PERMISSION Sought For Huge Flats And Student Accommodation Development

29 September, 2023 | Student Accommodation, In Pictures, Major Developments

DETAILED plans for hundreds of flats and nearly 1,000 student rooms at Anderston have been submitted for approval.

Summix Capital is proposing 410 apartments for sale and a 934-capacity student complex at its Central Quay site, between Warroch Street and Hydepark Street.

The site has lain derelict for over half a century. Land to the east, beside the M8 motorway is the subject of proposals for around 670 flats for rent.

The plot beside the river at Central Quay features a 498-flat build-to-rent scheme that is nearing completion

There would also be ground level commercial units including food /drink and retail uses, plus landscaping and public realm.

If the proposals are approved by Glasgow planners, it is anticipated that work would begin on site with Plot A — the student element at the north end — in early 2024.

This residential building would feature cladding consisting of black and white ceramic panels arranged in a checkerboard pattern to represent the China white and basalt black glazed ceramic objects that were typically made in the area. The checkerboard design also references weaving patterns that would have been common to the area

A design document included with the application states: “The development site provides an exciting opportunity to remaster a prominent and strategic part of Glasgow city centre.

“The proposed urban strategy for Central Quay draws on the site’s unique history and context to create a new truly mixed-use neighbourhood for living, learning and working within the context of a former industrial setting.”
