What the Build to Rent development will look like at 144 Port Dundas Road in Glasgow city centre.

Investment and development company – Soller Group – has submitted a Proposal of Application Notice to Glasgow City Council for a new Build to Rent scheme at 144 Port Dundas Road in Glasgow city centre. Designed by Glasgow-based Mosaic Architecture + Design, the development will include 350 homes – a mix of one and two bedroom apartments for professionals and families living in the city. The scheme will include an amenity space, roof terraces, a retail unit and bike store.

“Our submission of a Proposal of Application Notice for 350 apartments aimed at families and professionals will revitalise a vacant site at 144 Port Dundas Road. The apartments are designed with city living in mind, a mix of one and two bedroom apartments and are within walking distance to the city’s shopping, leisure and transport links. As we recover from recent events, the city centre population will play an important part in contributing to Glasgow’s recovery and local economy.”

Nick Treadaway, founder and CEO, Soller Group

144 Port Dundas Road sits north of Glasgow city centre and fronts onto Port Dundas Road and Milton Street. The site is currently vacant and is close to the M8, and within walking distance to Glasgow’s shops and restaurants, Buchanan Galleries, Queen Street Station, Cowcaddens Subway Station and Glasgow Caledonian University.

“The development has been carefully designed in response to the site’s immediate context and the surrounding townscape in the part of the city and provides a new urban block with appropriate scale and quality of materials.

“The development consists of two high rise blocks to the East and West of the site with lower level accommodation, which reinforce the existing street pattern, allowing day light to penetrate into the central Public Square. The primary entrance is off the Dort Dundas Road which leads into amenity space on the ground floor as well as roof terraces and will be designed to ensure they are used as part of the everyday life of the building.”

Neil Haining, Director, Mosaic Architecture + Design

Soller Group is active in Glasgow, having completed a 301-bed student accommodation building in Glasgow City Centre – which is fully occupied and is now let to the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, and also having recently submitted a planning application for 270,000 sq ft for Phase 2 of its Grade A Carrick Square office development.
