CDA join Richard Murphy on Candleriggs Quarter design team
January 11 2017
The practices involvement comes following submission of a revised application for the consented scheme, after the acquisition of two additional parcels of land, enabling a continuous frontage to be created along both Trongate and Candleriggs.
As before a listed façade at 140-144 Trongate will be retained, with repairs made to the façade, windows and ironwork, with additional infill allowing an extra 63 private rented sector homes, four student rooms and extra ground floor retail space to be added to the mixed use scheme.
In a statement Richard Murphy Architects said: “We remain involved as executive architect and are dealing with the current and any future planning processes and are still fully involved in the strategic design. CDA are acting as delivery architect and we are working collaboratively to help our clients in achieving this ambitious project within suitable timescales.”
Candleriggs Quarter will encompass the near entirety of an urban block bounded by Hutcheson Street, Trongate, Candleriggs and Wilson Street with a façade of façade of precast concrete/reconstituted stone panels and solid timber doors below a metal clad steel frame and aluminium mesh panels.
The scheme will now deliver a total of 132 apartments for sale, 435 flats for private rent, a 124 bed hotel, 586 rooms of student accommodation and 750sq/m of retail space.
