ARTISAN Real Estate has lodged a planning application for a multi-million pound development at a high-profile Merchant City gap site.
Situated at 65-97 Ingram Street on land currently being used as a car park, the proposal will feature four distinct buildings, ranging from four to six storeys, accommodating 109 apartments plus ground floor commercial space.
Central to the development design is the incorporation of communal landscaped roof gardens and terraces, and a publicly accessed landscaped garden courtyard.
The courtyard will feature raised planting beds comprising native pollinating species trees, lawns, plots to grow vegetables, bird boxes and bee keeping.
Specialist landscaped designers are creating plans for a rich, natural experience for both residents and visitors with natural pathways, specialist lighting and seating areas. The design will also include public artwork sympathetic to the site’s historic setting and conservation trail, as well as aligning with the existing Merchant City Art Trail.
A spokesperson for Artisan Real Estate said: “Incorporating the garden terraces and courtyard was something we were really keen to introduce to the city to showcase what can be achieved in a strong urban setting and offer potential residents something truly unique.
“Glasgow, and many UK cities are actively encouraging people to embrace city centre living and we need to create inspirational spaces for that to be successful.”
Designed by architects AMA studio, the properties will include a range of one, two and three-bedroom options.
No car parking spaces are proposed however residents will be provided with secure bikes spaces and access to the city car club.
The ground floor commercial space will accommodate up to four separate units suitable for a range of work, retail or café uses.
