£40m office-to-flats scheme planned in Glasgow
Developer FM Group has lodged a planning application for a £40m residential redevelopment of the former Scottish Power headquarters in Glasgow.
The site comprises the Grade B-listed Cathcart House on Spean Street and a 1960s office building conversion. Under FM Group’s plans, the listed building will be converted into 80 apartments over five levels. Integral to the design is the reinstated central light well and amenity courtyard. The ground floor space will accommodate new leisure and commercial use.
The office extension building will be refurbished to develop a further 45 apartments over six levels with underground car parking.
FM Group director Jonathon Milne said: “These plans have been well received locally and we are excited about the potential for this development which will provide highly desirable, city living, in line with Glasgow City Council policy.”
FM Group specialises in restoring listed buildings and is currently working on the restoration of Ury Castle in Aberdeenshire and the refurbishment of Dalnair Castle on the edge of Loch Lomond.
Mr Milne added: “FM Group has gained a reputation for refurbishing buildings into award-winning mixed use projects. Projects in Glasgow include, The Pinnacle on Bothwell Street, which has positively added to the immediate area and led to further development, 53 Morrison Street, which was the catalyst for the redevelopment of the Tradeston area, and the iconic Herald HQ building.”
