The Kelvin Hall is one of Glasgow's leading sports and museum venues
Parts of Glasgow's historic Kelvin Hall could be used for storage under plans being considered by the city council.
The proposal is one of several to address vacant space at the site once the Transport Museum decants to its new home on the banks of the River Clyde.
Other options include doing nothing or mothballing the entire building.
The council review of the venue places in doubt the original plan for it to host boxing matches as part of the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
A report going before the city council's executive committee on Thursday highlights five proposals for developing the site once the Transport Museum moves.
The first option is to "do nothing" beyond the basic maintenance of the building, which was built in 1927.
The transport collection will move to the Riverside Museum in 2011
Option two would see minimum work being carried out to bring the venue up to standard as a boxing venue for the 2014 games.
A third proposal incorporates the measures outlined in option two, with additional work to develop a better community sports facility than exists at present.
Some of the vacant space would also be used as a storage facility for Glasgow Museums collections, with no public access.
The fourth option would involve a partnership with Glasgow University to further develop the site.
This would see a storage facility developed to house collections from Glasgow Museums and the university.
The sports facility would also be enhanced for use by the public and the university.
The report states that option four would be "more likely to attract funding from bodies such as the Heritage Lottery Fund".
The final option, to close or mothball the building, is presented as the least favourable course of action.
The report states this would "represent a significant loss of amenity" to the area and have a negative impact on the Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery and the Riverside Museum, scheduled to open in 2011.
Councillors will be asked to commit £85,000 towards developing options three and four with the aim of making an initial application for funding to the Heritage Lottery Fund.
