DESIGNS Revealed For Next Phase Of New Glasgow Canalside Quarter

10 January, 2022 | Major Developments, Regeneration, Glasgow's Canal

NEARLY 80 three-storey terraced houses are proposed for the second stage of the massive Dundashill development.

A planning application seeking permission for 64 three-bedroom houses and 15 four-bed properties, plus a communal sunken garden, has been submitted by Bigg Regeneration.

The properties are proposed for platform 4a at Dundashill, where around 600 homes are to be built on the site of the former Diageo distillery.

A design document included with the application states: “The proposals reflect the ambitions of Bigg Regeneration and will continue to build on the commitments already realised at Dundashill, to promote this as a emerging canalside, distinctive, urban living quarter.

“There is a strong belief in high quality, crafted architecture, public realm and landscape that is well connected to its local and wider context.

“Bigg Regeneration is proposing to deliver housing that responds to the daring and distinctive character of this emerging new place.”

The first phase at Dundashill involves around 90 properties by West of Scotland Housing Association for mid-market rent on platform 3, with work due start this month.

Bigg hopes to start the plot 4a phase in the summer, followed by plot 4b and then plot 2, which is described as having the potential to accommodate “a signature piece of architecture for the Glasgow skyline”.

The design statement continues: “A key potential of platform 4A is that it sits atop Dundashill, affording expansive light quality and views across the city in all directions, as well as providing the opportunity for a centrally located community garden. The designs look to optimise on these features, through orientation, terraces and large openings.

All dwellings will have back gardens and roof terraces. There will be one car parking space per dwelling on street, and additional visitor spaces spread out.
