DEVELOPER Nixon Blue says it remains committed to progressing residential development at a former bowling club in Finnieston.
The company released a statement after withdrawing its latest application for Corunna Bowling Club in St Vincent Crescent just days before it was due to be considered by councillors.
Nixon Blue, which owns the site, confirmed it is working with Glasgow-based firm PagePark Architects on new proposals. The team is “reviewing feedback to meet the needs of the local community” with plans to resubmit proposals in the New Year.
Nixon Blue director and architect Colin McIntyre said: “Our decision to withdraw the application is to look again at our proposals in light of comments from the local community and the city’s planning officers.
“The process allows us to address concerns and we want to work in partnership to create a development that meets multiple needs.
“Our architectural and landscape team are working to put forward the best proposal for this site and for the city.
“We remain committed to bringing a high-quality development which is proportionate and complements the location as well as offering a public garden that can be enjoyed by all residents.
“We believe that by investing significantly into this site, we will transform a semi-derelict piece of land into high-quality new homes in a thriving part of the city.”
Planning officials had recommended that councillors refuse the application.
Around 230 objections had been received from members of the public, politicians and organisations, including The Architectural Society of Scotland. There had also been around 30 letters of support.
A previous application by Nixon Blue for 39 flats in a nine-storey block at the site was refused last year.
