Richard Murphy reveals £110m Glasgow mixed-use scheme

  • 1 Comment

[FIRST LOOK + PROJECT DATA] Richard Murphy Architects has submitted plans this £110 million mixed-use scheme in Glasgow

The Candleriggs Quarter project includes 135 flats for private sale, 377 private-rental flats, a 124-room hotel, and a 597-bed student accommodation block, together with shops and new public realm.

The 14,900m² site has sat derelict since the city’s Goldbergs department store closed in 1999. The site has subsequently been used for a variety of pop-up uses including an Irn-Bru-sponsored venue during the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

A decision on the planning application is expected in the summer and if successful the scheme is set to start on site in spring 2016.

  • Good to see respect for the ambience of the Merchant City - if only architects could show the same degree of respect for nearby George Square.
