Third time lucky for Great Western Road?
Crème Developments have submitted modifications to their long stalled plans to develop a block of flats on the site of a former petrol station on Great Western Road, Glasgow.

The firm has applied to build an additional four homes on top of the forty five flats approved previously. These would be slotted into a new rooftop penthouse space, set back from the main body of the sandstone clad block.

The rest of the £4.2m scheme remains as before and would be built over five floors and incorporates a ground floor commercial space.

Designed by Elder & Cannon Architects it incorporates a landscaped amenity deck with timbered louvres employed to screen residents on the rear balustrade.

The first iteration of the scheme hit headwinds over controversy surrounding the felling of a lime tree.

Cheeky so-and-sos - this seems to be creeping back to pretty much the same building that was knocked back in 2010! As I recall residents were also up in arms about the height, specifically the top two storeys popping up above the established tenement eaves line. Which have now sneaked back in! Surely all the decking in the world isn't going to hide them...
