Revised plans submitted for Glasgow flats
Gosal Properties has submitted revised plans to convert an empty B-listed Glasgow city centre building into serviced apartments.
The developers hope to deliver 14 one-bedroom apartments on the upper floors of 125 Douglas Street.
Glasgow City Council refused a previous application to build 15 apartments at the site last year. However, the revised plan hopes to address the council’s concerns by reducing the number of apartments and carrying out the conversion without losing any of the internal walls, ReGlasgow reports.
Gosal Properties has also submitted a management plan and devised alternative waste disposal arrangements.
A statement submitted by Bennett Developments and Consulting reads: “The proposed development will see the re‐cycling of tis vacant office building into quality serviced apartments. In addition, the proposed new use will ensure that this fine example of Georgian architecture is protected and nurtured.
“The design and layout of the apartments has been sympathetically addressed to retain and respect the room layout and spaces, ensuring that the quality of the original layout is retained, in particular the front apartments where the elegant front elevation establishes the heritage of the building.
“The management regime which is proposed, is a tried and tested one within the company’s other properties within the city and is aimed at maintaining quality accommodation through a robust programme of servicing, cleaning and maintenance ensuring that the visitor has an enjoyable experience while visiting the city.”
