Plans for the final phase of a huge £95m development in Glasgow are underway.

A new multi-use development on a five-acre site in Collegelands will consist of a 586-bed student space, 182 build-to-rent apartments, an arts facility, an events space, a cafe and a courtyard. 

Plans also reveal a two-and-a-half-acre park in the heart of the new neighbourhood, with orchard and blossom trees as well as community growing areas.

Glasgow Times:

A proposal of application notice has been lodged with Glasgow City Council by Glasgow Enlightenment Limited, a joint venture between Dawn Developments Limited and Drum Property Group.

A formal application notice will be submitted to the council in the summer after a public consultation period.

The first of these will take place in the This is Fresh student residence building at 10 Havannah Street on March 26 from 3pm to 7pm.

Two decades in the making, the Collegelands regeneration project was first launched in 2004 to bring new homes and opportunities to the city's Calton.

The land is already home to a new Moxy hotel, offices, homes and shops.

Paul O’Donnell of Glasgow Enlightenment said: “This new development will mark the completion of the 20-year long Collegelands masterplan to regenerate the Calton area of the city. This important project will create 250 jobs during construction, and we hope will act as a catalyst for further development in the area.

“These plans are the culmination of years of conversation with local people and the City Council on how this final piece of the Collegelands jigsaw could look.

"We are excited to draw all these ideas together into this new proposal and to finally be able to share it with the local community.

"It is important that the new development is right for those who live, study and work in the Merchant City and Calton areas of Glasgow.

“The original concept for regeneration at Collegelands remains the same as it did almost two decades ago – to create a vibrant city centre district that will serve Glasgow for generations to come.”

Glasgow Enlightenment’s Graeme Bone added: “We hope that local people will come along and have their say on this proposed development which will not only enrich the area by providing much-needed new homes and student accommodation but also offer a safe, well-lit place where people can exercise or relax and chat with friends, along with community cultural events for everyone to enjoy.”

A series of events are being held during the pre-application process and views of local people can be shared through the new Collegelands Park website at
