Former Dalmarnock school to seed riverside neighbourhood
August 19 2019
The future is looking brighter for the C-listed former Strathclyde Public School at Carstairs Street, Glasgow, after permission was granted for residential conversion – together with a neighbouring 1960s printworks.
These retained elements will be flanked by two new-build blocks collectively overlooking a landscaped riverfront while framing the school and a B-listed mill – outwith the application boundary - to provide 111 flats in total.
New additions by Jewitt and Wilkie architects will employ a mix of concrete banding with grey/blue and red brick referencing the printworks and rich Locharbriggs sandstone of the school.
First submitted for planning by Spectrum Properties four years ago the accommodation would be arranged around a shared piazza opposite the Clyde Smart bridge, part of the Clyde Gateway masterplan.
Planning permission follows completion of the nearby Magenta building by Clyde Gateway.
