Park Quadrant given green light
Glasgow City Council’s planning applications committee have now given the green light to the building of 98 homes at Park Quadrant in the West End of the City after detailed consideration of the proposals including a site visit and hearing held on 16th August 2016.
Following a successful marketing exercise by City Property, the sale of the land to Expresso Property will generate a capital receipt of £6.2million for the Council as well as create up to 500 construction jobs in an added boost to the local economy.
In keeping with special character of the Park Conservation Area, Expresso Property will develop 98 flats at the prestigious site which adjoins listed properties and is adjacent to Kelvingrove Park. Working in partnership with Sir Robert McAlpine Enterprises and with architects Holmes Miller, the developer will provide a mix of high quality housing to suit a cross-section of markets with a variety of apartments.
Nick Robinson, co-director of Expresso Property, said: “This is undoubtedly one of the best addresses in Glasgow. One of the key concepts throughout the evolution of the design was to create a luxury, high-end product that forged a dynamic link between old and new. The design follows the original approach within the area, to celebrate the very best standards of living and their relationship to their park-land setting and the wonderful urban spaces of Park District.”
