24 apartments proposed for Belvidere Bowling Club
January 11 2021
Another Glasgow bowling club is to play host to residential development with the submission of fresh plans for the east end following the sale of one of its two greens.
Belvidere Bowling Club has been chosen by Parkhead Housing Association and Sim Building Group to provide 24 flats contained within a single U-plan block.
Extending a run of development around Springfield Cross the work will further reinstate London Road as an urban corridor, complementing surviving tenements and more recent developments.
Design work led by DTA Architects will see the four-storey block finished in buff tending a run of development around textured clay brick with the lower two floors finished in dark red brick.
In a design statement, the practice wrote: "All flats are dual aspect and the U-shape block has been designed as two mirror ‘L’ shape sections – this allows for a Type C 1-bed unit on the shorter end of the ‘L’, with aspects front to back, and two 2-bed units at each end of the longer wing, both utilising two external elevations at each end and the side.
"With the ‘U’ shape plan divided into two manageable sections, this also then allowed for two separate communal stair cores accessed off the internal landscaped courtyard facing the resident’s parking."
A street-facing stone wall currently used as advertising fascia will be partially retained in combination with black metal railings.
