Town centre Paisley apartments move ahead

34 flats and three ground floor commercial units at 22 Bridge Street, Paisley, are to go ahead following approval from Renfrewshire Council.

Designed by Vellow Wood The Millhouse will command a dual frontage to both the street and the Cart River Walkway, occupying an L-plan footprint over five floors.

Finished in zinc cladding, cream render, textured buff brick and buff stone under a recessed flat roof the project will incorporate an amenity space to the front as well as a terrace connecting restaurants to the river.

Richard McFadzean, managing director of Nixon Blue, said: “We will breathe new life into this riverside location and encourage people to live by the water and enjoy the splendid views opposite Paisley Abbey. Following on from our first successful development in Paisley at Old Sneddon Street, we are delighted to transform our next site in Paisley stunning apartments and create a new landmark for the town.”

The former Institute nightclub has already been demolished in anticipation of development.

Is cladding ok to add to buildings now or will people struggle to get mortgages to buy these?

This looks like a great proposed. Decent strong urban edge to the street and active ground floor use. Will be a welcome addition to the centre of Paisley

We need more town-centre regeneration like this. Paisley has such potential.

Something about this that just looks “right”
Good effort all round.
