First phase Collegelands works top out
April 7 2011
Collegelands is intended to heal the fractured cityscape around the historic High Street spine of the city and reconnect the city centre with Tollcross via a series of distinctive red brick structures.
With a final bill running to £200m shouldered by Glasgow City Council and Dawn Construction Group the scheme will provide 240 student flats, a 200 bed hotel, 100,000sq/ft of office space and a 1,100 space multi storey car park.
Page/Park explain this diversity of use as a deliberate attempt to: “…overcome the danger of monolithic single use developments.”
A green pedestrian corridor complete with feature fountains and garden areas is also planned for land straddling the Drumgelloch rail line following the course of the long forgotten Molendinar Burn.
Completion of phase one is timetabled for later in the year.
