PLANNING permission is being sought for 155 apartments plus retail space at a high-profile corner site in Finnieston
Ambassador Living’s West Avenue development is proposed for the corner of Finnieston Street and Minerva Street.
The flats would be built on the car park that currently serves two large retail units — Lidl and the former PC World premises, now vacant. The empty unit would be knocked down and a car park for Lidl created on that land.
The Lidl building would be refurbished and provided with new frontage, towards Finnieston Street.
The development would be made up of one, two and three-bedroom apartments. There would be seven retail and leisure units on the ground floor. Public realm improvements are also included.
Gordon Coster, managing director of Ambassador Living, said: “Finnieston is perhaps one of the most sought-after areas of Glasgow right now.
“The location of our West Avenue development is in a prime position to become the cornerstone of the thriving neighbourhood.
“Our plans reflect modern living with a sympathetic nod to the site’s history, bringing it back to its former glory and becoming a beacon as you enter into the popular West End.”
Mr Coster added: “We are excited by our proposals and confident we can breathe new life into this area of Finnieston, transforming it into something pretty special for the people of Glasgow to be proud of. We look forward to working with Glasgow City Council as our plans move forward.”
