Disused Glasgow nightclub to host speculative office conversion
Carrick Properties are to take on a disused former nightclub in Glasgow’s Queen Street for conversion to provide speculative office space, while retaining the existing ground floor units.

This will allow provision of 3,240sq/m of grade A accommodation spread across four upper floors at 21-41 Queen Street with a reconfigured entrance, updated services with the existing façade repainted and made good.

McGinlay Bell Architects propose to replace the slate roof with standing seam zinc punctured by rooflights to draw light into the top floor attic space.

Outlining their proposals the architects said; “It is proposed to unify and upgrade the shop frontage on to Queen Street with precast concrete pilaster, fascia and glazing.

“While all the new work has a modern language we have taken great care to respect the history of the existing building and context.”

Batman won't be happy he's losing his shopfront hideout.

I needed to move anyway, because my enemies figured out where I was hiding. Perhaps the signage was a bad idea.

Plus we figured it was about time I moved out. Things have been getting...tense.

It's extremely disappointing that the existing facade isn't being stripped back to the original stonework, as is happening in several other locations in the city centre.
