Renfrewshire Council wants permission to flatten C-listed Kelvin House in Marshall’s Lane – arguing that it would not be “economically viable” to keep it.Planning documents said an offer was received from property development company Nixon Blue which would see the location used for “high quality” riverside flats and ground floor commercial units.Initial proposals include the adjoining B-listed Forbes Place being kept and refurbished to provide 16 of the apartments, the former depot razed and replaced by eight and 10 located on the footprint of Kelvin House.A letter signed by George Hunter, the local authority’s chief economic and regeneration officer, said: “It is not economically viable to retain Kelvin House due to its severely dilapidated condition, demonstrated lack of interest, anticipated development value and lack of a suitable reuse option.”He added that knocking the building down would deliver “significant benefits” to the wider community.Renfrewshire Live, the new free app dedicated to bringing you around the clock breaking news, is now available to download.Powered by the Paisley Daily Express, Renfrewshire Live is your go-to source for news, features and sport with live coverage provided direct to the app, seven days a week.The dedicated team of experienced journalists, responsible for the publication of the award-winning Express, will focus on breaking news, day and night, across Renfrewshire’s towns and villages.There is also a dedicated St Mirren section that will follow every kick of the ball with the Buddies.Available on both Android and Apple.
