The tall building sporting the slogan 'People Make Glasgow' is the former City of Glasgow College building. This Category B listed building [LinkExternal link] was built between 1958 and 1964 as the Glasgow College of Building and Printing. It became part of the City of Glasgow College, following the merger of Glasgow Metropolitan College (formed by the merger of the Glasgow College of Building & Printing and Glasgow College of Food Technology), Central College (formerly the Central College of Commerce), and the Glasgow College of Nautical Studies in 2010. It closed when the new City of Glasgow College building on Cathedral Street opened in 2016. If approved by Glasgow City Council planners, the building will become the Glasgow Metropolitan Hotel with 640 bedrooms, a bar and restaurant, retail space, and conference and meeting area.
