Glasgow’s Trongate looking up with warehouse conversion
February 24 2017Candleriggs Quarter project with the emergence of plans to convert a B-listed former warehouse building designed by J T Rochead for residential use.
Jewitt and Wilkie Architects acting on behalf of Cartland Holdings propose to fashion five serviced apartments within the upper floors of a corner block at 97-10 Trongate, including addition of a two storey duplex, accessible from a new entrance off 101 Trongate.
Explaining their approach the architects said: “The applicants are keen to have the new main entrance brought back to standard befitting the quality of apartments they will be offering. New stonework will be used to tie the main entrance in with the upper floors, and the applicants will propose a scheme of restoring the ground floor shop unit, that will hopefully include the removal of existing advertising canopies and vinyl stuck on adverts at signage level.”
Complementary signage alterations will be conducted in tandem with this work to a newsagent at street level, enhancing the properties kerb appeal with a matt black timber panel and discreet lettering.
