IN Pictures — Glasgow’s New High-Rise Student Block Complete With Rooftop ‘Crown’

2 October, 2021 | Student Accommodation

THE 20-storey student accommodation building at the corner of Cathedral Street and North Hanover Street is nearing completion.

The block has 422 rooms and a variety of amenities including a rooftop terrace, quiet zones and relaxation rooms, a private dining area and karaoke booths.

Operated by new accommodation provider Novel, the facility has been named Bridle Works after Joan Kathleen Harding Eardley, a Glasgow School of Art graduate famous for painting bridled oxen and horses.

Planning permission was given four years ago for the development and, as reported previously, construction started in June 2019.

At the time planning officials noted that the structure would have a “crown-like object” on the roof “paying respect to the interesting roof-top designs” of the neighbouring modernist buildings of the former College of Building and Printing and Charles Oakley building.
