City of Glasgow College campus plan swings into action
October 1 2013
Jointly designed by Reiach & Hall Architects and Michael Laird the new building will rise to 11 storeys, offering 57,000sq/ft of accommodation arranged around a four storey library and atrium space.
A rooftop café will offer expansive views over the city whilst extensive landscaping works by Rankin Fraser will knit the scheme into neighbouring Townhead, whilst Cathedral Street itself will be activated by a new street frontage and widened pavements.
Paul Little, principal of City of Glasgow College, said: “The Allan Glen’s building has served the City of Glasgow College and, before that, the people of Glasgow extremely well. However, we are now looking forward to an exciting new chapter with the building of our new campus. We will ensure that the Allan Glen name lives on in our new college.”
Construction will commence immediately following demolition with completion penciled in for August 2016.
