Developer expands upon Glasgow riverfront holiday rental plans
July 31 2019
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.
