Proposals for new mixed-use development at Finnieston Street revealed
The public is to be given the opportunity to view proposals by Keltbray Developments for a new residential and commercial development at Finnieston Street, Glasgow.
The project will comprise a mixed-use development, including residential use, live/work units, commercial use – retail and/or food and drink outlets, associated parking, open space, infrastructure, and landscaping.
The 2.39-acre brownfield site was formerly a car dealership and prior to that a post office vehicle depot and brass foundry.
A Proposal of Application Notice (PAN) has been submitted to Glasgow City Council, which heralds the intent to submit a planning application following a minimum 12-week consultation period. A digital consultation event will be held as part of this process.
Due to the ongoing pandemic and issues surrounding the COVID-19 virus, the Scottish Government has issued guidance that developers use online engagement methods.
On Thursday, 10 March 2022, between 3pm and 7pm, the development team will be available at www.orbitconsultations.scot/finniestonstreet to answer questions through a dedicated chat system as part of the digital consultation. At 3pm, 4pm, 5pm and 6pm the team will provide a short 5-minute presentation of the exhibition boards.
This will enable visitors to communicate directly with the design and advisory team and for them to answer any questions.
Details of the proposals will go live on the website from 10 am.
Visitors who do not have online access to exhibition materials can request hard copies from firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Orbit Communications on or at 4 Queen Street, Edinburgh EH2 1JE.
A representative of Keltbray Developments said: “Our proposals will significantly assist in the sensitive regeneration of this part of the city through these exciting mixed-use proposals.
“As part of this process we are consulting extensively to ensure that people from across the local area have an opportunity to input their views and shape our ambitious proposals through this consultation event.
“This is an incredibly appealing prospect for the area and Glasgow as a whole and we encourage all interested parties to speak to the team on Thursday 10 March and to put any questions and provide feedback.”
