235 apartments proposed near Glasgow’s High Street station
Plans are in the pipeline for a mixed-use development including 235 apartments for a large vacant site beside Glasgow’s High Street station.
Vastint Hospitality hopes to transform the vacant plot at the former goods yards at Collegelands.
An eight-storey office block, which would include a cafe/co-working spaces at ground floor level, as well as space for small business users and start-ups and landscaping will also be included in an application to be submitted to Glasgow City Council.
Under the proposals, the apartments would be within three stepped towers and would include shared facilities such as residents’ lounges and a gym.
Vastint Hospitality stated: “Since completion of the Moxy Hotel in early 2019, Vastint Hospitality has been working closely with the Glasgow City Council to identify the optimum mix of development, routes and new public realm to complete the Western edge of the Collegelands masterplan, providing new apartments for rent, office, commercial and ground floor amenities facing high quality public and private amenity spaces.
“The proposals aim to transform this former industrial land into a coherent piece of city.”
The developer added: “The towers are linked by colonnade structures at ground level which provide residents with sheltered access to shared amenity areas.
“Façade treatments will be developed to reflect the industrial heritage of the area.”
