Candleriggs Quarter goes car free with latest design revisions
November 13 2017design revisions for their recently consented Candleriggs Quarter following approval for the original scheme by Glasgow City Council.
Amendments proposed by CDA and Richard Murphy Architects including the omission of a basement car park and the relocation of plant to ground floor level – which will also be given fewer, larger, retail units.
In a statement the developer wrote: “This Section 42 application seeks to vary the consented development to incorporate design revisions to the scheme following a thorough design review of the PRS and PFS blocks and ground floor to address market needs, buildability, management, sustainability and design development.”
Modest changes to the overall massing and height of the development are also proposed including an increase in the floor to ceiling height of apartments to 2.5m, upping the height of both towers by around 1m, together with the ‘stacking’ of flats to rationalise services.
Additional dual aspect apartments will also be offered by relocating the PRS core and omitting a first floor setback.
