Cooper Cromar detail 110 Queen Street vision
May 23 2011
The practice tentatively envisage an 9 storey office block comprising 224,266sq/ft of accommodation encased within a concave façade of curtain wall glazing - an obvious iteration of the Aurora building on Bothwell Street.
Project architect Simon Walsh, of Cooper Cromar, told Urban Realm: “We’ve got the benefit of a three sided site, arguably a four sided site, which is kind of unique in Glasgow
“The logic is to create an urban gateway in reference to the art deco building opposite with curved corners."
A key component of the build will be new ground floor retail offering on Ingram Street, made possible by building out the present “ kick back” on the building line of the existing structure.
Should planning be granted BAM, who are presently stripping the existing structure of asbestos, will demolish the entire building by the first quarter of 2012 with completion anticipated for early 2014.
Urban Realm will be taking an exclusive look at 110 Queen Street in June.
