Watkin Jones submits planning application for Glasgow tax office site


CGI of what Watkin Jones is planning

Watkin Jones Group, a specialist in build-to-rent and purpose-built student residential developments, plans to build student accommodation where the old HMRC building stands on India Street.

If consented, the new development, designed by Hawkins Brown, will be called The Àrd.

The planning application seeks to partially demolish Portcullis House but retain some of the concrete frame. Two buildings of 36-storeys and 10-storeys, totalling 784

A sky lounge on the top floor of the taller building will provide a viewing deck to host revenue-generating events.

Watkin Jones has completed 10 student accommodation developments in Glasgow since 2011, totalling nearly 4,000 student rooms to date.

Planning director Iain Smith said: “This exciting development at The Àrd will regenerate a brownfield site bringing vitality to this part of the city, providing high-quality and much-needed student homes, in addition to greatly increased public realm.

“It will help to address a chronic undersupply of student accommodation, as well as repopulating the city centre and benefit local businesses as part of an overall renewal of the west end.”

NuGen Properties built an extension to the rear of my property, replacing the old conservatory. I am so pleased I chose this company. From the initial quotation, through the build and after they were professional, polite & well mannered. They kept the site tidy throughout the build and kept me informed of each stage as it happened. The work was finished to a good standard and I have had nothing but compliments on their work. I am already planning for them to come back and do some more work for me in a few months. I would 100% recommend them.
