Glasgow-based Hoskins Architects has submitted plans to bring two listed buildings in the city back into use as part of a major mixed-use scheme
Under the proposals for the development in George Street, both the A-listed former Parish Halls and the B-listed former Inland Revenue building would be converted to serviced residential apartments above ground-floor leisure and shopping space.
Developer the Chris Stewart Group is behind the £70 million project to reimagine the site next to George Square and the City Chambers in the city centre.
Plans also include a hotel building to fill a gap on the corner of George Street and John Street. Elsewhere there will be bars, restaurants, further retail space and a student residence building.
Hoskins Architects director Chris Coleman-Smith said: ’This is a site that requires a careful combination of repair, intervention and new-build.
’A considered and coherent approach has been adopted, which will revitalise unused listed buildings, establish new connections with the wider city and enrich the public realm.’
