glazed façade sold it to us as the ideal location for our first Scottish venture.
“We have worked in close partnership with building owners, the White Building Properties Company (part of DiMaggio Group), to mirror the design ethos and opulence of a 1920s ocean liner. Native Glasgow feels like an exciting milestone in our plans to expand our aparthotel business across all major UK cities.”
Centrally located next to Glasgow’s historic George Square, and only a short walk from cultural attractions including the Gallery of Modern Art, Merchant City and Buchanan Street, Native Glasgow’s friendly team are on hand to share their insider knowledge of the best places to eat, drink and explore, keeping guests connected to the city’s most exciting destinations.
