BID To Breathe New Life Into ‘A’-Listed Ex-Ambulance Headquarters

23 May, 2024 | News

PLANS have been drawn up as the first phase towards bringing an empty category A-listed building in central Glasgow back into use.

Acorn Property Group have applied for permission to make changes at the former Scottish Ambulance Service premises in Maitland Street, Cowcaddens.

Following refurbishment, it’s expected that managed workspaces will be created on upper floors.

The ground floor would have two large commercial units each served by former ambulance garage access openings.

A mezzanine floor would be formed and there would also be a roof terrace.

A conservation statement submitted to planners explains: “This category A listed building is a unique and possibly the final example of the pioneering work built by Skinner, Bailey & Lubetkin- an English architectural practice with a Scottish sub-base which grew out of the internationally renowned and pioneering architectural practice, The Tecton Group.

“Proposals consist of both careful repair and conservation-based replacement of the significant external and internal fabric.

“The proposals primarily are the important initial phase in adaptive repair of this historic structure. Reflecting the current property market these works will assist the longevity of the existing significant parts of the external fabric – whilst via a market study an appropriate end use is found.”
