Drum Property Group has delivered 324 build-to-rent apartments at Buchanan Wharf in Glasgow city centre for Legal & General Investment Management.
The £85m development delivered 324 apartments as part of a wider regeneration of three city blocks anchored by Barclays Bank. The scheme overlooks Kingston Square by way of a ground floor commercial unit and extends the city’s urban grain across the River Clyde.
Designed by Stallan-Brand architects the development employs vertical format terracotta ‘planks’ to evoke a hand-crafted image above a hardwearing glass reinforced concrete base.
The practice states: “We feel the inherent mass, patina, natural variation and richness created by the articulation of shadow offers a contemporary rework of the best examples of powerful and ornate Glaswegian architecture of the Victorian, Edwardian and Art Deco eras.”
Two communal terraces are provided on the first and 16th floors.
