Credential resubmit Venlaw Tower plan

A vertically banded feature glass and steel mesh tiles serving as a crown, which will be back-illuminated at night and the podium will be faced in concrete and Portland stone or a stone composite panel. With consent for an approved 18 storey office tower, deemed uneconomical in the present market, due to lapse in 2015 the developer has instructed ZM Architecture to revisit a 2010 tower proposal for 83 flats with no on-site parking, in addition to 205sq/m of ground floor commercial space. First submitted back in 2010 the build, backed by just £9m, is intended to ‘breathe life’ into the Seifert designed   Elmbank Gardens complex, a section of which has no pavement, by improving public realm on Newton Street with an extended and widened pedestrian route. Unlike its neighbour the new build will be predominantly clad in glass with white cement fibre modular cladding panels reserved for the eastern elevation.
