If approved, the block would comprise of 65 apartments, comprised of one, two and three bedrooms, with private external space and access to communal roof terraces.

An unlisted vacant office building would also be demolished as part of the plan, reGlasgow reports.

The site is located near Glasgow Green, and sits between a classical villa and the 1960s extension of former Our Lady and St Francis Secondary School, which was designed by architect Jack Coia.

A design document included with the planning application reads: “The existing site will be cleared to facilitate the creation of a vibrant, dynamic, development promoting liveable urban density.
