PLANS to convert a fire-damaged former care home into luxury flats have been given the go-ahead.
Glasgow City Council officials have agreed that 18 apartments can be created at the former Queen Mary Eventide Home, 52 Queen Mary Avenue, Queen’s Park, under a proposal by Regina Developments.
The car-free development will comprise a mixture of one, two and three-bedroom flats.
The care home had more than 50 bedrooms and closed in 2013. The structure suffered fire damage several years ago.
It was originally a large house. A four-storey extension was added in the 1970s as part of the change of use to a residential institution.
A design document included with the application stated: “All of the apartments will be finished to a very high standard and will have the benefit of unique architectural features due to the varying styles of the building, ceiling heights and mixture of feature glazing, private external spaces.
“The development will attract a mixture of couples, families and single dwellers due to the varying apartment layouts and amenities available.
“Overall the development will be an asset to the local area and a sought-after address in Queen’s Park.”
