Dandara Living adds student apartments to Anderston Quay proposals
Build-to-rent developer Dandara Living has submitted a fresh planning application for its proposed City Wharf development at Anderston Quay in Glasgow.
Located on a derelict site overlooking the Kingston Bridge, the application includes an alteration to the previous planning permission to deliver energy efficient apartments - and to also feature student accommodation.
Designed by Manson Architects, the proposed development will feature nearly 500 one, two and three-bedroom homes for rent and 490 student apartments, alongside units for commercial use. Associated amenities, located on the ground and first floors, will include a cycle hub, open plan gym, residents lounge and co-working spaces.
A new urban park for use by residents and the local community would be created.
There would also be private courtyard spaces and recreational areas available to residents with extensive planting and landscaping throughout.
Rachel Allwood, planning director of Dandara Living said: “Following a series of public consultations we believe our new application offers a terrific opportunity to create a development that reflects this unique and highly visible location.
“It also helps address the local authority’s desire to double the number of people living in the city centre by 2035 and deliver much-needed purpose built student accommodation, creating a more sustainable and vibrant city.”
