CONSULTATION is underway over plans for co-living studios at the historic former Prince And Princess Of Wales Hospice site in Glasgow.
Third Line Studio is proposing to submit applications for planning permission and listed building consent to Glasgow City Council.
The developer wants to convert the B-listed building at 65-73 Carlton Place, demolish structures to the rear and build a four-storey extension.
A statement on the consultation website explains: “The development would deliver up to 155 co-living studio apartments across the Grade B Listed building and the new building.
“The studio apartments will range from approximately 22 to 26 sqm. The proposal includes provision of high-quality amenity spaces including communal internal and external amenity space, a rooftop terrace and private amenity spaces.
“The provision of onsite shared amenity facilities seeks to create a crucial sense of community and inclusivity for residents.
“Co-living development comprises purpose-built, managed rental blocks of studio apartments, which offers social living space with shared amenity facilities for residents under a single, professional management arrangement.
“Located on the banks of the River Clyde, the proposed use will attract an intergenerational range of key workers, temporary workers, recent graduates and young professionals.”
It continues: “The existing Category B building will be sensitively refurbished and the scale and massing of the proposed extension will respect the surrounding site context.
“The provision of a ground floor commercial unit in addition to the residential use on upper floors will activate the street frontage and improve the overall vitality and safety of the area.”
Planning permission was granted in July 2020 for the use of the hospice as 28 flats plus construction of 82 holiday letting rooms and gymnasium.
