Finnieston student block externally complete
Work to erect a new student housing block on Glasgow’s Argyle Street has reached external completion just one year after being approved.

Designed by Yeoman McAllister Architects on behalf of MacDonald Estates the scheme is intended to bulk up a prominent junction, formerly occupied by a showroom, to provide 15 individual flats and 75 bed spaces.

High quality natural stone, brick and slate have been specified for the high profile plot, which abuts a line of listed tenements and the Sandyford Henderson memorial Church.

Ground floor retail units are also provided.
Brick is used on the Kelvinhaugh Street elevation.

Nice and an improvement on what was there. I do question how many flats the area (including Yorkhill) can take and how sustainable it is.
