Proposed Demolition & (More) Student Accommodation

Postby yoker brian » Tue Jul 07, 2015 5:53 pm

Seen this on facebook:

A planning application to demolish the B-Listed building at the corner of Miller Street and Argyle Street has been submitted to Glasgow City Council. The building is within the Glasgow Central Conservation area. Student flats are to replace the demolished building http://bit.ly/1dJvsxb

It was originally planned to 'makeover' the building – retaining the facade http://bit.ly/16bYLCl

To object to this building being demolished please email your politicians via www.writetothem.com

And/or add objections via the Council's website quoting the reference "15/01492/DC " http://bit.ly/1fjQynu

The sources I've heard from say that the internal frame of the building is knackered.

It's a lovely building, and I would hate to see it go. However, I'm more of a mind to think that I'd rather have something there than an empty building crumbling around our ears. I can't see a commercial use for that building in it's current state, sadly.

YMMV, however.
