Dandara Living submits plans for The Stores (formerly City Wharf), a Build to Rent and student accommodation development in a prominent regeneration area in Glasgow. The scheme will transform the longstanding derelict site.

The Stores development sits adjacent to the River Clyde, immediately to the west of the city centre in the area of Anderston. At 27 storeys, the scheme will deliver 503 new energy efficient Build to Rent apartments and 491 student homes over three buildings.

The development will provide a key architectural landmark and offer 360-degree views across the Glasgow city from the rooftop viewing platform and residents’ lounge.

Amenities span over 8,000 sq ft and include lounges, co-working facilities, a communal kitchen, a cycle store and workshop, and two fully equipped gyms.

Designs for The Stores also includes a public realm for Glasgow in the form of a new urban park and over 4,000 sq ft of commercial space.

Prioritising people over cars, The Stores development will include new pedestrian and cycle connections throughout the site and into adjoining routes – and will have over 870 cycle spaces.

Within a sustainable energy strategy, The Stores development is targeting BREEAM and HQM Accreditations. Significant new greenspace targets a Biodiversity Net Gain.

“Following a series of public consultations we believe our new application offers a terrific opportunity to create a development that reflects its unique and highly visible location.

“It also helps address the local authority’s desire to double the number of people living in the city centre by 2035 and deliver much needed purpose built student accommodation, creating a more sustainable and vibrant city.”
