Therme Group, a global developer and operator of wellbeing destinations, has confirmed plans to develop Therme Scotland at Peel L&P’s Glasgow Waters.
Located on a waterfront site in Glasgow, known as Glasgow Waters, the £100m project will be constructed on Peel L&P’s 21.5-acre site, which is adjacent to the Riverside Museum.
Therme Scotland is expected to cover approximately 320,000 square feet. Therme Group aims to submit a planning application for the wellness resort to Glasgow City Council in 2022.
“The primary purpose of Therme projects is to benefit the communities they serve,” said Stelian Iacob, senior VP of Therme Group and CEO of Therme Group UK.
Therme’s second UK location
“This is achieved both as a direct result of the Therme experience and by acting as a catalyst for wider activities around biodiversity, cultural inclusion, urban greening and more.”
“Therme projects are also key drivers of post-Covid economic, social and environmental recovery,” he added. “Therme Scotland will create a fun and accessible experience with profound health and wellbeing benefits for all.”
The attraction will boast a next-generation indoor water park, as well as extensive thermal pools and spa, and a health and wellbeing centre. It will also feature botanical gardens and a vertical farm for growing sustainable produce.
In addition, Therme Group is exploring the introduction of renewable heat sources, and is considering using geothermal energy and water source heat pumps.
Therme Scotland will be Therme’s second wellbeing destination in the UK after the £250 million Therme Manchester project, which is also located on a site owned by Peel L&P.
Therme expanding across globe
“This significant health and wellbeing destination will be a unique and sustainable addition to Glasgow Waters, Peel L&P’s major waterfront regeneration project,” said James Whittaker, executive director of development at Peel L&P.
“This important facility on the Clydeside, adjacent to Peel L&P’s existing and proposed developments, will benefit the whole region as well as attracting visitors from further afield to come and enjoy Glasgow.”
“Therme Scotland will be an exciting visitor attraction and bring investment into the area,” he added. “We look forward to working with Therme Group and engaging with local communities and public authorities to progress the design and delivery of Therme Glasgow.”
Therme Group is also developing a $350m wellness theme park in NYC, as well as a C$350m wellbeing resort at Toronto’s Ontario Place in Canada
