Aedas Architects will work on fifth phase of the Anderston Regeneration programme

Aedas Architects has been appointed by Taylor Wimpey on the fifth and largest construction phase for Glasgow’s Anderston Regeneration programme.

As part of the £35m mixed-use development scheme it will design a residential tower and a commercial building for the redevelopment of Glasgow’s Cadogan Square.

The new 20-storey residential tower on Argyle Street will house 122 apartments with south west views across the River Clyde.

The design for the seven-storey 9180m2 office building – to be known as Cuprum when complete – incorporates an existing structure and new building work, and will increase the existing working community in the building by 20%.

Elevations to the commercial development will feature fully glazed curtain walling. In contrast, the residential tower cladding incorporates masonry panels with inset window bays.

Maurice Rodger, project director at Aedas, said: “Cuprum adds critical mass to the development programme and will play a crucial role in providing commercial and employment opportunities for the city. "

The Anderston Regeneration programme is designed by Aedas for Taylor Wimpey and part of the wider Aedas plan covering 3.5 hectares between Waterloo Street and Argyle Street.

Completion for the Cuprum office is expected in late 2008, with the residential tower following in 2009.
