Plans have been submitted for almost 1,000 homes to be built in Glasgow as part of a new development in a “landmark location”.

The application submitted to Glasgow City Council has outlined 990 homes to be built at Anderston Quay as part of the proposed City Wharf development.

Submitted by rent specialists Dandara Living, who are working alongside property developer Manson, the application outlines plans to build “energy efficient apartments” in a derelict site overlooking the Kingston Bridge.

The development will host 500 one, two, and three bedroom homes for rent and 490 student apartments, alongside a collection of units for commercial use.

A large open plan gym, residents lounge, and co-working spaces with views onto the River Clyde will be located on the ground and first floors.

The site will also feature a new “urban park” for use by residents and the surrounding local community.

Rachel Allwood, planning director of Dandara Living said: “Following a series of public consultations we believe our new application offers a terrific opportunity to create a development that reflects its unique and highly visible location.

“It also helps address the local authority’s desire to double the number of people living in the city centre by 2035 and deliver much needed purpose built student accommodation, creating a more sustainable and vibrant city.”
