Flats planned for Glasgow commercial site

Plans to build 42 flats and two shops have been submitted a Calton site currently occupied by a shop, a takeaway, the Wee Mans Bar and an old engineering workshop of butcher equipment suppliers MacNaughton & Watson.

The application concerns the land surrounded by the Graham Square apartment buildings on the Gallowgate.

The development would comprise of 28 one-bedroom flats and 14 two-bedroom flats around a central courtyard. Twelve undercroft car parking spaces would also be provided, ReGlasgow reports.

A document submitted with the application reads: “The design of the block was envisaged as a contemporary interpretation of the traditional four-story Glasgow tenement.

A previous application seeking to convert the workshop part of the site, which is accessed via a pend, into a 17-bedroom hotel and guest house was refused by Glasgow officials several years ago.
