BTR developer to host consultation event on Glasgow riverfront plans

BUILD to rent developer Dandara Living is set to host a virtual public consultation event for its proposed City Wharf development at Anderston Quay in Glasgow.

Situated next to the Kingston Bridge, the company aims to regenerate the derelict area and transform the riverside site into a mixed-use development. The plans include a collection of circa 670 apartments for rent, with associated amenities such as a gym, pet hub, residents lounge, and co-working spaces with views onto the River Clyde.

Designed by Manson, the development will be within a landscaped setting with ‘striking’ outdoor spaces for residents and the local community to enjoy.

Members of the public are invited to view the proposed plans from Wednesday June 15 on the project website with the opportunity to provide feedback up until Friday July 8.  On the 16th, the team will use the website to host a live chat consultation event where interested parties can log on at any time between 3pm and 6pm and talk to a member of the team. Anyone unable to access the site can contact the team by phone on 0800 987 5990 or email at

Rachel Allwood from Dandara Living said, “Our design proposals embrace Glasgow City Council’s ambitions to increase city living, as well as reflect the calibre and character expected on such a prominent location and greatly enhance the ongoing redevelopment of the River Clyde. The site has been derelict for many years, and we are keen to create a development that will proudly help to regenerate this prominent waterfront site.”

Dandara originally secured planning permission for the site in 2018 and revealed that a fresh application is being made to ‘reflect a number of improvements’, such as increased apartment sizes, and new features including a bike hub and pet hub. The outdoor public space has also been reconfigured to activate routes from the city centre and Anderston Train Station towards the river front. The updated plans are also said to incorporate the latest technical standards specifically in relation to fire and energy performance.
