Candleriggs, Glasgow

Occupying a whole urban block of Glasgow’s Merchant City, Candleriggs Quarter is a major development that will transform the area. The mixed-use scheme, which has received full planning consent, is at the forefront of Build to Rent (BTR) in the UK, providing 586 flats of varying sizes with associated amenities for the residents, as well as a new civic square, 578 bed student accommodation, 128 bed hotel and 42,000 ft2 of commercial space.

CDA were instrumental in rationalising and developing the concept design by RMA simplifying the construction to improve the financial viability of the development.
