CITY planners have yet another application for student accommodation in Glasgow City Centre to consider.
Dominus Glasgow Ltd want to develop a gap site at the corner of Osborne Street and Old Wynd, just south of Trongate.
A design document submitted with their proposal states: “The proposed development will create transformational change to this cleared brownfield site and contribute towards a vibrant evolving city quarter.
“It will provide high quality student accommodation totalling 211 rooms with an outward-facing amenity space at ground and first floor to create active frontages and a vibrant sense of place along Old Wynd and Osborne Street.”
Planning permission was granted for a 12-storey hotel on the site in July 2019, but the developers state: “Since then, the emerging context around the site has undergone substantial evolution, with a number of major schemes, including the King Street development to the south, due to come forward.
“The proposal for student accommodation has followed a reconsideration of the appropriateness of the previous scheme in light of the changes to the surrounding context, as well as Glasgow’s socio-economic repositioning.”
