‘Luxury’ Park Circus tenement secures planning approval
Expresso Property and Holmes Miller have won planning consent from Glasgow City Council to build a ‘luxury’ tenement block in the city’s west end.

Park Quadrant will complete Charles Miller’s Park Circus development and is set to include bespoke interiors and south facing aspect over private gardens, conceived as outdoor living rooms for residents.

Services and facilities such as parking and refuse will be concealed from view with natural stone employed to marry with the historic environment.

Expresso co-director Nick Robinson commented: "One of the key concepts throughout the evolution of the design was to create a luxury, high-end product that forged a dynamic link between old and new. The design follows the original approach within the area, to celebrate the very best standards of living and their relationship to their park-land setting and the wonderful urban spaces of Park District.”

The new homes will be delivered in partnership with Sir Robert McAlpine.

Let's put an "unapologetically modern" interjection intae a historical/traditional masterpiece. An then let's pretend it's becoz we're pure dead progressive and aw that as opposed tae whit it really is: dumbed doon contemporary architecture paying lip service tae the past whilst value engineering the hell oot the buildings aw so the developer can make mare profit. Sick.

the quality ae wit is being proposed is no as gid as wit preceded it. They only had to continue wae the style ae wit wiz awready thur. And they couldnae even dae that. Aw becoz they ur institutionally opposed tae traditionalism yet funnily enough dinnae mind cannibalising on it.

0 Points: Nonsensical, repetitive ramblings, that make little sense whilst written in poorly constructed, "vernacular" text.

Hmm, 0 points today! Wow, at least you are trying a bit harder this time Big Chantelle.

"Expresso" has to be one of the most nauseatingly grating company names.....

it's like fingernails on a blackboard

They probably have board meetings where they use words and phases like 'pacifically' and 'if you aks me', and 'excape'

I could walk past this and not notice it, and rightly so as it is a background building".
The real question is...what the fajita happened to that church above on the left?

I really like these, they seem about as tasteful as a modern twist on the park district theme could be. I just hope they actually go ahead, unlike so many other approved schemes in the city these days!
