APARTMENT Block With Rooftop Garden Proposed For Maryhill Gap Site

4 September, 2020 | Residential

PLANNERS are being asked to approve a residential development on vacant land in Maryhill.

Nevis Properties want to build 39 apartments at the corner of Kelbourne Street and Queen Margaret Drive.

The building would range from five to seven storeys and have an outdoor, rooftop amenity space.

Twenty-four of the properties would have two bedrooms and 15 would have three bedrooms. Each flat would have a recessed balcony.

A basement would be excavated to provide 27 car spaces. Vehicle access would be via two car lifts off Kelbourne Street.

The overgrown site was previously home to North Kelvinside Parish Church and is beside a playpark.

A design document submitted with the application states: “Acknowledging the site’s prominent corner location and gateway to the West End Conservation Area, development will improve visual amenity, safety and security within the park and reactivate the streetscape.”

It continues: “The existing derelict site will be cleared to facilitate the creation of a reinstated street edge and a vibrant, dynamic development promoting liveable urban density.”

The application is pending consideration by city planners.
