THE regeneration of a Glasgow community has taken another step forward with the opening of 70 new Cube Housing Association homes.
The development in Liddesdale Road, Milton, include 20 flats specifically designed for older tenants, are the first new-build social housing in Milton since Cube built new homes – also in Liddesdale Road – in 2001.
The £7.5million development, which includes Scottish Government grant funding of £3.6million, is a mix of one, two and three-bedroom flats and terraced houses.
Cube, which is part of Wheatley Group, is increasing the supply of affordable housing in the area and helping people live independently for longer.
Councillor Susan Aitken, Leader of Glasgow City Council, said: “I am delighted to see these new high-quality homes in Milton. This project reflects what we are doing across Glasgow in partnership with housing organisations such as Cube to deliver affordable homes that meet the needs of all types of people.
“This much-needed development will be a great asset for the community and I am sure everyone living in them will enjoy their new homes.”
Cube director David MacKenzie said: “We’re delighted these new homes will help make the area somewhere people are proud to live in.”
Cube’s partners in Wheatley Group, GHA (Glasgow Housing Association), are building 54 homes in nearby Cathay Street, with another 49 GHA homes planned on Scaraway Street.
