Kelvin Properties get the ball rolling for Shawlands flats
November 14 2018
Shawlands Bowling Club has been earmarked for residential expansion with an application by Kelvin Properties to erect a block of flats on the site of a disused green.
Holmes Miller Architects have been appointed to lead the design of the proposal which will necessitate demolition of a portion of the current clubhouse, the remainder of which will be refurbished.
Located off Pollokshaws Road and bordering a retained bowling green to the west the scheme would deliver 51 flats with higher level properties benefitting from private balconies and terraces.
In a statement the architects wrote: “The design has been developed to maximise aspects (to the bowling green) with the use of terraces and full height windows with juliet balconies.
“The scale of the proposed development has been carefully considered to ensure that the character and integrity of the area is maintained.”
Shawlands is one of a number of bowling clubs across the city to have been lined up for development amidst dwindling memberships, most recently at Cathcart.
