Design proposal

The design intent is to create a development that reflects the site’s waterfront gateway and incorporates Glasgow’s historical urban grain and character.

The design proposals have been updated further to planning being consented in 2018 to provide a varied and enhance skyline that contributes to the already existent city dynamic.

The images below note the proposed heights for each building on plan. However, the design is at an early stage and this is subject to change following on-going discussions with Glasgow City Council.

Updated proposal

The number of apartments has been increased to around 670 with the introduction of a taller building and revised massing which acts as a visual landmark and gateway to the site when viewed from the Kingston Bridge.

Around 670 new homes which are a mix of studio, 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom apartments.


All of the new homes will be available to rent on long term assured tenancies with on-site management by Dandara Living.

Residents & Community

A range of flexible amenity spaces including communal kitchens, lounge spaces, a gym and pet hub.


Space for over 850 cycle stands which are within secure storage areas for residents to use and separate external areas for visitor use.


Approximately 60 carparking spaces located below landscaped podium decks.


The planting will provide amenity and structure to the spaces whilst creating important wildlife habitats and seasonal interest. Species will be chosen that respond to the variety of conditions that exist in and around the site, ensuring all year round structure.

The updated proposals for City Wharf will provide around 670 new homes consisting of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments. All of the new homes will be available to rent on long term assured tenancies and managed by Dandara Living. We price all of our apartments at a level that is accessible to a wide range of people.

Many apartments will have their own private balcony or terrace. All of the kitchens will be fitted out with integrated appliances and the bedrooms all have built in wardrobes. The two bed apartments have been designed with sharers in mind with equal sized ensuite bedrooms.

A linear park extends fully along the length of the site, providing a buffer between the apartment buildings and the Kingston Bridge giving Glasgow City a significant new urban park.

The arrangement of courtyard spaces between the buildings are proposed to be mix of private amenity and recreational areas for residents to use. One of the key benefits of the revised design proposal is to increase the size of the south facing landscaped space adjacent to the riverside and provide a new public square along Anderston Quay.
