PLANS have been drawn up to transform unused attic space in a B-listed Glasgow City Centre building into office accommodation.

Dunaskin Properties have applied for permission for the changes at Baltic Chambers, Cadogan Street.

The project would include creation of a new ground floor lobby space accessed off Cadogan Street with a lift to the attic.

The attic currently

Baltic Chambers is mostly divided into small and medium-sized spaces with a wide variety of uses and tenants over six floors, each about 1,000 square metres.

A design statement by McGinlay Bell Architects explains: “The existing attic space is an open plan volume of 950 square metres and provides an opportunity for a single user adding another layer to the variety of space and tenant within Baltic Chambers.

“The basis of the scheme is to take a found space and transform it to provide a high-quality, environmentally responsible flexible volume.

“The architectural approach is a hybrid of conversion and weaving old and new.”

The statement continues: “While the character and amenity of the building will be enhanced, the proposals outlined represent a positive development within the city centre, which will help maintain its status as a business destinationwhile also enhancing the built environment.”

The proposals are pending assessment by city planners.
