PERMISSION Sought For Nearly 1,000 Flats And Student Apartments

25 April, 2023 | Major Developments

BUILD-to-rent developer Dandara Living has submitted new plans to Glasgow City Council for its proposed City Wharf development at Anderston Quay.

The application, for a derelict site beside the Kingston Bridge, is for nearly 500 one, two and three bedroom homes for rent and 490 student apartments alongside units for commercial use.

Amenities, located on the ground and first floors, would include a cycle hub, large open plan gym, residents’ lounge, and co-working spaces with views onto the River Clyde.

A new urban park for use by residents and the local community would be created.

There would also be private courtyard spaces and recreational areas available to residents with extensive planting and landscaping throughout.

Rachel Allwood, planning director of Dandara Living said: “Following a series of public consultations we believe our new application offers a terrific opportunity to create a development that reflects this unique and highly visible location.

“It also helps address the local authority’s desire to double the number of people living in the city centre by 2035 and deliver much-needed purpose built student accommodation, creating a more sustainable and vibrant city.”

Another massive mixed rental and student scheme is being lined up for adjacent land at Central Quay.

Meanwhile, work on a separate development by Platform_ comprising nearly 500 rental flats beside the Dandara site is well advanced.

Proposals are also being drawn up for hundreds of flats on the site of the former Snodgrass Flour Mill, east of the Kingston Bridge, currently a car park.
