Northern Ireland-based developer and contractor McAleer & Rushe has checked-in with planning to build hotels in Birmingham and Glasgow city centres.

Representing an investment of £85m, the two hotels will deliver 630 bedrooms and will be operated by Ireland’s largest hotel operator, Dalata, under its four-star Maldron brand.

McAleer & Rushe Contracts UK will build both hotels this summer, with practical completion anticipated within two years.

Stephen Surphlis, property director at McAleer & Rushe said: Glasgow has one of the fastest growing economies in the UK and Birmingham continues to secure a range of inward investment projects, with the opening of the HS2 high speed rail network in 2026.

“We’ve been encouraged by the support shown by both local authorities in processing the applications in a professional and timely manner allowing construction works to commence in the coming months and we look forward to working with in partnership with Dalata once again.”

Maldron Hotel Glasgow

The 300-bed 4 star hotel in Glasgow, the first Maldron Hotel for Dalata in Scotland, will be located on Renfrew St, close to Buchannan St and employ c. 100 staff. It forms part of a wider masterplan by McAleer & Rushe to include c. 100,000 sq.ft of Grade A offices.

Maldron Hotel Birmingham

The 330-bed Maldron Hotel in Birmingham is prominently located in the city centre 5 minutes walk from New Street Station and will be delivered in advance of 2022 Common Wealth Games, employing up to 105 staff. The development which is regenerating a derelict site, will feature a business centre, ground floor bar and restaurant with guest rooms arranged over 10 uppers floors.
