New residential development for Dennistoun given green light

Plans to turn a former Gospel Hall into new residential accommodation in Dennistoun have been given the go-ahead.

Approval by Glasgow City Council was given to Nixon Blue yesterday following changes to the initial proposals.

The new residential build, at the corner of Finlay Drive and Armadale Street, will comprise of two and three-bedroom apartments with associated parking.

Glasgow-based developers Nixon Blue initially proposed 31 flats which were a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments with eight parking spaces, however having listened to local concerns, the company amended its proposal to 27 apartments and raised the parking allocation to 15 spaces.

Managing director Richard McFadzean said: “We have worked with the city council planners to amend our proposal to reduce the number of apartments as well as increase the number of parking spaces available within our site. Having listened to concerns and worked with our architects, we have been able to amend our initial proposals.

“Working with Glasgow-based architects, Vellowwood, our residences aim to complement the local surrounding buildings which are traditional Glasgow tenements. Our design needed to be complementary in mass and scale and includes features such as bay windows. Dennistoun is a popular residential area and our apartments will be attractive to all those looking to be close to the city centre while enjoying the vibrancy of the local area.”
