Tenants move into new Duke Street housing
Tenants decanted from a number of Sighthill tower blocks have moved into a Glasgow Housing Association development of 46 homes on Duke Street, filling a long-standing gap site in the city centre.

Built by Cruden to designs by Anderson Bell + Christie the £5.8m project incorporates two ground floor commercial units which are currently available to let.

One of those to receive a set of keys was Margaret Thomson, commented: “I love my new home. It’s much warmer, there are no draughts and the rooms are much bigger. The location is great too – I’m out and about in town more than I ever was before.”

GHA will begin delivery  of 100 new homes in Roystonhill, and 116 in Scotstoun next month, while a further 98 homes are being built for GHA tenants at the Commonwealth Games Village in Dalmarnock.
