INN ON THE GREEN
TO BECOME FLATS
12 April 2006
Glasgow’s Inn On The Green restaurant is to be replaced as developers
plan to create a 75-room hotel, 88 flats and another restaurant on the site
of the former upmarket eatery.
The Inn On The Green, which included an 18-bedroom hotel and restaurant,
closed at the end of last year and the building was taken over by developers
Campsie Glasgow Green Ltd.
It will now be demolished to make way for the new properties, although the
B-listed stone facade will be retained with a steel and concrete building
erected behind it. The proposals for Greenhead St and McPhail St near
Bridgeton include a new groundfloor bar and restaurant. Warehouses on the
site behind the restaurant will be converted into residential properties and
Councillors granted planning permission for
demolition and the new development, despite 12 objections over parking, noise pollution, loss of
view and reduced TV signals.
In a report to councillors, developers Campsie Glasgow Green said: "In terms
of the economic sustainability of the hotel, the previous owners struggled
for many years to maintain the business in profit. Ultimately their efforts
failed despite its established reputation".
