60 affordable homes delivered in Partick
September 14 2022
Partick Housing Association has added 60 affordable homes to its estate with the completion of Mansfield Gate, a redevelopment of the former St Peters School on Chancellor Street, Dowanhill Street and White Street.
Partly funded by Glasgow City Council the scheme delivers 31 flats for social rent alongside 21 at mid-market rent and eight supported accommodation units.
Designed by Collective Architecture the £8m project retains the school building while adding a linked new build section designed to extend the local grid iron pattern of surrounding streets.
This led to the demolition of the east wing along Dowanhill Street, replaced by a new build with similar massing to the retained block.
First approved in 2016, completion was delayed by the collapse of Central Building Contractors.

It's a grim back courtyard - in fact I've seen cheerier execution squares
