Coltart Earley have designs on Partick
Coltart Earley have submitted a substantial residential scheme to Glasgow’s planners on behalf of Partick Works Ltd, the local housing association.

Located between Yorkhill Park and Ferry Road the scheme will provide 87 flats together with landscaping work to the adjoining park at a cost of £11m.

Faced in black, grey and white brick together with copper coloured cladding on feature fins and upper levels the scheme is intended to elevate the architectural standard of an area mired in derivative design.

Split into four blocks of five storeys each has balconies and roof terraces integrated into the design, which was informed through discussions with Strathclyde police’s architectural liaison officer.
A public walkway will be relocated to provide an additional buffer between public and private space

What a load of bollocks... "Split into four blocks of five storeys each has balconies and roof terraces integrated into the design, which was informed through discussions with Strathclyde police’s architectural liaison officer. " Pardon the scheme was designed by a cop!?

Where is the proportion, scale, sensitivity- nothing I see here makes this a landmark project.

...I sense someone had to write somthing on the planning application and this is the nonsense they came up with for this scheme.

If you think that's bad you should see the previous submission!

Secured by Design gies me the dry boak, this is more mire for Partick. Take it the proximity of Zaha's what's so distinctly raised the game.
