The vacant site on Osborne Street

Property company Ambassador Group has lodged a proposal of application notice with Glasgow City Council to develop student accommodation on a vacant site on Osborne Street in the city centre.

Located on the corner of Osborne Street and Old Wynd, the proposals seek to create a contemporary development of 326 student apartments.

In advance of the submission of a planning application, public consultations will commence in the new year with drop-in events being held on Wednesday 18th January and Wednesday 8 February from 2pm until 7pm in the ground floor reception area of Granite House, 31-33 Stockwell Street. Visitors will be able to view the proposals and meet with the design team. Plans will also be available to view at from Monday 16 January.

Ahsan Afzal, head of development for Nova Living at Ambassador Group, said: “The desperate need for student accommodation in Glasgow has been widely reported and Osborne Street is a well-positioned student location, being a short walking distance from universities, main transport links and the city centre’s vibrant retail and nightlife scene.

“We’re excited to introduce our NOVA student living concept to Glasgow. We are incorporating an innovative design which encourages students to come together, socialise and share ideas. Our community and sustainability-led approach re-affirms our deep-rooted focus on student experience and wellbeing.”

Based in Glasgow, the Ambassador Group has a solid track record of delivering high quality buildings including Park Quadrant Residences in Glasgow’s West End, 17 Pollokshaws in the southside and a 200,000 sq ft mixed-use development in Finnieston.
