Collective Architecture has submitted planning for this 206-home scheme in Glasgow
The £25 million project for Sanctuary Scotland Housing Association includes social rent, mid-market rent and shared equity homes as part of the regeneration of Anderston.
The site is currently occupied by a series of large ten-storey prefabricated slab blocks and smaller four-storey blocks which are being cleared as part of an eight-year-long regeneration project.
It includes 206 homes within five blocks of flats which have been designed to ‘reinstate the Victorian street pattern eradicated by 1960s developments’.
The scheme will reinstate a missing section of the city’s Argyle Street, with two six and seven-storey brick-clad blocks forming a ‘strong edge’ to the road.
The section of street will provide pedestrian and cycle access into Anderston while connecting to new amenity, recreation and play space within the site.
