Go Native to convert iconic Glasgow building

UK: Go Native has revealed plans to convert the 1906 Anchor Line building in to a 64-key aparthotel.

The seven storey building was built as headquarters for the eponymous shipping line, but by the end of this year it will be trading as a Go Native aparthotel.

The building is in Glasgow's St Vincent Place. Its ground and basement floors are home to the Anchor Line and Atlantic restaurants.

Go Native has announced a multi-million pound refurbishment of the remaining six floors to create Anchor Line Apartments. The units will retain many of the building's Art Deco features, including glazed tiles, terrazzo flooring, timber wall panelling, safes and fireplaces.

Guy Nixon, founder and 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."
