March 22 2011
It will see existing buildings demolished, save for a B listed façade on West Nile Street, demolished in order to make way for a mixed use development of ten retail units, a restaurant and 49 flats.
Finished in blonde sandstone with zinc cladding the Buchanan St elevation rises to a six storey “sail” detail which flairs out, slightly, between the second and fourth floors.
An east west through route will grant pedestrians direct access between Buchanan Street and West Nile Street and will be delineated by feature three storey shop fronts.
Work on the BDP designed scheme will start almost immediately and is scheduled for completion in 2013.
