Botanic Garage Hotel
Botanic Garage Hotel, Vinicombe St, Glasgow
The Botanic Gardens Garage is located just off Byres Road on Vinicombe Street running parallel to Great Western Road in the West End of Glasgow. It occupies an L shaped site with a front (south facing) elevation to Vinicombe Street and a (west) side gable elevation to Vinicombe Lane. Although the building was in use as a garage for many years it has been vacant since 2006.
Core Associates as a practice have a particular interest in the re-use of existing buildings and have carried out a number of appraisals for clients where there has been a focus on a value added approach to re-use and often where there are extraordinary constraints on the redevelopment potential.
