The Festival Hub (The Pyramid/Anderston Kelvingrove Parish Church), G3 8DS
A walking tour with the project architects from Collective Architecture who have led the final phases of the regeneration of Anderston, following the newly accessible and reinstated Argyle Street.
This city centre area of Glasgow has undergone significant redevelopment over the past 8 years, and the completed masterplan will provide over 500 new homes for existing residents, replacing outdated and substandard housing stock.
Beginning at Anderson Station the walk will set off from the east following the arterial route of Argyle Street, passing a number of award-winning Collective Architecture projects which have played a significant role in remaking the urban streetscape.
Collective Architecture have recently completed the regeneration project with Anderston Phases 4 & 5 on behalf of Sanctuary Scotland Housing Association. The final phases of the regeneration are located within a site which includes an important junction with St Vincent Street, a major arterial road into the city centre. The site was previously occupied by large 10 storey prefabricated slab blocks, set back from St Vincent Street, as well as a number of smaller 4 storey blocks. The development of 206 new build flats, with a mixed tenure of social rent and mid-market rent. This final scheme seeks to reinstate the historic Victorian street pattern which was eradicated by comprehensive redevelopment in the 1960’s, and which led to the loss of tenements, churches and a significant section of Argyle Street.
