Fifth iteration of Glasgow office block ups floorspace amidst supply drought
May 16 2018approval for a 260,000sq/ft block spanning 12 floors.
The latest approach for 177 Bothwell Street, which has stood vacant for over a decade, calls for creation of 305,000sq/ft of space amidst an ongoing dearth of supply - with no speculative office developments underway in the CBD and the earliest anticipated new build completion not hitting the market until summer 2020.
Carrying forward the most recently consented scheme the architects propose to address this shortfall with a simple glass block, lent interest through subdivision into a series of separate ‘boxes’ of varying width and height.
These will be differentiated through use of recessed stone piers with additional accommodation taking the form of setback ‘attic floors’ recessed behind the main datum. Rooftop plant space will be hidden behind a screened enclosure encircled by a perimeter running track intended to help sedentary office workers escape their desks.
