Cooper Cromar has submitted a planning application for the third phase of Sanctuary Housing Association’s regeneration project in Anderston, Glasgow.
The result of a design competition, the residential development forms part of a larger masterplan to regenerate the area which is currently dominated by high rise flats and a poor quality, disconnected public realm.
The proposed design consists of 109 new residential units comprising apartments and maisonettes arranged in four 5-6 storey blocks. The buildings look to make a dynamic and lasting contribution to the area as a whole through their careful placement and considered palette of materials which complement both the existing tenements and earlier phases of the masterplan.
The new public realm works and pedestrian links seek to fully integrate this phase into the overall masterplan and into the wider area in general as an antidote to the inaccessibility of the inhospitable 1960’s inspired decks and walkways throughout Anderston.
