PLANS for a residential development in the Gorbals have been submitted to Glasgow City Council for approval.
New Gorbals Housing Association has drawn up proposals for the former Gorbals Health Centre plot on Pine Place, beside Gorbals Rose Garden.
There would be 28 new homes, 18 of which would be one and two-bedroom flats and 10 of which would be four and five-bedroom houses.
A design document included with the application states: “The Pine Place development will provide new homes for social rent near the centre of Glasgow, building on the recent and continuing regeneration of the wider Gorbals area.”
It continues: “The elevational treatment of the five-storey apartment block is ordered and rational taking its cue from the heritage of the Gorbals and context; tough and robust but timeless.
“An expressed and generous daylit communal entrance connects to the garden and provides lift and stair access to upper levels.
“Windows are generous, affording good daylight to dwellings, maximising views in all directions. Balconies are typically expressed as part of the building fabric rather than ‘outboard’ of the facade, providing protection and year-round usable external amenity to each home.
“The two to three-storey houses establish a strong built edge to Pine Place. These well-defined street-based buildings with paired front doors enliven the public realm and promote a sense of safety within the area.”
The application is pending assessment by Glasgow City Council planners.
The health centre closed in 2019 following opening of a new facility nearby.
