PROPOSALS Revealed For Gorbals High Flats Site

15 November, 2023 | News

NEW Gorbals Housing Association has started consultation over its plans for redevelopment of land once multi-storey flats are demolished next year.

The high-rise blocks at 341 and 305 Caledonia Road are to be knocked down for fire safety reasons.

Around 150 flats and houses for social rent are being proposed to replace the 276 units in the tower blocks.

Two architecture firms have been engaged in the design process, each developing proposals for separate parts of the site.

The housing association states on its website: “The proposals are aimed at providing housing to meet a range of need, particularly larger families and people with mobility issues (including wheelchair users).

“The mix of seven-storey, four-storey and two-storey elements reflects the existing buildings in the area.

“The development follows the successful Crown Street model with maisonettes on the ground and first floors with flats above, sharing a private back court area. The proposals also include a number of two-storey terraced houses.”
