PLANNERS are being asked to approve four mews houses at a site in North Kelvinside.
Park Living (Residential) Ltd has applied to develop an area behind 157 Queen Margaret Drive, accessed through a pend.
Light industrial buildings on the site, that may originally have been stables, would be cleared.
A design statement submitted by architects Atelier-M as part of the application explains: “It is the aspiration to create a residential development that will create a co-habitat spirit for the residents that will allow for demographic diversity and adaptability / flexibility of the dwellings, whether it be for professionals, young families or middle-aged downsizers that want to live in the West End of the city with private and shared spaces for social interaction and to live in a development with sustainable and ecological considerations.”
It continues: “Atelier-M’s approach to the design of this project has been to create a unique small residential development that could transform a hidden part of the city and hopefully create a sustainable community for its residents.
“The dwellings have been designed with a flavour of a light industrial past suitable for its location but also acknowledge influences from further afield.
“The existing boundary walls are to be retained and it is hoped that the original slates, bricks and the cobbles could be re-used within the development.”
The application is pending assessment by Glasgow City planners.
