Final phase of Anderston master plan hits planning
July 10 2015
Comprising a mix of properties for social and mid-market rent as well as shared equity the scheme will front a busy junction on ST Vincent Street presently occupied by a 10-storey slab block and several smaller four storey blocks; all of which are currently being demolished.
These will be replaced by five blocks of double-fronted housing which will address both street elevations and gardens whilst restoring the lost Victorian street pattern.
In a statement the architects said: “Two six and seven storey brick buildings form a strong edge to the reinstated missing section of Argyle Street at the heart of the site. Two five storey buildings along St Vincent Street have sandstone elevations which reflect the existing tenements directly opposite.
“These are completed with a grey brick to the garden elevations, which is carried over to a further 4 storey block which addresses a second new pedestrian street.”
The current work follows on from Collective's delivery of 44 flats and five town houses last year.
Collective are working with artist Toby Paterson has been brought on board to produce a series of ‘integrated interventions’ within the new buildings and urban spaces
