Golspie Street housing officially unveiled
April 27 2012
Built by Cruden Homes the scheme is distinguished by a series of coloured ‘pods’ projecting out onto the surrounding streetscape, distinguishing it from a wave of redevelopment that has taken place in the area.
It also marks the gateway to the central Govan conservation area and is intended to heal the fractured landscape that exists in the vicinity.
Costed at £13m the scheme provides 102 apartments, 42 of which are being made available as low cost housing for sale and 60 which will be put forward for rent.
The scheme was officially unveiled by former A+DS chair Raymond Young who praised the striking tenemental design and quality brickwork.
