Following hot on the heels of a rival £200m scheme to the east Holland Park will also incorporate 31,000sq/ft of outdoor amenity space with accommodation arranged over four blocks set around a landscaped courtyard which will be open to the public during the day.
Murray Henderson, director at HAUS Collective, said: “The Holland Park proposals comprise a collection of forms that respond to the strong urban ‘grid-iron’ plan synonymous with Glasgow. The scale of the site and its influential location within the city present a unique opportunity to deliver a high quality residential and mixed-use development that can contribute meaningfully to the locale by enhancing the townscape and local environment.
"As Glaswegians, we recognise the importance of an increased resident population within an evolving city centre contributing to the wider city economy. Holland Park presents a distinctive, contemporary lifestyle choice through the innovative ‘Build-to-Rent’ community being created.”
This Pitt Street 'neighbourhood’ is envisaged to include co-working spaces for business startups, cafes, bars and restaurants, roof terraces and residents lounge with Woolgar Hunter serving as engineers.
