Glasgow City Council's Executive Committee today (22 September) approved the disposal of the former Golfhill Primary School buildings and janitor's house in Dennistoun, and adjacent ground at Firpark Street.
The site will see - dependent on planning and other consents - the building of 145 two-bedroom flats and a two-bedroom house, and will allow the safeguarding of a B Listed building façade and the development of an adjacent brownfield site.
The former school buildings, house and ground will now be sold to Spectrum Properties (Scotland) Limited for £550,000.
The property was in extremely poor condition, and it was considered that the optimal solution for the site was the retention of the school's southern façade as it has the greatest architectural merit, along with part of the east and west façades, with a new-build flatted development in the internal areas of the former school.
Councillor George Redmond, Executive Member for Jobs, Business and Investment at Glasgow City Council, said: "This decision will allow the development of new flats in a popular area of Dennistoun while protecting the B Listed façades of the former school, and raise a capital receipt for the council."
The sale follows a marketing exercise carried out by City Property, who considered the sale to Spectrum Properties (Scotland) Limited the best offer for the site.
