Conservation area pub to make way for 18 flats aimed at the LGBT community
September 29 2021
An abandoned bar in Glasgow city centre is to make way for new-build serviced apartments following receipt of planning permission and conservation area consent.
The unlisted Annie Millers Public House sits within the Glasgow Central conservation area on Ropework Lane but suffers from structural and rot issues after being abandoned for years, prompting the move to demolish and build 18 serviced apartments.
Andre Graham, director of developer Big Top Productions, said: “The managed apartments will replace the derelict Annie Millers Public House which has long been a nuisance and blight to the immediate area and will lead to a significant drop in antisocial behaviour, whilst increasing the value of properties in the vicinity.
“This 3-to-4-star level apartment project will be named The Axis Studios, and will be primarily aimed at, but not exclusive to, the LGBT community and guests will be welcomed from all groups. We will be a hetero-friendly establishment."
Mosaic director Stephen Mallon added:“The building is a contemporary and energy-efficient design using a simple but high-quality palette of materials such as blue brick, bronze cladding and aluminium curtain walling. A terrace provides rooftop activation with appropriate screening and solar panels on the roof.”
The £3m build will include a 24-hour concierge service and will improve the setting of Ropework and Metropole Lanes.
