East Kilbride church falls pray to housebuilder

The site of an East Kilbride church has been earmarked for 13 new build flats by Dickie & Moore homes with submission of plans to South Lanarkshire Council.

Threshold Church will be demolished to make way for the Lawrence McPherson Associated designed homes, 21 parking spaces and associated landscaping for the triangular site.

Finished in buff coloured facing brick with blond sandstone details the Maxwell Drive build will be arranged over three levels with three full-height glazed stairwells.

Each two-bedroom flat will be arranged in an L-shaped block set within landscaped grounds with roads access provided off Maxwell Drive.

Best known for their hotel work LMA are teasing the launch of a new Spanish venture as the practice targets a growing continental workload.

Whilst the existing church building is monstrous could the replacement flats not offer something inspirational?

I don't think the existing church is monstrous, it's just...quite heavy - it was probably viewed as something acceptable on completion. And why should the replacement flats be inspirational, do we deserve more than the neighbours of the site 40 years ago when the inspiration we crave now is parked outside our door + fixed on the wall pointing at the Sky satellite in orbit above. Clean home, clean minds, clean wallet...life is good...wherever + whatever.
