Finnieston flats promise 'liveable density'
November 9 2021
Nevis Properties have filed plans for a £10m residential development in Finnieston, Glasgow, with an emphasis on sustainability.
Located on the site of a former brass foundry currently used as offices the Haus Collective designed block will deliver 64 apartments, each with a private balcony.
A range of green technologies will be employed for the build which runs off a centralised combined heat and power system that harnesses 'reclaimed heat' to supplement six electric vehicle charging docks. A solar panel array will be installed on the roof, which also hosts three amenity spaces for residents including a seventh-floor rooftop terrace, an outdoor exercise space and a communal veranda for al fresco dining.
Marc Taylor, director at Nevis Properties, said: "For Glasgow to continue to evolve as a dynamic, contemporary city, and recover from the pandemic, there is a need to create quality housing in prime locations which enhances the urban fabric of the city and attracts the very best talent.
“As Glasgow becomes ever more popular with larger businesses, there is a growing need to meet the surging demand for premium living accommodation at a price point which fits the needs of buyers and renters. That’s why we want to develop a property which will not only develop a real community, but also become the gold standard for sustainable developments in future.”
Informed by the writing of urbanist David Sim the plans prioritise 'controllable' outdoor spaces around a single T-plan building where the massing permits a variety of external communal and private spaces.
