GYM Plan For Vacant South Side Office Get The Go-Ahead

EMPTY offices on Glasgow’s South Side can be turned into a fitness facility, city planners have agreed.

The application involving two-storey premises at 47 Haggs Road, Shawlands, beside Pollok Park, has been approved by council officials. The building was formerly the office for Dollar Rae Shopfitters, who have ceased trading.

Under the plan, the ground floor will be the main gym area with changing facilities plus a reception area, staff kitchen and accessible toilet.

Upstairs there will be a warm-up studio, small treatment rooms, changing and toilet facilities and offices.

A statement submitted with the application indicated the gym — to be known as Club 300 — will be open from 6am to 10pm, Monday to Sunday.
There would be a maximum membership of 300 people.

The statement continues: “The applicant has been a fitness operator in the Glasgow area for five years and currently operates from a gym in Paisley.”
