Views sought on revised plans for former M&S store on Sauchiehall Street

Updated plans for the redevelopment of the former Marks & Spencer store on Sauchiehall Street are being brought forward for public consultation.

The proposals, being brought forward by student housing developers and operators Fusion Students, are for a mixed-use development comprising purpose-built student accommodation for approximately 500 residents, together with commercial units on the ground floor to maintain activity at street level.

In addition, the historic arcade link between Sauchiehall Street and Renfrew Street is set to be reinstated, providing a publicly accessible connection between Sauchiehall Street and Renfrew Street.

Members of the public will be able to view the refined proposals for the prominent site in Glasgow City Centre through online and in-person events.

An in-person session will be held on Thursday 23rd March at the Maldron Hotel between 2:30 – 7:00pm while an online interactive chat session will take place between 3:00– 7:00 pm on Tuesday 28th March via the project website.

The events follow on from an initial public consultation held on Wednesday 2 November 2022.

A spokesperson for Fusion Students said: “We are delighted to be bringing forward updated proposals to the local community as part of our ongoing consultation process.

“Through the delivery of quality accommodation, carefully thought-out public realm spaces and commercial units, we remain confident that the proposals would enhance this historic street in Glasgow’s City Centre, while also serving to address the shortage of PBSA beds for the city’s student population.

“We look forward to welcoming members of the local community and interested parties in the coming weeks and hearing their thoughts on the updated proposals.
