Parade Park, Glasgow
A major residential redevelopment of a significant brownfield site east of Glasgow’s city centre, visibly prominent from the M8 motorway on approaching the city and close to Glasgow Cathedral and the famous Necropolis.
Holmes Miller’s urban design strategy provides a framework of stylish contemporary buildings which have been carefully crafted in a blend of well-considered materials, with appropriate massing, scale and density to create a new city neighbourhood.
The layout maximises designed landscaped areas that have been used to mask parking areas. Blocks are arranged in a series of terraces, courtyards and pavilions, with landscaped amenity areas, and undercroft parking.
