A DALMARNOCK site that’s been vacant for more than 50 years is in line for a development of nearly 240 homes.
Springfield Properties has submitted a detailed planning application to Glasgow City Council for 237 affordable apartments on land near Dalmarnock Station.
The proposal is for two and three-bedroom flats in four, five and six storey blocks. A shop is also part of the plan. The buildings will be surrounded by open communal spaces. The site, between Dalmarnock Road and the railway line, has been neglected since 1960.
It is just a few hundred yards away from where work is underway on more than 550 homes at the old Dalmarnock Power Station site. (both sites shown above with industrial buildings and Strathclyde Street separating them)
It is within the area covered by the Clyde Gateway Regeneration programme, an initiative by Glasgow City Council, South Lanarkshire Council and Scottish Enterprise to regenerate 840-hectares of the East End over the 20 years up to 2028.
Tom Leggeat, Springfield Properties group partnership managing director, said: “The submission of this planning application represents a significant step forward in delivering much-needed affordable housing in the East End of Glasgow which is undergoing significant regeneration.
“Clyde Gateway Regeneration is already seeing results. The on-going development of the Magenta commercial centre offering one million square feet of office space has the potential to create 12,000 jobs in Clyde Gateway which will also boost the area. We’re excited to play our part by building 204 affordable good quality homes.
“Each home will also be highly energy efficient which will keep running costs low for the residents. The development is a stone’s throw from a local train station and along key bus routes so is ideally located to travel into the centre of Glasgow.
“It will bring new jobs to the area and support local trades and suppliers.”
