PLANNING Permission Sought For Woodlands Student Block

20 June, 2023 | Student Accommodation

How the development is expected to look

STUDENT accommodation specialist Alumno has applied to build a six-storey development in Woodlands.

The proposed building on St George’s Road would house 262 students in single en suite bedrooms with shared kitchens, and self-sufficient studio rooms.

Communal spaces would include a dining room, lounge and common study space on the fifth floor. There would be two landscaped courtyards.

The development, formerly occupied by a car showroom and garage, would also feature ground floor commercial units.

Permission was given in January 2019 for a six-storey building containing 65 flats at the site but was not progressed.

Alumno managing director David Campbell said: “In providing much-needed high-quality accommodation for Glasgow students, our overarching intention is to respect the diverse community of Woodlands and St George’s Cross and reconnect and repair the missing corner of St George’s Road, while reinforcing the character of the area and re-introducing the frontages at street level.”

The application is pending consideration by Glasgow City planners.
