201 Victoria Rd : Published : 02/12/06
The street hugging "L" plan formation extends the urban grid north into industrial lands isolating the south side from city centre. In scale the design conforms to the dominant tenement form breaking only for a signature copper and glass cantilever over Victoria Rd, distinguishing the prime corner plot and throughfare in a visually satisfying manner. Courtyard parking is decked over to accommodate a communal area, elevated studio apartments comprise the ground floor with a prominent entrance at the road junction. Joins Capitol Park in Forrestgate's portfolio.

Park Quadrant : Published 06/10/07 Park Quadrant works to Charles Wilson's original massing but does not attempt to recreate his classical detailing, which would inevitably lack authenticity. Instead reference is paid to the Park Circus estate by a contemporary elaboration of flowing bay windows and quality materials pallette, 115 underground parking spaces are provided beneath communal gardens to the rear. Park Quadrant is joined by RMJM's Park House redevelopment. Previous design (right) by Curious Group.

Following a mere 150yr hiatus Charles Wilson's 1850 Park Circus masterplan is set to finally see completion with a sweeping crescent of flowing bay windows. It is heartening that the designers haven't succumbed to slavishly imitatating neighbouring properties in fake pastiche but have rather opted for a contemporary reworking of the tenement form within a rich sandstone and copper pallette, successfully creating a 21st century tenement whilst retaining distinctive glaswegian character.

Park House : Published : 07/10/07
Official site
Enjoying an elevated position at the entrance to Park Circus, Park House incorporates the grade B listed tower of the former Park Church within a refurbishment of the previous 1960's office block, now given a new lease of life as apartments. Penthouse suites will enjoy a spectacular rooftop terrace and panoramic views, exterior courtyards will be hard landscaped concealing underground parking. The development joins the proposed completion of Park Terrace.

By working with a typically disastrous 1960's intervention RMJM have been liberated from conservation shackles to produce a more contemporary design than would otherwise have been possible whilst remaining environmentally sound, though this brings design limitations of its own.

The Elipta : Published : 17/11/06
A bold form from Cooper Cromar, difficult site constraints combined with parking requirements conspire to constrict landscaping.

Firhill Stadium : Published 01/12/06 Five floors of residential and 2,520sq/m office space above three levels of decked parking peplace a previous scheme fronting a new stand.
Approved scheme Refused scheme

Five previous attempts to enlarge the stands have been blocked on noise grounds, losing 1,000 family seats for the club in the process. Unsurprisingly Partick Thistle have given up, successfully pleasing nobody as the NIMBY'S suffer new neighbours anyway, the city gets an inferior scheme and Thistle's growth is constrained.
