'Garden oasis' to extend Merchant City Art Trail
March 29 2022
Detailed plans have for a 'garden oasis' in the heart of the Merchant City have been brought forward at a second consultation event.
A follow-up presentation by Artisan Real Estate expands on a February submission to illustrate how 109 homes above ground floor commercial units of up to 2,750sq/ft will slot into 65-97 Ingram Street.
Four buildings designed by AMA Studio of between four to six storeys are proposed for the temporary car park, employing a stepped design that permits a series of private and communal roof terraces to be formed accommodating bird boxes, beekeeping and raised beds for growing vegetables.
Wrapping around a courtyard garden the mixed-use car-free development will include public seating, lighting and artwork to plug into the Merchant City Art Trail.
A spokesman for Artisan Real Estate said, “We knew the location of this development which borders on key city streetscapes including Ingram Street, Albion Street and Candleriggs, demanded an impressive design statement and we believe our proposals deliver this."
A drop-in event for the proposals will be held today in Merchant Square between 15:00 and 19:00.
