Following the submission of a planning application in February 2022 for the Dundas Square Build to Rent development, property developer Soller Group announces that is has secured planning permission from Glasgow City Council. To the north of Glasgow city centre, the vacant site at 144 Port Dundas Road looks onto Port Dundas Road and Milton Street.  

Ian Gallacher, Iceni Projects, acted as planning consultant throughout the application process, and JLL has been mandated to secure a funding partner for the scheme.

“We’re very pleased that Glasgow City Council has given the green light to our development, of which we are very proud, and which will bring a vacant site back to life in an area seeing considerable inward investment and regeneration.”

Nick Treadaway, founder and CEO, Soller Group

Designed by Mosaic Architecture + Design, Dundas Square will deliver 357 Build to Rent units – a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments. Amenities include roof terraces, a co-working space, gym, retail unit and office space.   

“This well-designed project ticks all the boxes of a successful Build to Rent development. It’s imperative to bring new homes to Glasgow’s supply starved market, with BTL landlords leaving in droves and fewer people able to afford a mortgage. We are delighted to be working with Soller and playing our part in bringing forward this exciting scheme.”

Located in the Cowcaddens district of central Glasgow, residents living at Dundas Square are within walking distance to Central Glasgow’s shops and restaurants, Buchanan Galleries, Queen Street Station, Cowcaddens Subway Station and Glasgow Caledonian University. The M8 is also within easy access to the development. The scheme is ideal for both families and professionals working in Glasgow – as it offers quick and efficient access to the city centre.  

“This development will really strengthen Glasgow’s ambitions to encourage city centre living, which is vital to making Glasgow a sustainable city, where people can walk or cycle easily and safely to work, and where cars are less dominant.  

“Dundas Square will be a pedestrian-friendly courtyard development, with daylight illuminating the central Public Square and a landscaped plaza from Port Dundas Road. There will be amenity space as well as roof terraces, designed to ensure they are used as part of the everyday life of the building.”
