Yorkhill student residences planned
February 1 2011
Designed by Edinburgh based Fletcher Joseph architects the £15m brick clad development will replace the derelict timber built Kelvin School.
Rising to six storeys the development completes a tenemental block, reinforcing the surrounding streetscape.
It will accommodate gated pedestrian access from Yorkhill St through to Nairn St, acting as a visual break in the building line. This route passes through a semi private courtyard space, together with a social lounge built into the stepped site with a landscaped green roof
Watkin Jones recently began work on another substantial west end student residential scheme on Thurso Street.
