Plans by HAUS to turn a former police HQ into private rented apartments have been submitted to Glasgow City Council
The practice has drawn up proposals for developer Moda to transform the former home of Strathclyde Police into build-to-rent homes.
The Holland Park scheme would feature 433 homes, co-working and wellbeing facilities along with cafés, bars, restaurants and 9,000m2 of outdoor amenity space.
The homes – a mix of one, two and three bedrooms – would be spread over four blocks arranged into a square. A courtyard in the middle would be open to the public during the day, while there would also be three landscaped rooftop terraces.
Moda is in discussions with the city council about works to improve the public realm outside the Pitt Street site.
HAUS director Murray Henderson said: ‘The Holland Park proposals comprise a collection of forms that respond to the strong urban ‘grid-iron’ plan synonymous with Glasgow.
’The scale of the site and its influential location within the city present a unique opportunity to deliver a high quality residential and mixed-use development that can contribute meaningfully to the locale by enhancing the townscape and local environment.
‘As Glaswegians, we recognise the importance of an increased resident population within an evolving city centre contributing to the wider city economy. Holland Park presents a distinctive, contemporary lifestyle choice through the innovative build-to-rent community being created.’
