Historic Glasgow school to be converted into flats

Kelvin Properties will begin work on the ‘highly anticipated’ transformation of the former Glasgow school in late summer.

The Victorian sandstone Napiershall Street School, which opened in 1900 and closed in the 1980s, is being restored and converted into 24 apartments including four penthouses.

There are also 25 new apartments around the existing building.

The plans have now been approved by Glasgow City Council’s Planning Committee.

It is the latest project in a major growth phase for urban regeneration specialists Kelvin Properties, who recently moved into their new Glasgow city center office.

The company has announced plans to expand its team and has hired a number of new senior staff including Andrew Reid as Project Manager of Keepmoat Homes and Jonathan McCausland who has joined from CALA Homes as Technical Manager.

The Glasgow-based developer has also recently begun work on a 48-flat development on Logie Green Road in Edinburgh, which will provide 12 ‘much needed’ affordable flats in the Canonmills area of ​​the Scottish capital as part of the development.

Following completion in January, all residents have now moved into Kelvin Properties’ Waverley Park development in Shawlands.

Marc Taylor, Director of Kelvin Properties, said: “We are delighted with the Planning Committee’s approval to carefully restore this old school building and create a development that will benefit the local community.

“We believe this development will set the gold standard for sustainability and community building through the quality common spaces we have created on the site.

“This is a very exciting time for the company as we continue to explore further opportunities to introduce forward-thinking developments across central Scotland.

“Glasgow’s West End faces a serious shortage of supply for modern new build housing and we expect the location to be very attractive to potential buyers.”

Controversial proposals to severely limit alcohol advertising and promotions in Scotland “could not come at a worse time,” a leading business group has said.

In response to a Scottish Government consultation which contains a series of radical measures that have drawn the ire of much of the business community in Scotland, the Federation of Small Businesses this morning says the proposals increase costs, constrain markets and negatives The effects will go beyond the licensed trade and the beverage industry.

Two leading groups supporting start-up businesses in Scotland are adding a third training course to their program offering to help small businesses become much bigger.

The Hunter Foundation and Scottish EDGE have launched Pre-Scaler, open to Scottish-based entrepreneurs from all sectors. Successful applicants will spend a total of five days between May and September participating in online and in-person development modules to support their expansion plans.
