BROOMIELAW Student Housing Plan Would Save Glasgow City Mission Premises

30 May, 2024 | Office, Student Accommodation

PLANS to use a site on Glasgow’s Broomielaw for purpose-built student accommodation instead of offices have been announced.

Developer and operator Valeo Management Europe is proposing approximately 500 student rooms, and ground floor commercial space, on Carrick Street. The complex would be run by its operating arm LIV Student.

The brownfield site is currently home to the vacant office headquarters of GAP Group.

The proposal would retain, and integrate into the design, the modern Glasgow City Mission building, pictured above, which had been earmarked for demolition as part of previous plans for a 14-storey office block on the site.

A proposal of application Notice (PAN) has been submitted to Glasgow City Council, starting the 12-week minimum pre-application statutory consultation period.

The first of two consultation events will take place on 18 June from 3pm to 7pm at Box Hub on Washington Street.

David Saunders, managing director, Valeo Management Europe, said: “We are delighted to bring forward plans for new purpose-built student accommodation in Glasgow City Centre.

“The Broomielaw and wider River Clyde Waterfront is undergoing significant transformation, and we hope that our plans will go somewhere to supporting this transition as well as providing much needed student rooms in Glasgow.

“We look forward to engaging with local residents and other interested parties over the coming months as we develop our exciting new plans for Carrick Street.”

Full details of the proposals will be available to view on the project website.
