Go Native announces Glasgow aparthotel plans

Go Native has announced plans to open Anchor Line Apartments, an aparthotel based in the historic Anchor Line Building in the heart of Glasgow.

The building is undergoing a multi-million pound refurbishment programme to create a 64-unit aparthotel.

Originally designed 110 years ago by Scottish architect James Miller for the eponymous Anchor Line shipping company, the building’s ground and basement floors are home to the Anchor Line restaurant and Atlantic Restaurant, operated by the DiMaggios Restaurant Group.

Due to open in summer 2018, the aparthotel will operate across the remaining six floors, offering studio, one bed and penthouse apartments. Many original features from the Art Deco building are being retained including glazed tiles, terrazzo flooring, timber wall panelling, safes and fireplaces.

Guy Nixon, Founder & CEO of Go Native, said: “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.

“We have worked in close partnership with building owners the White Building Properties Company to mirror the design ethos of the existing Anchor Line and Atlantic restaurants and recreate the opulence of a 1920’s ocean liner.

“The launch is an important milestone in our plans to expand our aparthotel business across all major cities in the UK.”

Anchor Line Apartment is one of two Go Native aparthotels to launch outside of London in 2018. The 166-bedroom The London Warehouse in Manchester will open in August 2018.

Go Native operates 1,500 apart-hotel units across the UK.
