BTR revolution takes Glasgow to new heights
May 15 2020
Ryder Architecture has filed plans for a major residential-led development which will bring 182 new homes to Glasgow City Centre.
Led by Brickland the ambitious build to rent scheme will transform 64-72 Waterloo Street through repurposing the B-listed Distiller's House (as known as Coltas House), bringing the richly decorated building back into use.
Now unoccupied the building will be sensitively overhauled, bringing back lost features such as an ornate dome lost to fire in the 1940s as well as vital stonework repairs.
Standing alongside a dramatic new build element will rise, providing tenants with lofty panoramas of the city with a complimentary business hub and residents amenity also provided.
Darren Leary, chief operating officer of Brickland, said, “Brickland is delighted to be involved in this fantastic project which will provide high quality residential accommodation in the city centre. The Build to Rent sector is bourgeoning in Glasgow and we expect this development to make a significant contribution toward increasing vitality and vibrancy in the area, in line with Glasgow City Council’s aim of increasing sustainable city centre living.
"The heritage assets on the site, including the B listed Distillers’ Building which will be sympathetically incorporated into the new development, will create a fantastic offer for residents and have made this a fascinating project to work on.”
The development team includes input from AA Projects, Woolgar Hunter, Futureserv and BB7.
