Dandara resuscitate stalled Glasgow builds
Dandara have dusted off two stalled schemes in Glasgow with the submission of proposal of application notices for a residential led build at Glasgow Harbour and a mixed us scheme at Cheapside Street.

Both schemes are now in the hands of Axis Mason with the gh2o branded Harbour scheme, third and final phase of the existing complex, comprising a 16 storey L-shaped block of 339 new homes.

Dandara’s Rachel Allwood told the Evening Times: “… because of the strength of the city economy, we have the confidence to bring forward these major new investment plans.”

A public exhibition detailing the plans will be held at the Riverside Museum 0n 6 August between 15:00 and 20:00 ahead of submission of formal planning applications.

I really liked the first phase architecture at Glasgow Harbour, but Dandara's second phase was appallingly cheap and shoddily developed. The oceans of ground-level concrete are more Stasi than stylish, and the build quality is ridiculed by former residents, quite apart from the holiday-camp architecture in the quadrangles. And that was after the original plans were rejected as insufficiently high quality by GCC.

I was really hoping Dandara would sell on the land and let someone else take charge of this third phase.

It's a real real shame the scheme somehow can't be completed as intended.... One of the best things about the original proposal was the consistency of the proposals to the waterfront... now it seems it will only contribute to the inconsistent and frankly shambolic nature of the waterfront here.
