PLAN To Replace Empty Office Block With Flats

30 March, 2023 | News

A MAJOR development is being proposed at a large high-profile site in Cowcaddens.

Former transport headquarters Buchanan House on Port Dundas Road would be replaced with flats under the plan.

A proposal of application notice (PAN) has been submitted to Glasgow City Council with public consultation due to take place in April.

The building would be deconstructed, meaning it would be dismantled in such a way that the materials could be reused.

The developers state: “The proposals involve the replacement of the now-vacant, 1960s Buchanan House office block, and the redevelopment of the site with a residential-led, mixed use development, set within a framework of new public realm and soft landscaping.

“The proposals will include flatted residential development (with a mix of build-to-rent and private for-sale flats), with supporting ancillary uses on the ground floor, fronting Port Dundas Road.

“These could include small-scale retail, café, flexible working spaces, or a flexible community-oriented space.

“The development would dovetail with the council’s ‘Avenues Project’ proposals for Port Dundas Road.”
