High-density social housing reorients Clydebank back to the river
January 25 2023
Clydebank's urban centre of gravity has been nudged back towards the River Clyde with the completion of 146 apartments for social rent at the former John Brown's shipyard.
The Queens Quay development by Mast Architects has been delivered on behalf of the Wheatley Group, Clydebank Housing Association and West Dunbartonshire Council and incorporates four ground-floor commercial units for Clyde Regeneration.
Opening up the town centre to the waterfront the development is grounded by an extensive new public realm overseen by Raeburn Farquhar Bowen Landscape Architects which balances private interior courtyards, gardens and amenities with new public routes and seating.
Further high-density residential development is planned for the area to help reanimate derelict waterfront land.
