PLANNING permission has been given for the first homes to be built as part of a major new residential development north of Glasgow City Centre.
City officials have approved an application by West of Scotland Housing Association for 90 flats at Dundashill, forming the initial phase of a 600-home neighbourhood at the former Diageo distillery site near the canal at Port Dundas.
A design document prepared by Collective Architecture stated: “The site is a narrow platform located halfway up the hill at the centre of the Dundashill Masterplan.
“The platform is elevated and provides spectacular views across Glasgow towards the city centre.”
The homes will be for mid-market and social rent.
A planning application for the second phase at Dundashill was submitted earlier this month.
The Dundashill project is being delivered by Scottish Canals, Bigg Regeneration and Igloo Regeneration and involves land bounded by Eagle Street, High Craighall Road, North Canal Bank Street and Borron Street.
