Building Futures


Architectural features on a B-listed hotel are to be preserved as part of a new £16.8 million regeneration plan for Gallowgate in Glasgow.

Wheatley Group has submitted proposals for the latest phase of regeneration in the east end community. Plans will see large sections of the former Bellgrove Hotel retained and redeveloped into affordable housing.

The conversion of the 1930s building would retain large sections of greatest architectural importance, including retaining the front and east-facing elevations overlooking Gallowgate and the decorative bands of coloured tiles. The rear elevation and western wing are too narrow to accommodate flats and will be demolished.

If plans are approved, construction on the 17 one-bedroom and 53 two-bedroom home development will be undertaken by CCG on behalf of Lowther, part of Wheatley Group, and will be complete in spring 2026 with properties available for mid-market rent.

The site of the hotel will be developed as part of the ongoing work of Transforming Communities: Glasgow (TC:G) – a partnership between Glasgow City Council, Wheatley Group, and Scottish Government which is delivering community and housing-led regeneration at eight locations across the city.

Frank McCafferty, Wheatley Group’s director of assets and repairs, said:

“This is the latest exciting phase in the transformation of Gallowgate. We’re delighted we’ll be able to preserve the long architectural history of the Bellgrove Hotel and bring it up to the highest of modern living standards.

“By working closely with our partners in Glasgow City Council and Scottish Government we are able to not only improve the housing in the area for generations to come but change the lives of people in the community for the better.”
