Detailed plans for the first phase of regeneration of Shawlands Arcade in Glasgow have now been submitted.
The £150million regeneration plan devised by Haus Collective will see 1960s commercial development swept away in favor of hundreds of new homes above ground floor shops.
Under the new proposals, which were updated ahead of a community consultation in May, the first stage will include 330 one-, two- and three-bedroom rental apartments, ground-floor retail and commercial space, as well as landscaped gardens and roof terraces. .
A separate application, requesting planning permission in principle for the entire master plan, has also been submitted.
Clydebuilt LP, a partnership between Strathclyde Pension Fund and Ediston Real Estate, has pledged to retain half of the land area as public open space.
Neal Jamieson, Director of Ediston Real Estate, said: “We are pleased to submit plans for a viable alternative to the existing Arcade. After consulting with the community over the past year, we know that a replacement for the current outdated complex is highly sought after. The proposed balance between housing and retail has been carefully considered to ensure realistic and deliverable regeneration.
An independent economic impact assessment has been submitted as part of the application and confirms that the planned £150m investment in Shawlands will replace a key town center asset and prevent it from failing. falls into disuse.
Subject to planning, work will begin on the first phase next summer, allowing retailers to move in before work begins on a second phase of an additional 300 homes in 2026.
