Hundreds of new homes could be built at a historic university campus in the west end of Glasgow after the 31 acre site was put up for sale.

The Jordanhill campus has been placed on the market three years after the University of Strathclyde moved out.

Planning officials have approved the site, which includes the B-listed David Stow building, for up to 364 new homes.

Marketing firm JLL said it expected the campus to attract international interest from potential developers.

'Sought-after accommodation'

Nina Stobie, associate director, JLL, said: "This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for developers. Jordanhill Campus occupies a prime location in Glasgow and its elevated position offers exceptional views over the city.

"We expect interest in the site to be extremely high and not just limited to Scotland. Once transformed, it will be home to some of the most sought-after accommodation in the country."

The site comes with "minded-to-grant" planning permission in principle for up to 364 residential units.

Strathclyde University has worked with Glasgow City Council and Historic Scotland to prepare a campus plan, which could be delivered over 12 development plots.

It is anticipated that the three-storey David Stow building, which was completed in 1922, could be converted for up to 71 residential apartments.

Two further buildings - Graham House and Douglas House - could house up to 23 apartments each.

The remaining 1960s buildings on the site are recommended for demolition which would allow for hundreds of new build homes.
