Developer expands upon Glasgow riverfront holiday rental plans

Strathedin Properties and CM Architects have returned with revised plans to ‘evolve and adapt’ a B-listed terrace at Carlton Place, Glasgow, to return a building latterly used as a hospice back to residential use.

The former Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice currently lies empty but could be brought back to life through a programme of new build and refurbishment, repairing the street edge along South Portland Street while reinstating the original close access.

The planned intervention would repair the street edge by infilling the current backcourt car park with a contemporary brick element, with a modern rear extension also demolished and replaced to maximise the footprint.

Collectively this would allow 28 car-free flats to be created in addition to 82 rooms purpose-built for holiday rentals.

In a change to previously submitted plans, this new build element would rise over seven storeys with a ‘distinctive and contrasting corner feature’ and meet the street with a ground floor commercial unit.

New build elements would be finished in a mixture of sandstone and brick.

This is a great site to expand but this is a really poor response to surroundings, particularly on the elevation which fronts the street. It would be nice to see some followed through window lines and styles from the Georgian property it attaches, even if it is a modern interpretation. Unfortunately like most schemes right now t's boxy, uses a poor choice of materials and is a little uninspiring.
