Proposals for a four-storey residential development on a City Property Glasgow (Investments) LLP site at the former Napiershall Street School have been granted approval by Glasgow City Council.

Kelvin Properties plans for the site of the 21,410 sq. ft. former 1890s school building include 49 apartments and a range of amenities for residents.

The exciting development between Great Western Road and Maryhill Road will retain the architectural features of the existing red sandstone building which will comprise a four-storey residential development of 24 converted flats, including four penthouse apartments. In addition, a new build L-shaped block will be formed within the remaining grounds to provide a further 25 apartments.  The proposals include a range of amenities, including a rooftop residents’ garden, childrens play areas, raised growing beds, herb gardens and several intimate “secret gardens”.

Marc Taylor, Director of Kelvin Properties, said:

“Our plans will allow a community to flourish and reinvigorate an incredible building while protecting the environment and boosting the local economy.

“Glasgow’s west end continues to be a welcoming and highly attractive place to live and demand for properties continues to grow. We’re very pleased that our plans for the redevelopment will restore this stunning building to its former glory and provide much-needed high-quality homes in a fantastic location. Although the building isn’t listed, we will retain its fantastic architectural features.

“We have also made sure to maximise outdoor space for the residents - we feel the rooftop space will be particularly attractive.”

Allan McDonald, Asset Maximisation Manager for City Property added:

“We are delighted to hear that Kelvin Properties have received planning approval for this exciting residential development at Napiershall Street. Not only will the development create new homes within this popular area of the city, but it  will help to restore this 130-year old building to it’s former glory. We look forward to watching this development get underway”
