£150m Shawlands Arcade regeneration bid hits planning
September 12 2022
Detailed plans have been prepared for the redevelopment of the Shawlands Arcade in Glasgow, ushering in a new era for the South Side neighbourhood.
The £150m regeneration plan by Haus Collective calls for the 1960s retail development to be swept aside in favour of hundreds of new homes above ground floor shops.
330 apartments are planned by Clydebuilt LP, a partnership between Strathclyde Pension Fund and Ediston Real Estate, with a pledge to retain half the land area as public open space. Communal landscaped roof gardens and terraces will also be provided for residents.
Neal Jamieson, director of Ediston Real Estate said: “We are pleased to submit plans for a viable alternative to the existing Arcade. Having consulted with the community over the past year, we know that replacement of the current dated complex is much wanted. The proposed balance of housing and retail uses has been carefully considered to ensure a regeneration that is realistic and deliverable.”
Jonny McDonald, chair of My Shawlands Business Improvement District added: “The existing Arcade is increasingly detracting from the overall town centre and it’s been a long-held aspiration of My Shawlands to see it replaced.”
The planning application has been brought forward by Haus Collective.
I get that people will worry about the impact on their ability to park their car near to their close when they drive back from Morrisons to carry the shopping up the stairs but it's difficult to see how these objections are anything more than blatant poor me NIMBYism... or more accurately Not Across the Road From Me ism... NARFMism? Potato/tomato.
