Planning secured for build-to-rent Glasgow neighbourhood
Moda & Apache Capital Partners have obtained planning consent, clearing the way for delivery of 433 build-to-rent homes on the site of the former Strathclyde Police HQ in Glasgow City Centre.

Holland Park is set to move on-site later this year will include 45,000sq/ft of amenity space focussed on a new public courtyard, ringed by four buildings ranging in height from six to 22 storeys.

Also on offer will be a residents lounge, virtual sports simulators, a health and wellness suite, landscaped roof gardens and an BBQ area to ensure tenants make the most of their time in the development.

Tenants will also be able to call on a 24-hour concierge and report faults or organise on-site events by way of a custom app.
Richard Jackson, co-founder and managing director of Apache Capital Partners, said: “We are delighted to have successfully secured our planning application for the complete regeneration of the old Metropolitan Police Headquarters, our first planning consent in Scotland.

"The across the board support we have received from both central and local government has been critical in delivering this consent and a great endorsement of our landmark scheme. Holland Park’s stunning design and facilities will transform the local rental market in Glasgow, whilst helping to breathe new life into the surrounding neighbourhood.”

Valued at £120m the first homes in the HAUS-Collective designed project won’t be available for occupation until 2022.

Mad perspective on that image. Looks like something from Cabinet of Dr Caligary, but without all the excitement. It is murder though...

Now try that same render with a grey sky. I wish we'd stop constructing buildings with dark facades in Scotland.

Finally, some residential property in the city centre, with some height thrown in.

#2. Totally agree. Would love some colour on the skyline. If it’s good enough for Bergen, why not Glasgow and it’s grey skies? There is an interesting colourful building near Shaftesbury Avenue in London.

Get it built and let glasgow flourish. Too many empty site, empty buildings in the city centre. It needs people to bustle..

They must have saved money on an architect. No imagination like the guy who runs it.

Shame they were forced to reduce the height

2 & 4 - not sure I agree. If it were metallic grey like the BBC building then yes. However, it looks similar to the recently refurbished Dakota Deluxe Hotel on Blythswood Hill and I think it looks fantastic!

Where are the usual extreme negative comments? This deserves real criticism! What a total load of C_ _ P.
