34 Residential Flats For Yorkhill

15th May 2018

34 residential flats are planned for a vacant industrial site on Kelvinhaugh Street. Situated opposite True Living Student complex.

“Documenting their design approach the architects wrote: “The elevational design centres around a regular grid pattern influenced by classical architectural proportions. This is emphasised through the fenestration as well as the brick detailing and overall massing of the individual elements of the proposals. The resultant highlighted vertical and horizontal lines form a frame to each element and defines a rhythm and order to each elevation creating depth and interest to the facades.

“Overall massing is further broken down through highlighting common entrances to the building by changes in the surface plane of the brickwork, roof scape and material along the façade. Recessed balconies to the southern gable add additional depth to the prominent gable elevation to Kelvinhaugh Street.”

A private rear garden will be laid out for the benefit of ground floor residents, extending onto communal amenity ground with a landscaped strip providing a ‘defensible space’ to the street.”

Comments must be received by the City Council’s Planning Department by Monday 11th June 2018

Scottish Power Electricty Upgrade

14th May 2018

Starting on the 21st May 2018, Scottish Power will be carrying cable laying works at the top end of St Vincent Crescent from their top exit gate onto the Crescent, heading alongside the Corunna Bowling Club and stopping just short of the entrance to the newer flats.

The work will last until the 31st May however, Scottish Power will do everything they can to complete the works quicker.

During this period there will be some traffic and parking restrictions, which have the Local Authority permissions.

Attached is a flyer which will be hand delivered to those properties impacted.

The work will extend into the car parking areas of the new flats and Scottish Power have agreed a separate set of dates for that where occupancy will be low.

This work is part of Scottish Power’s upgrade works which will increase the voltage from 6600 to 11000 in the Partick area which will allow commercial growth in the area.
