Brian & Ciara McGettigan’s The Address Collective has completed the acquisition of the former Pocotel in Glasgow City Centre. The Address Collective were advised by property advisor, Savills Ireland on the deal. The hotel will be re-launched as The Address Hotel Glasgow.
The hotel is prominently positioned on a corner site at 139-141 West George Street and is an impressive six-storey, listed building with 91 bedrooms, a restaurant, bar, meeting rooms and a fitness room. The property benefits from its very central location and the strong corporate and leisure sectors in Glasgow, Scotland’s largest city.
The property also includes two restaurant units leased to third-party operators.
According to Savills, Glasgow offers a robust conference market, and during the 2022/23 season, the city will host over 200 conferences. It is recognised in the top three UK tech cities outside of London and Glasgow has a growing tech workforce.
Brian & Ciara McGettigan, owners of the Address Collective, said: “This purchase demonstrates our appetite to grow the Address Collective Brand and we have plans to create a bespoke product that will enhance Glasgow’s hotel offering. The building lends itself to a truly boutique hotel and we look forward to the launch of The Address Hotel Glasgow.”
Tom Barrett, Savills Hotels added: “We were delighted to advise on this acquisition and source a property that is an ideal addition to the Address Collective.”
