Plans lodged for 'gateway to Paisley' apartments
March 10 2022
Kelvin Properties have surfaced plans for a 'gateway to Paisley' apartment block on the site of a former office block on the corner of Saucel Street and Lonend that has lain vacant since 2018.
Incorporating shared spaces and hybrid office zones the development of 67 apartments by Mosaic Architects comes with solar PV panels and electric vehicle charging stations.
Demolition waste from the former Department for Work and Pensions office, dating from 1992, will be crushed and re-used where possible to minimise carbon emissions.
Marc Taylor, director of Kelvin Properties, commented: “We see this as a key gateway site to Paisley town centre, for those travelling from the south along Lonend. We have sought to design and create a high-quality development that welcomes people to the heart of the town while removing vacant buildings which can be an eyesore."
Subject to planning approval Kelvin Properties proposes to commence work later this year.
30 years old and being torn down is not where we should be regarding sustainability and an efficient use of resources.
Very wasteful in a town that didn't need the Luftwaffe to produce gap sites.
