CALA spearheads Jordanhill housing drive
Housebuilder CALA is spearheading a housing-led masterplan for Strathclyde University’s former Jordanhill Campus with the submission of plans to convert historic buildings on the 31-acre site alongside new build accommodation.

Centred on the B-listed David Stow building, which will be converted to luxury apartments alongside Graham House and Douglas House, the scheme will deliver more than 400 new homes while retaining 40 per cent of the grounds as open green space.

Ewan Anderson, managing partner at 7N Architects, commented: “The landscape is what makes the site special and is at the heart of our plans. The streets and spaces have been designed so they engage with the parkland setting and provide a safe place to walk, cycle and play whilst maximising the extraordinary views available from the site.
 
“Also central to our plans are the existing historic buildings. These will be sensitively restored and converted to preserve the significant character of the site and deliver an exemplary residential development that the city can be proud of.”

Playing fields and woodland will be enhanced as part of this work with new public access with streets and spaces prioritised for pedestrian use.
Properties will range from one-bedroom flats through to detached family homes

Mrs Miggin's at no4 near to reign in her plant pots. Just wait till she get her Christmas light up..
Looks ok, but a bit of a photocopy montage job of other flat roofed, brick projects...in elevation and in plan. Big old grey upper floor routine to the apartments is way past its sell by date.
