PLANS have been put forward to transform a former Glasgow school into new homes.

The 1890s building, which was previously home to Napiershall Public School, has lain vacant for a number of years.

A planning application put forward to Glasgow City Council by Kelvin Properties, details plans to convert the building into 24 properties, including four penthouse apartments, while retaining its architectural features.

Plans also include the development of a new L-shaped block within the grounds for 25 apartments.

If approved, the proposed four-storey residential development would feature a host of amenities for residents, including an incredible rooftop garden designed to create the perfect environment for outdoor dining, socialising, exercise, and wellness.

Residents will also benefit from children’s play areas and other garden areas.

The site, situated between Glasgow’s Great Western Road and Maryhill Road, closed as a school in the 1980s and has been used most recently as offices.

Kelvin Properties is planning to adopt a fully green energy source to power all the apartments.

Meanwhile, residents will be encouraged to travel more sustainably, with bicycle parking and electric vehicle charging points provided.

Marc Taylor, director of Kelvin Properties, said: “Our plans will allow a community to flourish and reinvigorate an incredible building while protecting the environment and boosting the local economy.

“Glasgow’s West End continues to be a welcoming and highly attractive place to live and demand for properties continues to grow.

“We’re very pleased to have submitted plans for the redevelopment that would restore this stunning building to its former glory and provide much-needed high-quality homes in a fantastic location. Although the building isn’t listed, we will retain its fantastic architectural features.

“We have also made sure to maximise outdoor space for the residents - we feel the rooftop space will be particularly attractive.”

The development is planned to get under way as early as spring 2023, following planning consent being granted.
