[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.
