 Students to colonise more redundant office space in Glasgow’s west end

Elder Cannon Architects have submitted plans on behalf of Lysander Student Properties to convert a vacant office building at Clifton Place, Glasgow, into managed student accommodation.

Clifton House will be subdivided internally to form 142 single bed flats and 71 studio flats together with a new ground floor common room extending onto a formal landscape of timber decking, steps and seating laid over an existing concrete embankment connecting to Sauchiehall Street.

Internally a paved courtyard with inbuilt timber seating will be created with existing footpaths retained whilst roads and parking spaces give way to new street furniture and planting.

The £7m project is to be undertaken by Kier Construction.
