ANOTHER attempt is being made to secure permission for development of a vacant site in Finnieston.
HJV Consultants have again applied to build a block with 14 apartments and two ground floor commercial units at 1017 Argyle Street, opposite Kent Road.
Two previous proposals have been refused, although the more recent one was recommended for approval for planners only to be voted down by city councillors.
The main issues raised by those opposed centred on materials not matching the local conservation area and concern over scale.
New designs have now been submitted with the applicant saying the top floor has been set further back and the height reduced,
The top floor penthouse would be highly glazed to give “a more reflective glass appearance”.
Other changes include the balconies projecting less on Argyle Street and the street elevations changed to stone and set flush to align with the neighbouring building line.
An application for 19 flats and two commercial units at the site was refused in 2019.
