East Dunbartonshire Council has given the all clear to a £5m community hub in Lennoxtown which will entail the demolition of two tenements and a parade of shops on the town’s Main Street to create an all-in-one facility for council services. Designed by Anderson Bell Christie the hub will be built by Morgan Sindall on behalf of hub West Scotland and includes a library, council offices, community space and NHS facility. It is designed to ‘re-establish the grain of the street’ with a linear two-storey building broken by a vertical feature and is clad in textured brick, with timber and glass elements. “The development of the new facility will see over £5m of investment by the Council within Lennoxtown and will assist with the regeneration of the village centre.”
Construction work is expected to get underway in February 2015.
