RESIDENTIAL Plan For Rundown Historic Building

14 January, 2023 | Listed / Historic Buildings

PROPOSALS to ‘sensitively restore’ a large B-listed building in central Glasgow have been submitted to Glasgow City Council.

Developer Detail Residential wants to convert the dilapidated former police headquarters and district court in Turnbull Street into 45 apartments “providing stylish contemporary living”.

There would be flats and duplexes, ranging from one-bedroom units through to four-bedroom.

There would be a communal central garden. It would be a car-free development.

A design document included with the planning application states: “The aim of this proposal is to create a high quality piece of conservation architecture.

“Internally the building is in a very poor state. There are missing floors, failing joists, collapsed ceilings and general rubble spread in all rooms.

“All existing finishes are dilapidated and past a state of repair.”

The building was designed by A B McDonald and opened in 1906.

The application is pending consideration by city planners.
