Greenfield expansion of Ayr given the all clear
May 31 2016
Detailed planning consent has been given to LXB retail properties and The Harris Partnership to press ahead with a Sainsbury’s supermarket and car park as well as a pedestrian link bridge over the A77.
In their design statement for the business units The Harris Partnership said: “The overall design of the external elevations seeks to provide a simple crisp and uncluttered building that gives a contemporary feel to the south side of the Corton development. This is further enhanced through the use of high quality robust materials within key elevations.
“The public space elevation and main elevation to the rear have been designed to present a clear distinction between itself and the landmark buildings that flank it. A restricted palette of quality materials including crisp white render and composite timber cladding provide a welcoming and attractive frontage to the development.”
Infrastructure works associated with the supermarket will open up the remainder of the site to additional housing.
