Student housing scramble reboots Bath Street gap site plan
August 14 2014
Built on the site of the former Elgin Place Congregational Church, unceremoniously bulldozed by Glasgow City Council at Christmas 2004, the scheme will incorporate 1136sq/m of ground floor retail with accommodation for 320 student stacked above.
Design amendments include the use of a much larger central atrium to provide a dynamic social hub for occupants,a minor reduction in overall height by relocating plant to basement areas and an increase in the retail frontage along Bath Street.
A roof terrace will also be included where the stone plinth meets a glass extrusion.
In their design statement Church Lukas said: “Working within the parameters of an extant planning consent, this proposal will deliver an alternative mix of uses (student residential & retail) whilst adhering to the approved aesthetic framework.”
