HAUS’s Glasgow police HQ conversion scheme approved

  • Comment

Glasgow architect HAUS is to turn a former police headquarters in its home city into 433 homes for private rent after Glasgow City Council approved its proposals

The practice has designed the consented Holland Park scheme for a joint venture of developer Moda and real estate investor Apache Capital Partners.

This will see the old Strathclyde Police HQ on Pitt Street turned into four buildings, the highest 22 storeys, set around a public courtyard.

A mix of studios, one, two, and three-bed digitally-enabled apartments will be designed to house a community of almost 1,000 people.

The scheme will also comprise more than 4,000m2 of communal space, including resident lounges, virtual sports simulators, health and wellness zones and landscaped roof gardens.

Moda managing director Tony Brooks said: ‘Securing planning permission for Holland Park is a real milestone for the business, and puts us one step closer to creating the UK’s leading lifestyle property brand.’

HAUS director Murray Henderson told the AJ earlier this year: ‘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.’
