Trongate on the up
April 22 2009
Planning documents submitted to the council by RMJM suggest that the partially derelict site could be rejuvenated via the insertion of a ten storey box to terminate the Brunswick Street vista.
Extensive demolition would clear the site of the present dilapidated builds which have been stripped internally of any architectural value, retaining only a B listed façade. The classical grid of this façade informs the grid of the new with architectural detail subtly imprinted upon the glass and aluminium spandrels of adjoining new build.
Costed at £6m the scheme will provide ground level retail space and see improvements made to the dank “Old Wynd”.
