FLATS Conversion Of Empty Anniesland Offices Proposed

18 September, 2020 | Residential, Office

PARTICK Housing Association has submitted a planning application to turn vacant offices into flats.

The proposals, drawn up by MAST Architects, involve converting the upper floors of a four-storey building on Great Western Road at Anniesland Cross.

If approved by Glasgow City Council officials, 17 affordable flats would be provided for social rent, comprising 11 one-bedroom flats and six two-bedroom flats.

This offices have been empty for a number of years in an area surrounded by existing commercial and residential properties.

The location boasts excellent access to local shops, services, amenities and public transport.

Housing association chief executive Stewart MacKenzie said: “At Partick Housing Association, we’re committed to a programme of providing more high quality and affordable homes which are much-needed within Glasgow’s West End.

“We’re delighted to be working with partners in Anniesland, bringing this building back to life and meeting local housing needs.”

Another empty Anniesland office building — the former job centre on Herschell Street — is already lined up for residential conversion by housebuilder Mactaggart and Mickel.
