Plans have been submitted for the third phase of an award-winning development in the Gorbals area of Glasgow.
Regeneration specialist Urban Union is seeking planning permission from Glasgow City Council to deliver the homes and commercial space at Laurieston Living.
In the first phase, 364 affordable and private homes were delivered in partnership with New Gorbals Housing Association. A further 190 homes are currently being developed as part of Phase 2 which is due to be completed by autumn 2021.
In a £140m revitalisation of the Gorbals area, Urban Union plans to deliver four phases over nine years. The site forms part of the wider Transforming Communities: Glasgow programme that aims to regenerate eight key neighbourhoods across the city.
Architect Stallan Brand’s plans for Phase 3 consist of a vibrant new build residential development providing 349 dwellings, a mixed-use ground floor along the site’s primary edge, and the final section of an ambitious civic park for the neighbourhood.
Neil McKay, Managing Director of Urban Union, said: “In this new phase of the Laurieston Living project we’re proposing to diversify and build on the homes delivered by phase one and two of the development, helping to further transform the area into a dynamic quarter of the city.”
As one of Glasgow’s eight Transformation Regeneration Areas (TRAs), great importance is placed on embedding Laurieston into the community, linking together aspects of the neighbourhood like the Gorbals and the Citizen’s Theatre and connecting Laurieston to other parts of the city.
