Edinburgh based Hackland+Dore Architects have submitted £4.5m plans for 33 student flats at Argyle Street at the junction of Old Dumbarton Road. Replacing a former petrol station (and St Enoch's United FC church) the development aims to sympathetically reflect the solid/void proportions of neighbouring tenements and will incorporate ground floor retail. The scheme will be clad in a mixture of blonde sandstone and red brick.
St Enoch's United FC was demolished between 1966-71
