PLANNERS have agreed that vacant Glasgow City Centre offices can be knocked down and replaced with a massive ‘residential serviced living development’.
Artisan Real Estate has been given permission for the development at the corner of St Vincent Street at Pitt Street.
The building will have 248 studio apartments.
A statement with their planning application explained: “Artisan wants to deliver development on this key city centre site as the building is now empty, and see residential serviced living as a deliverable response.
“Crosslane has been secured as an operator partner by Artisan to deliver this.”
The statement continues: “Residential serviced living is a new type of fully furnished residential accommodation.
“For the residents it provides a hassle-free format with all-inclusive rents, a focus on creating a vibrant work/life hub and a sense of community within a well-designed building.
“It also offers a wealth of shared facilities, amenities, activities and services to create a more fulfilling, connected and affordable lifestyle for young professionals.”
There will be a publicly accessible cafe/bar, reception area, co-work space, a cinema/multi-function room and a gym and wellness studio, plus rooftop amenity space.
