Bath Street on the up with 12 storey mixed use plans
August 24 2016significant mixed use development bounded by Sauchiehall, Renfield and Bath Street’s in Glasgow city centre following conclusion of a pre-application consultation.
The 0.46 hectare urban block will be given over to a 12 storey office block fronting Bath Street delivering 13,000sq/m of floor space above a ground floor podium level incorporating entrance and reception spaces as well as an Apple-branded retail outlet.
Through access will also be afforded to a central courtyard faced with dark Whionstone and reclaimed key setts, which will offer access to Sauchiehall Lane as well as connecting to Renfield Street.
Above ground a semi-public sky terrace will introduce a viewing gallery and performance venue.
In a planning statement JLL said: “The proposal is to redevelop what is now a vacant site for multiple uses which will vastly improve the fabric of what is a strategically important urban block.
“New build elements will be incorporated sensitively to Bath Street and Renfield Street and overall there is to be the careful combination of repair, intervention and new build that will usher in a new vision for the whole urban area.”
A separate intervention on Sauchiehall Street will see the existing structure retained and re-clad with the addition of two extra storeys.
