Derelict Shawbridge Arcade to be replaced by 71 flats
November 11 2022
Working with the Wheatley Group the practice propose to demolish the 1970s Shawbridge Arcade to erect eight new build blocks of up to five storeys, in addition to office space for Glasgow Housing Association.
In a stement Coltart Earley wrote: "The proposed new design ethos is underpinned by creating a new sense of place and ownership to Ashtree Road, Greenview Street and Toon Hoose Square. We look to achieve this by utilising a modern tenemental elevational proportion, robust material palette, and soft landscaping to create a more pleasant streetscape and amenity spaces.
"An active ground floor frontage onto Toon Hoose Square, provides activity to the historic town centre of Pollokshaws. The focal point corner block creates a focus of the design hierarchy at this crucial junction."
Seeking to repair the built environment the work includes soft landscaping to Greenview Street with parking limited to unallocated bays.
A separate planning application by Connecting Pollokshaws, a community group design team, will set out plans for landscaping an adjacent square.
