Designed by Mosaic Architecture + Design, the planning application is for a landscaped courtyard development of 359 contemporary apartments. With a mix of studio, one- and two- bedroom homes, the development will feature roof terraces, an amenity space, residents’ gym, a retail unit, office space and a bike store.
Currently a vacant site, 144 Port Dundas Road sits to the North of Glasgow City Centre, facing onto Port Dundas Road and Milton Street. With easy access to the M8 and within walking distance of Glasgow’s shops and restaurants, Buchanan Galleries, Queen Street Station, Cowcaddens Subway Station and Glasgow Caledonian University, the development is likely to appeal to both families and professionals working in the City.
Nick Treadaway, founder and CEO of Soller Group said: “Our Planning Application for 359 apartments will breathe new life into a vacant site at 144 Port Dundas Road, bringing new activity and investment to the area.
“The apartments have been designed for people looking for easy access to the city centre. When new homes are delivered to a neighbourhood, it’s vitally important that they have strong public transport links and offer access to work and leisure facilities, and this is definitely the case at 144 Port Dundas Road.”
Neil Haining, Director of Mosaic, added: “The proposed development has been carefully considered to respond to Glasgow’s drive to encourage City Centre living, which is vital to making Glasgow a sustainable and vibrant place to live. Our application also demonstrates our aim of placemaking a new destination neighbourhood community for Glasgow, which will quickly become part of the urban fabric of the City.
“144 Port Dundas Road will be a pedestrian-friendly courtyard development, allowing daylight to illuminate a central Public Square. Accessed by a landscaped plaza from Port Dundas Road, there will be amenity space as well as roof terraces, designed to ensure they are used as part of the everyday life of the building.”
