Construction News Image
Mosaic Architecture + Design has secured detailed planning permission and listed building consent for the redevelopment of 50 Bothwell Street in the heart of Glasgow city centre.

The development will provide refurbished office accommodation with a subdivision of ground floor retail and with a new café and business hub at street level.

Stephen Mallon, Director of Mosaic, said: "Securing planning permission and listed building consent for 50 Bothwell Street within two months is a testament to good design and proper engagement with Glasgow City Council Planning Department. In difficult circumstances of late it is heartening to witness talented planners working hard within the council to support development and the Glasgow business community.

"We would like to thank the planners involved in this application for their professionalism in dealing with the applications in the statutory timescale. This allows the development team to move forward to deliver this exciting development on programme to meet market demand in an exciting period for office development in the city."

50 Bothwell Street has lain vacant since 2017. Along with comprehensive internal alterations creating a light-filled and activated atrium, the proposals include plans for an exciting redevelopment of the fifth and sixth floors within the roof to create impressive office floorplates, flooded with natural light and landscaped roof terraces for outside enjoyment and appreciation of the local skyline.

At ground level the extension of the public realm will be provided to Bothwell Street providing an enhanced entrance and activation of the street front with a new café and business hub.

The architectural design is a result of a collaboration between Mosaic Architecture + Design and the international design studio 10 Design.

The development will provide modern and energy efficient office accommodation in a complete refurbishment that is both contemporary and respectful of a listed building with such character. The building will be ready for occupation towards the end of 2022.

The building is held within Orion European Real Estate Fund V.

Richard Low, of Orion Capital Managers, added: "This project represents a £35M investment in Glasgow to create high specification, energy efficient, contemporary office accommodation in the very best location in the city at a time of constrained supply of grade A office space."

Mosaic is working with an experienced design team to deliver the project and the wider team includes: 10 Design, Ryden, Woolgar Hunter, Hollis and Atelier 10.
