152 Ibrox ‘gateway’ homes given all clear
Glasgow Housing Association has been granted permission to push ahead with a development of 152 homes in Ibrox, Glasgow, by the end of the year.

Conceived as a ‘gateway’ to Ibrox and an extension of tenements lining Paisley Road West the brownfield scheme takes the form of three ‘pavilions in a structured and formal landscape’.

Offering a mix of social and mid-market rental accommodation close to Ibrox Stadium the scheme will range in height from three to seven storeys the project is set for completion by 2018.

In their design statement architects Elder & Cannon remarked: “The proposals reflect the rigour scale and form of the traditional tenement while the landscape offers some protection from the dual carriageway and the setback allows for the design of the landscape to easily mediate topography and levels while absorbing some casual amenity space.”

The area in question is bounded by Broomloan Road, Skene Road and Paisley Road West and was once occupied by inter-war tenements.

Evocative morning mist. Just missing the cows.
Not too sure about the reality of the other stuff.

Not bad. Keep all that greenery in the plans and it'll do just nicely in an area (surrounding the stadium) that could do with some TLC, so to speak.
