NEARLY 80 flats are being proposed for a site close to Glasgow Royal Infirmary and the Necropolis cemetery.
Calmont Group has drawn up plans for a seven-storey build-to-rent apartment block on Wishart Street.
Consultation has started ahead of a planning application being submitted.
There would be 79 flats, mainly comprised of one-bed units along with a number of studio apartments and some larger two-bed corner flats.
Amenity and co-working space would be provided on the ground floor and there would also be a roof terrace, landscaped gardens and and extensive private balconies.
The development’s consultation website states: “This type of housing is intended to deliver much-needed affordable and flexible private rental flats, fully furnished and of varying lengths of tenancy and is particularly suited to the demographic of key workers in the hospital and to more general inner city urban living.”
