Planners won over by revised Dennistoun flats proposal
August 22 2018
Glasgow City Council has lent its backing to a bid to build 27 flats on the site of a former gospel hall in Dennistoun, after the developer behind the plan agreed to reduce the number flats and increase parking provision.
Nixon Blue had originally bid to build 31 flats and just eight parking spots, but the newly approved plans will deliver 27 flats and 15 parking places after congestion concerns were raised by neighbours.
Managing director Richard McFadzean, said: “We have worked with the city council planners to amend our proposal to reduce the number of apartments as well as increase the number of parking spaces available within our site. Having listened to concerns and worked with our architects, we have been able to amend our initial proposals.
“Working with Glasgow-based architects, Vellowwood, our residences aim to complement the local surrounding buildings which are traditional Glasgow tenements. Our design needed to be complementary in mass and scale and includes features such as bay windows. Dennistoun is a popular residential area and our apartments will be attractive to all those looking to be close to the city centre while enjoying the vibrancy of the local area.”
Situated on the corner of Finlay Drive and Armadale Street the project will comprise a range of two and three-bed flats.
