Holmes wins green light in Glasgow

  • Comment

Glasgow City Council has given detailed planning consent for Holmes Architects’ 110 Great Queen Street project

The £40 million mixed-use project, developed by Valad, is located in the centre of Glasgow, and will reconnect Ingram Street to Buchanan Street, forming a bridge between the Merchant City and the city centre’s more established retail district.

Consultation has been ongoing between Glasgow City Council and Historic Scotland, together with Architecture and Design Scotland and the Glasgow Urban Design Panel, to ensure the design complied with key City design and development policies and planning guidance.

Harry Phillips, Holmes chairman and lead architect on the project, said: ‘The design has had to fulfil high architectural expectations in order to take its place alongside some very fine listed buildings, not least the Gallery of Modern Art in Royal Exchange Square.
