'Glasgow Corner' Passivhaus properties secure approval
June 4 2020
Planners have awarded conditional consent to a proposal by Robert Potter & Partners to construct 36 flats at Springfield Cross in Glasgow's east end.
Led by West of Scotland Housing Association the scheme would rejuvenate a prominent parcel of brownfield land at the junction of Springfield and London Road's, extending regeneration initiatives at the nearby Athlete's Village such as a new primary school.
Finished in facing brick around a stone effect frame the 'Glasgow Corner' style build aims to establish a local landmark in the manner of more flamboyant and robust tenement designs at key junctions.
Confirming approval the council's development and regeneration services department wrote: "The proposal was considered to be in accordance with the Development Plan and there were no material considerations which outweighed the proposal's accordance with the Development Plan."
Conceived as a 'building in the round' the design treats front and rear elevations equally with all properties meeting Passivhaus standards.
