Land earmarked for development at Port Dundas
Industrial land at Port Dundas, Glasgow, has been earmarked development with Wellwood Leslie Architects intending to build a block of 68 flats for private rent.
The development would be situated on the established Speirs Wharf development, Urban Realm reports.
Located on Craighall Road, the project would require the demolition of a red-brick Victorian building to begin the process of repopulating the area.
Wellwood Leslie Architects wrote: “Our goal for this proposal is to stimulate and support the return of life and community to a former industrial area by supporting the growing population.
“The older brick building is showing evidence of settlement where cracking and sagging is present. To keep the existing building elements of the front facade would require to be demolished, the structure stabilised and the existing foundations reinforced.”
In place of the red-brick building, a modern blonde-brick apartment block would stand with a dark grey zinc-clas ground flood, potentially housing a cafe.
