RESIDENTIAL plans for former school buildings on Glasgow’s South Side have been submitted to the city council.
The properties on Hamilton Avenue at St Andrews Drive, Pollokshields, were part of the Craigholme campus which closed in 2019.
A design statement explains: “The site is a former independent school comprising a series of 19th century stone-built residential villas, linked together by modern (1960’s) extensions.
“The application seeks to convert the existing school buildings into a residential development of large villas and duplex apartments.
“It is proposed to retain and restore the original domestic buildings and demolish the majority of the later additions to return the building group to its original residential use, creating substantial villas and duplex apartments with associated garden/ shared amenity space and parking.”
The document continues: “The ownership of the site of the former school is split between a north plot and a south plot. This application gives details of the design proposals for the south plot only, the north plot being the subject of a separate application by others.”
If approved by planners there would be two villas, six duplexes and one one-bedroom apartment.
