CALA give final Jordanhill tour ahead of campus housing project
November 6 2017
Proposals include improving the setting of the former teacher training college by demolishing an array of ad-hoc post war extensions and buildings which have sprouted within its grounds, allowing the sandstone structure to grace the skyline unobstructed.
Peter McLaughlin of 7N Architects said: “Stow College is solidly built from Dumfries sandstone and is in good condition, it’s more like an Upper-Westside building in New York. We think it will convert really nicely to a grand new entrance for a modern apartment building. It’s about trying to find a new use within the constraints that the fabric presents.”
CALA intend to convert the David Stow building to form 67 apartments, part of a wider scheme to deliver 400 homes on the 31-acre campus, retaining 40% of existing greenspace.
Detailed plans were submitted in March but these are still awaiting planning consent from Glasgow City Council.
