SIXTY-two flats plus commercial units are being proposed for the site of a former Glasgow police station.
The redundant Cranstonhill police office would be demolished and replaced with a five/six-storey block under the plan by Westpoint Homes.
There would be a mixture of one, two and three-bedroom apartments, and six commercial units on the ground floor.
A design document submitted with the new application states: “The site marks the junction of three major routes –- Argyle Street, St Vincent Street and Finnieston Street. It is highly prominent and provides a real opportunity for a landmark building that extends the scale, urban fabric, domestic and commercial elements of the adjacent blocks.
“The design of the building presents a simple, crisp modern aesthetic with large glazed areas. The building is unique and designed specifically for this site.
“The design aims to create a contemporary tenement with a controlled elegance that sits well in the context of the surrounding tenements. A high quality, robust palette of materials will be used throughout.
The application is pending consideration by city planners.
