Clydeside tower raises build to rent stakes
September 24 2018
A slow burning build to rent revolution in Glasgow has taken another step forward with the submission of a 500-home waterfront PRS scheme at Central Quay.
The £90m development is being spearheaded by developer, property manager and investor Platform_ which has selected the Clydeside for the latest stage of its UK expansion.
Building on an earlier application for planning in principle the latest plans have been conceived by Keppie Design as part of their 300,000sq/ft Central Quay masterplan - which also includes 300,000sq/ft of office space and a 150-room hotel.
Offering a range of accommodation from studio apartments through to three-bedroom flats the scheme will incorporate its own shared residents lounge, concierge, roof terraces, gym, games room and a co-working space.
Keppie director Richard MacDonald said: “The Platform_ Central Quay design has evolved to include an iconic feature tower which will greatly enhance the Clyde Waterfront and Glasgow’s skyline. The high-quality public realm and design of the scheme will also significantly improve the area.”
All being well construction work could commence by the second quarter of 2019, completing by summer 2021.
