Kelvinside gap site plans revived
December 11 2012
The plot will be developed in line with the surrounding context of neighbouring flatted properties to deliver build 18 townhouses, 46 apartments and 26 mews houses, a reduction in density from initial design proposals drawn up in 2008.
These attribute a greater proportion of land to landscaping and car parking whilst retaining the design language of the original and a row of protected lime trees.
Clad in natural stone, reconstituted stone and render the £26m development will sport natural slate roofs in areas visible from the street – with concrete tiling used elsewhere in addition to a copper feature turret.
In their design statement New City Vision state: “The fine architectural detail of the development has been designed and executed with the same level of literacy in classical and traditional architecture as the original. This does not mean the result is a direct copy but rather that the design has a harmonious continuity with the original.”
A North Kelvin Meadow campaign has been launched to preserve the area as open greenspace.
