REVISED Residential Plan For Gallowgate Commercial Plot

5 December, 2022 | News

A NEW bid is being made to build flats at a Calton site currently occupied by a shop, a takeaway, a pub and an old engineering workshop.

A planning application has been submitted for land surrounded by the Graham Square apartment buildings on the Gallowgate.

How the new proposal is expected to look

If approved, a four-storey block containing 20 apartments would replace several shop units, the Wee Mans Bar and the former workshop of butcher equipment suppliers MacNaughton & Watson.

How the previous proposal, which was refused, was expected to look

Permission was previously sought for 42 flats and two shops but was rejected for various reasons, including overdevelopment.

The revised proposal would have 12 one-bedroom flats and eight with two bedrooms, each with a balcony. There would be a pend through to a rear courtyard with 22 parking spaces.

A statement including with the application explains: “The design of the block is envisaged as a contemporary interpretation of the traditional four-storey Glasgow tenement.

“The site…remains the only undeveloped site nestling between two modern housing association developments of a quality design.

“We have adjusted the quality of the aesthetics of the design to arrive at a solution we feel is more characteristic of the Gallowgate frontage as it exists today.”

The proposal is pending consideration by city planners.
