FURTHER Bid To Build Apartments At Glasgow Police Station Site

16 December, 2023 | News

How the development is expected to look

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 previous proposal for 78 flats was refused in 2021, a decision later upheld on appeal.

How the development is expected to look

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.
