PROPOSALS for a new “mixed-use development” have been drawn up for the site of a former goods yard in Glasgow.

Progressed by Get Living, the site of the former College Street Goods Yard on High Street, has existing planning permission for a residential-led scheme.

However, the build-to-rent operator feels there is a strong case to revisit the scheme, building on learning from the pandemic, to create a more community-focused mixed-use development that will be sustainable for residents, the local community and the economy.

Glasgow Times:

The proposals for the new urban neighbourhood include commercial uses and build-to-rent residential and student accommodation.

Residents are offered security of tenure with tenancies up to three-year, with the flexibility of renting and having access to wider on-site amenities, such as gyms and workspaces.

The plans also boast a range of accessible green spaces and public realm, providing a mix of amenity and open spaces which will also be accessible to those outwith the development.

Members of the public are to be given the opportunity to ask the development team questions and provide feedback at an online consultation event on October 14, between 2pm and 8pm.
