PORT Dundas Site Lined Up For Student Accommodation

12 March, 2024 | Student Accommodation

THE stampede to build student accommodation in Glasgow has spread north of the city centre to Port Dundas.

A development providing 454 student bed spaces in two blocks is being proposed for part of the former Port Dundas Distillery site at Borron Street.

Demolition of the disused premises on the land took place in January.

A design document included with a planning application submitted to Glasgow City Council states: “The project will deliver a vibrant, inclusive, comfortable, and sustainable living environment for students.

“The design will foster a sense of community, promote well-being, and provide various opportunities for social interaction and relaxation.

“The development will allow for a diverse student population and will consider their needs for privacy, study, and recreation.”

The application is pending consideration by council planners.

Major residential development is underway on other parts of the Dundashill site.
