A FORMER primary school in the South Side of Glasgow could be demolished to make way for 20 new apartments.

CCG Homes, has submitted a planning application to Glasgow City Council to flatten Calderwood Primary School, in Newlands, in order to create the luxury housing development which includes two 3-bedroom penthouses.

The proposal will deliver an attractive conversion and retention of the Victorian Calderwood Lodge and the replacement of the 1960s school extension, which contained classrooms and a games hall.

Managing director Calum Murray commented: “On the back of our successful 156-home development Riverford Gardens in Pollokshaws, CCG Homes is delighted to bring forward proposals for this prime development in Newlands.

“Working with architects Stallan Brand, Calderwood lodge presents an exciting opportunity to create something special with the conversion of the Victorian building and the new build construction of apartments which will be completed with a stunning stone facade.

“This year is set to be one of the busiest on record for CCG Homes and we are incredibly excited for what the future holds as we continue to bring quality, energy efficient homes to the private housing sector in Scotland.”

If successful, the stone walls to the front, rear and side boundaries will be kept and repaired and the same access gate points will be used. The mature trees along the street boundary will also be maintained in keeping with the surrounding residential area.

Private gardens will have additional soft landscaping incorporated, replacing the tarmac playground areas and the development will also include private parking. CCG Homes hope to be on site later this year.
