Stewart Milne Homes has submitted a planning application for a residential development comprising apartments, duplexes and family homes to regenerate the site, which is within the Pacific Quay Creative Clyde Enterprise Area, one of several strategic economic investment locations designated in the Glasgow City Development Plan.
The housebuilder is leading on the masterplan which is a collaborative venture involving Scottish Enterprise, architects HAUS Collective, Glasgow City Council Planning Department, Turley Planning Consultants, Dougall Baillie Associates, Oobe Landscaping and Wireframe Immersive.
The local community and key stakeholders have contributed to the evolution of the design and approach within the masterplan.
Allan McQuade, director of business infrastructure, Scottish Enterprise, said: “We have been working with Stewart Milne Homes to deliver the next generation of residential and amenity space at Pacific Quay. This development represents a rare and exciting opportunity to create an exemplar development at a key strategic site for Glasgow and forms a significant part of the final stages in the wider Pacific Quay masterplan.”
The proposals aim to deliver a residential neighbourhood with unique characteristic within the Pacific Quay locale on the fringe of Finnieston, which has undergone a dramatic change in recent years through progressive developments for business, commercial and social uses.
Gerry More, managing director of Stewart Milne Homes, added: “Throughout the design process, we’ve taken account of the best aspects of the city’s architecture which have inspired the contemporary homes which are set within a carefully-planned and high amenity environment.
“From the public spaces, streets, lanes and abundance of landscaping, through to the design and detailing of the homes, the aim is to create a community of unique character which reflects the quality and heritage of its setting.
“By understanding the heritage, context and character of an area, we can ensure that all our developments are designed in such a way that they create unique places with a sense of community, pride and soul.”
