News Update Sep 2007 re Site Development: Tiger Developments purchased in mid-2007 the ten-acre Scotland Street site which includes architect Charles Rennie Macintosh’s Scotland Street School. The site was subject of redevelopment proposals by Keppie Design in the late nineties. The planned M74 extension is due to include an exit near the site (Ed. this motorway extension has now been built and opened some years ago).
Cooper Cromar Architects appointed to produce a masterplan and density feasibility study for the site. An outline planning application is due to be submitted before the end of 2007. £100m Proposal by Tiger Developments incl. 358,000sqft office space; 130-bed hotel; retail units.
Scotland Street School to be retained
Designed by Mackintosh for the School Board of Glasgow, this interesting stone building features symmetrical glazed stair towers, similar to the Modernist Werkbund & Fagus Shoe Factory by Gropius in Germany but with typical Mackintosh close-centred grids of black leaded glass.
The School closed in 1979 due to insufficient pupil numbers but was refurbished when Glasgow became European capital of Culture in 1990. Since then it has become the Glasgow Museum of Education, featuring an audio visual theatre, period classrooms and exhibition space.
