Park Circus to be finished
Work begins on masterplan missing link
Details have been unveiled ahead of work beginning to complete the missing link in one of Glasgow’s treasured architectural neighbourhoods.
A stretch of the outer ring of Glasgow’s Park Circus was never built when money for the 19th century scheme ran out.
Work is to get under way next month on 98 apartments that will complete Charles Wilson’s 1850s masterplan for housing built in concentric rings.
Park Quadrant Residences by Expresso Property will match the height and aesthetic of the original plan for the row of buildings.
Natural sandstone will be used to complement the palette of materials used at Park Circus, while the roof echoes the design of nearby Park Terrace.
David Gardner, architect at Holmes Miller, said: “The Park Quadrant Residences have been designed to celebrate being part of the completed masterplan, whilst having their own confident architectural language.
“The design creates a subtle contemporary reinterpretation of various key elements including the window proportions, stonework detail and feature entrances.
“We believe Park Quadrant Residences are a fitting tribute to Charles Wilson’s original plans and a crowning jewel in the Park area.”
