BAM Properties to stage public exhibition for “landmark” Glasgow plans
BAM Properties are to hold a public exhibition in the Lighthouse on Friday, May 20 from 12:00 to 20:00 in order to showcase their plans for a “landmark building” at 110 Queen Street.

The event will invite members of the public to pass comment and opinion on the initial proposals drawn up by architects Cooper Cromar, part of the pre-application process required before a formal planning submission can be made.

An existing decayed concrete structure on a prominent junction opposite the Gallery of Modern Art will be demolished to make way for the plans, which call for a purpose built mixed use development incorporating retail and office space.

Michael Smart, Development Director, (Scotland and North of England), BAM Properties, said of the “exciting” project: “It’s a great opportunity to replace an uninspiring building developed back in the sixties into a modern building which will greatly enhance the visual impact of this prime area.”

A planning application is likely to be lodged by the end of the summer.

With the exception of the GoMA this is by far the most interesting building on Queen St. I walk past it most days and it always catches my eye. I especially like the way it transitions from the higher buildings of Ingram St to the lower buildings forming Royal Exchange Sq. Why replace it with a generic piece of anonymous rubbish that will no doubt be truly uninspiring? There are far worse buildings in this city that need replacing and, more to the point, an abundance of gap sites that desperately want buildings!

Indeed, Holmes and Cooper Cromer hardly fill you with confidence either. Never mind the quality feel the net to gross.
