Royal Exchange Square lit up

by Hannah Thomson

A decade long, eighty million pound project to develop Glasgow’s Royal Exchange Square is being aided by leisure and property millionaire James Mortimer.

The prominent Glasgow businessman’s twenty-five million pound vision for the historic square includes a hotel with more than 100 beds, high-end retail units, bars, restaurants and a casino.

A major part of the scheme will be to make use of the alleys and lanes which connect Buchanan Street and Queen Street, and it proposes to “unlock a route from Royal Exchange Square to Princes Square.

Mortimer has also submitted plans for a hotel in the east end of Glasgow, near Celtic Park which will face the new Emirates Arena.
