Brown Street

I was out and about a couple of days ago and noticed that this building on Brown Street had a few cones and red & white tape across the front. There was a man with the standard luminous jacket studying it carefully and taking notes. I took a few photos and I could tell that he wasn't too chuffed as he was giving me daggers.  
Does anyone know about a possible development here? Expensive flats? I've been trying to find out about the building but not much luck so far although I'd wondered if it was a rear entrance to the old tobacco warehouse that's on James Watt Street.

Welcome to Urban Glasgow.

Check out the Council's website for Planning Applications. I am sure there was a recent consent granted for an application it that area and involving the retention of the facade of that building.

Sorry the development is the next street.

Thanks Alex / Doog Doog. That's one building I'll be keeping an eye on.

My Granny Brown ived in a one-ender on the corner of Crimea Street and Carrick Street until the early 1960's.  Brown Street is the next one along, heading towards Central Station.

I reckon my dear old Granny (given she was 'emigrated' to Scotstoun in the early 1960's) would be having a little chuckle in her grave if she heard they were planning to build 'Expensive Flats' in Brown Street !
